Every fan in Ann Arbor must be celebrating right now, as Shea Patterson announced that he'll return to Michigan for his senior season. After going 10-2 in his first season with the Wolverines, expectations will be high next year.

Patterson showed signs of improvement each week, finishing the regular season with 2,364 passing yards and 23 total touchdowns.

With Ohio State possibly losing Dwayne Haskins after the Rose Bowl and Urban Meyer retiring, the 2019 season could be the golden opportunity that Michigan needs to make the College Football Playoff. However, Patterson won't get too ahead of himself just yet.

In a heartfelt message to his followers on Twitter, the Wolverines' quarterback made it clear that his focus is on winning the Peach Bowl.

Here is the full post:

The Wolverines will lose several impact players for next season, but this latest news surrounding Patterson certainly eases the pain of losing important seniors, such as Karan Higdon and Chase Winovich.

Although Patterson will keep his NFL dreams on hold for another year, the upperclassman can boost his draft stock with another strong season in the Big Ten.

Patterson will return to the gridiron on Dec. 29, when Michigan faces Florida in the Peach Bowl.
