"I had a great time visiting Auburn," Patrick says. "It was great hanging around the coaches and seeing the place. Auburn is a great place. I didn't get to see everything today, but I will be back and that's a definite."
Already with offers from Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, LSU, Michigan, Notre Dame and many others, Patrick is well on his way to being a big-time prospect for 2015. With so many choices this early in the process he says it's just a blessing and he's just enjoying the opportunity to check out many of them so early.
"It's big for me because I don't have to wait until later on to narrow stuff down," Patrick says. "I can begin to narrow things down during the season or wait until the end of the season. I want to see all these schools before narrowing things down.
"I'll probably narrow things down to a Top 10 but I can tell you that Auburn will definitely be in the Top 10," he adds. "I just like it there. I feel like I'm home there. Just on my first visit I can tell it's a great place obviously. They've got some good things coming for Auburn. I think it would be nice."
Jacques Patrick is a talented young running back
A school with plenty of history at the running back position with names such as Bo Jackson, Brent Fullwood, Carnelll Williams, Ronnie Brown and Rudi Johnson, Patrick says Auburn's success on the ground in recent seasons and having some upperclassmen at the position makes them an interesting school to look at.
"They have had nine 1,000-yard rushers in the last seven years," Patrick says. "That's real big. Plus they have three junior running backs right now so my timing is perfect. By the time I get there the top three rushers would be gone and I would have a chance to play as a true freshman. That would be big for me."
Planning to narrow down his list over the next few months, Patrick says he'll take things down until close to the beginning of his senior season before making a decision. He says that Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Miami, Michigan and Ohio State will all likely be part of his Top 10 when the time comes.
Patrick visited along with his brother Javonte Seabury, a 2014 wide receiver prospect that got an offer from Miami while taking a visit to Auburn. The speedy receiver is being recruited in the slot by the Tigers and while he doesn't have an offer yet he liked a lot about his visit.
"It was my first time seeing everything and they've got a nice indoor facility," Seabury says. "The weight room is nice. They have a good academic program and I want to major in Civil Engineering. They have one of the best engineering programs in the country. That's why I like them alot."
