Michigan has yet to name its starting quarterback for the 2018 season, but all signs are pointing to Ole Miss transfer QB Shea Patterson being the guy under center for the Wolverines.

Patterson, a former 5-star recruit, has been impressing since his arrival in Ann Arbor, Mich. He's eligible to play right away.

While Jim Harbaugh has yet to name Patterson the starting quarterback, another Michigan coach appears to have leaked the news.

Michigan defensive backs coach Mike Zordich said the following today:

"(Notre Dame's) Quarterback [is] kind of like our guy, great with his feet, good arm. It's a challenge."

"Our guy" sounds a lot like dual-threat quarterback Shea Patterson.

Again, while Michigan has yet to officially announce the news, it would be shocking if Patterson wasn't the quarterback lined up under center Week 1.

Notre Dame and Michigan are set to play on Saturday, Sept. 1. The game will be on NBC.
