Everyone has an opinion on the big college football news of the day.

Michigan has its quarterback, as Ole Miss' Shea Patterson announced he is transferring to Ann Arbor. The question still remains if he will be eligible to play in 2018, but the Wolverines should be excited about getting him on the field, whenever that may be.

It looks like Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins is looking forward to facing Patterson on the field.

Here's Haskins' response to the news, via Twitter.

Haskins spent much of this season as J.T. Barrett's backup, but he is the favorite to start at QB for the Buckeyes in 2018. He completed 70.2 percent of his passes on the season, throwing for 565 yards and four touchdowns. Against Michigan, Haskins came off the bench to throw for 94 yards and run for 24 more.

Patterson was the top-ranked quarterback recruit in the 2016 class, while Haskins was ranked No. 8. It would be fun to see them compete against each other next fall.
