Good newwwws everyone! As first reported by Chris Balas of The Wolverine and confirmed by Josh Henschke of The Michigan Insider/247, word out of Schembechler Hall this evening is that the NCAA is expected to rule Shea Patterson immediately eligible for this year, though even now 247’s report was a bit measured:
The Michigan Insider is able to confirm published reports that Patterson is expected to be granted immediate eligibility by the NCAA with the news coming as soon as Friday. As of a week ago, the U-M programs confidence was at about 90%. On Thursday, TMI can also confirm that the confidence level has risen.
Ole Miss submitted its last response to Shea’s appeal two weeks ago and a resolution was expected tomorrow-ish. Michigan sources have maintained a high level of confidence during this process, and given the relative strength of Shea’s case versus his former school’s, this outcome was favored, but with the NCAA nothing’s ever certain.
