James Yoder Reports: Has Shea Patterson Been Granted Eligibility In 2018? March 13th Update

Twitter and message boards were abuzz last night with rumors that Shea Patterson had been granted eligibility for 2018. Why? A tweet from Ted Rydquist of the JV Report claiming a source informed him that Shea had been granted eligibility. Many in the Michigan football world, myself included, reached out to sources to confirm or debunk this rumor and heard emphatically that nothing is official, even though Patterson, his lawyer and Michigan are very optimistic.
