The fit for junior Michigan Wolverines quarterback Brandon Peters with the Texas football program would be more similar to that of Starkel. Adding someone like Wimbush to the mix is a nice idea, in theory, but Peters and Starkel make a lot of sense with the way the quarterback room is shaking out for the Horns for the upcoming off-season.
With the announcement that former Ole Miss Rebels five-star recruit Shea Patterson will return for head coach Jim Harbaugh and the Wolverines next year, it’s almost guaranteed that Peters will at least explore his transfer options. Patterson is coming back to refine his game for one more year and give another attempt at winning a Big Ten Championship.
Not only is the talented Peters likely to fall in line behind Patterson on the depth chart next year, he will also be behind redshirt freshman Dylan McCaffrey. That’s not a good situation for a quarterback that played well when put in a difficult situation last season. The potential he could bring to the table for the Horns is well worth targeting him on the transfer market.
Peters will be a junior next season, so he’ll have two years of eligibility left wherever he goes. That is if he transfer out to become immediately eligible (graduate transfer route). He could fall in line behind Ehlinger for one year, and get the shot to start if injuries take hold or if he leaves one year early for the 2020 NFL Draft.
