Should Ole Miss fans be worried that 247Sports five-star quarterback prospect Shea Patterson’s commitment may be wavering? 

No. Patterson remains solid with his pledge to the Rebels, but some recent comments on rival Alabama should be interesting if anything changes with his status. 

According to Rivals, Patterson had this to say regarding the Tide:

“Alabama was one of the first schools, when I was breaking down my top five, that was in my top five,” Patterson said. “I'm fully committed to Ole Miss, but if I were ever to take a visit to anywhere else, I don't have anything set up, (but) it would be to Alabama..

“I think pretty much it's over but if anything were to happen or I were to change my mind last-minute or just take another visit, it would probably be Alabama.”

Something to note in case anything happens in Oxford between now and December, as Patterson intends to enrollee early with Ole Miss this winter.
