The worst kept state secret is over – Jim Harbaugh has officially acknowledged that Michigan does, in fact, have quarterbacks on the roster and named Shea Patterson the starter for the team's opener against Notre Dame.
Official from Michigan: Shea Patterson will be its starting QB at Notre Dame.— Nick Baumgardner (@nickbaumgardner) August 20, 2018
Coming out of high school, Patterson was the No. 4 overall recruit in the country and the top quarterback recruit. He originally signed with Ole Miss, where he played two seasons, but transferred to Michigan during the offseason and received immediate eligibility.
Hilariously, Harbaugh's quarterback announcement actually came before Ohio State's as the Buckeyes still have not formally announced a starting quarterback, though it's been heavily, heavily assumed it will be Dwayne Haskins.
