Jim Harbaugh head coach of the Michigan Wolverines run onto the field prior to the game against the Penn State Nittany Lions at Beaver Stadium on November 21, 2015 in State College, Pennsylvania.

Patterson joined MI during the offseason after transferring from Ole Miss.

Jim Harbaugh has officially declared Patterson the starter for Michigan's season opener against Notre Dame on September 1. He had earlier said Patterson was simply one of four quarterbacks competing to take the first snap, along with Brandon Peters, Dylan McCaffrey and Joe Milton.

Harbaugh confirmed the news at today's M Club of Ann Arbor Luncheon.

Harbaugh praised Patterson's improved knowledge of the team's playbook during an interview with reporters in Ann Arbor last week.

MI fans have high expectations for Patterson following a season in which Michigan's QB play helped limit the Wolverines to eight wins in 2017. He threw for 3,000-plus yards with 23 touchdowns and 12 interceptions over 10 starts at Ole Miss. He received a waiver from the NCAA allowing him to become immediately eligible in the wake of NCAA penalties at Ole Miss.
