Shea Patterson's eligibility request at MI is reportedly at a 'standstill'

Shea Patterson left Ole Miss and transferred to MI, but will he be on the field for the 2018 season?

The six former Rebels players requested transfers after Ole Miss received NCAA sanctions on December 1.

That decision is at a "standstill", according to attorney Thomas Mars, who told CBS Sports' Dennis Dodd that Patterson and five of his former Ole Miss teammates are still awaiting decisions from the NCAA. It's no secret Jim Harbaugh would love for Patterson, a difference-making quarterback, to be available immediately.

Thomas Mars, the lawyer representing MI junior QB Shea Patterson in his quest for immediate eligibility, said that matters are now at a "standstill".

The hope is the NCAA does provide the necessary documents to Ole Miss soon, and that Ole Miss will have a response ready to file back as soon as it receives since it has had the documentation on hand already courtesy of MI. Because this is the NCAA, however, the fact MI sent copies of the waiver request directly to Ole Miss means nothing since the documentation must come directly from the NCAA for security purposes. Ole Miss is given 10 days to review the documents to respond to the NCAA, but those documents must come from the NCAA. It can make a favorable response, a negative response or no response. The NCAA would then rule at some point after, but several have said they don't expect it to take long once it gets to that point.

Last month, CBS Sports reported details of those waiver requests. Ole Miss and MI officials didn't immediately return request for comment.

"For reasons that aren't entirely clear to me, I learned [Sunday] that the NCAA had not yet sent a duplicate copy of the waiver application package to Ole Miss", Mars said. The parties eventually settled.
