One of the top quarterbacks in college football is reportedly not expected to be back in 2019.

Michigan star quarterback Shea Patterson is reportedly expected to leave school early for the NFL Draft, according to a new report.

Bleacher Report's Matt Miller is reporting that the Wolverines' star QB is expected to be a part of the 2019 NFL Draft class.

Multiple sources reportedly expect Patterson to leave Ann Arbor, Michigan following the 2018 season.

From Bleacher Report:

Another underclassman quarterback expected to declare is Michigan’s Shea Patterson. The source explained that Patterson and Haskins both feel they can drive their stock up in this class and will benefit by not competing with the 2020 group that includes Jake Fromm and Tua Tagovailoa. Patterson, a transfer from Ole Miss, also has prized recruit Dylan McCaffrey behind him on the depth chart and looking poised to play next fall. This could, of course, change, but currently, multiple sources expect Michigan to lose Patterson.

Patterson has helped lead Michigan to one of its best seasons in years, as the Wolverines have just one loss and are a serious contender for the College Football Playoff.

Michigan is set to play Indiana today. Kickoff is set for 4 p.m. E.T. on FOX Sports 1.
