Did you want a grainy, poorly-shot highlight video set to a track popular ten years ago? Well you're in luck!
One of the most highly rated Junior College prospects (five-star on Scout and 247, four-star on Rivals) is taking an official visit this weekend to Ole Miss. He is the lone official prospect visiting Oxford this weekend, leading this bloggeur to believe that Hugh Freeze and staff are making Patterson's recruitment a top priority.
Patterson has a load of upside. His size is tremendous (6'4", 205lb) and his speed is enough to make him a true deep ball threat. He is said to be physically dominant over his defenders and to have the football acumen and hands to make the difficult catches. It is because of these factors that he is generally considered the top offensive prospect coming out of junior college this year.
He has long been considered an SEC lock, having been heavily recruited by Arkansas, Auburn, Tennessee, and Georgia. Based on that, I'm having a difficult time picturing him signing his LOI with Ole Miss, but perhaps - and this is a stretch - the recent commitment of Bo Wallace, the #1 Junior College quarterback for this past season, could have an impact on Patterson's opinion of Ole Miss.
Also visiting, unofficially, is Rivals.com's #1 overall high school prospect for 2012-13, Robert Nkemdiche.
How do we know this? His brother, Denzel, who tweets almost as often as he breathes, said so.
allhaildiche_1 coming to the crib tomorrow doe! :)
At least, I think that's what he meant by that. If true, let's hope Robert enjoys the Victorian, Georgian, and revivalist architecture dotting the streets of Oxford's neighborhoods; the quaint, quirky feel of Square Books; the genteel aire of Nielsen's and Hinton and Hinton; the sublime and innovative, yet traditional, dishes of Bouré, 208, and City Grocery; and CoWbOy MaRiO at the Library Y'ALLL!!!!!
