As Michigan's quarterback job for the 2018 season remains in limbo, one quarterback would consider another season with the Wolverines if the situation is right. A source with knowledge of former Michigan starter Wilton Speight's thinking told the Free Press on Thursday the quarterback would be open to returning to the Wolverines next season if incoming transfer Shea Patterson is ruled ineligible for 2018 by the NCAA. Speight, who graduated from Michigan in December and planned to pursue a graduate transfer, is currently in Los Angeles training while he goes over his options for next season. He plans to have a destination picked by June. According to the source, Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh has told Speight he would be open to the quarterback returning to school if Speight would like to. Patterson transferred to Michigan from Ole Miss in December and is hoping to receive an immediate eligibility waiver from the NCAA, claiming he was misled during his recruiting process.
