Patchan joined Miami back in 2014.
Standing six-foot-six and 245 pounds, he possessed all of the physical attributes necessary for success at the collegiate level.
Coming out of high school, Patchan was ranked the 22nd best strong side defensive end in his class.
Over the course of 30 outings with the Hurricanes, Patchan recorded 63 tackles, 8.5 tackles for loss and 3.5 sacks.
In 2019, specifically, he amassed 33 tackles, six tackles for loss and 2.5 sacks.
A medical waiver ultimately granted Patchan a sixth year of eligibility, which h will now use elsewhere.
It remains to be seen what school he ultimately transfers to.
