OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA) -  One day after the NCAA announced penalties against the Ole Miss football program, one of the biggest names on the Rebels' roster could be leaving.

The Ole Miss Spirit reports that quarterback Shea Patterson has been granted permission by the school to talk to other programs about potentially transferring, and programs are also free to contact him.

The former five-star recruit threw for more than 2,000 yards in the Rebels' first seven games in 2017 before being sidelined with a season-ending knee injury.

The report says if Patterson leaves, the favorite to land him is Michigan.
