Shea Patterson says he will return to Michigan in 2019
Michigan quarterback Shea Patterson will return for his senior season.
Patterson made the announcement in an interview with Angelique Chengelis of the Detroit News on Friday.
“I think my original plan was to come here and help the team out as much as I could,” Patterson said. “The thoughts were maybe come out after one year, so I think there might have been some speculation there. At this point, I feel like everybody thinks I’m coming back. Excited to get that out there so they know.”
Patterson confirmed the story himself in a Twitter post.

There had been some talk that Patterson would look into going pro, but the ultimate decision doesn’t come as a massive surprise. Plus, the Michigan quarterback probably doesn’t want this to be his last memory of his biggest rivalry.
