It appears less and less likely that former Duke basketball player Greg Paulus will join Michigan's football team next fall, but there's a chance Michigan could add another quarterback with a familiar name.

Jason Forcier, the older brother of Michigan freshman quarterback Tate Forcier, hopes to pursue graduate work at Michigan next year. And the elder Forcier, who started his college career as a Michigan quarterback before transferring to Stanford, hasn't ruled out a return to football.

"I'm pretty much in the same boat as Greg Paulus, just as far as appealing to the NCAA," Jason Forcier told ESPN.com.

Jason took the GRE exam last week and is awaiting word on whether he will be admitted to Michigan's graduate sports management program. Football is not Jason's primary motivation to return to Michigan -- he plans to embark on a career in sports business -- but if he gets in, he could seek a waiver from the NCAA to use his final season of eligibility this fall.

"Obviously, sports is going to end for me," Jason Forcier said. "You've got to accept the facts. But it doesn't change my passion for it. So if I can still be involved with it somehow, I feel like I can still participate.

"With the waiver, it would look good that I got into Michigan when I was an undergrad and I transferred to Stanford and did well there, graduated. They know it wouldn't be for a football issue."

The possibility of Forcier joining his little brother on the field this fall remains well in the distance, but it'll be something to monitor.
