David Patten, 6-7 PF Placentia (Calif.) El Dorado, told us recently that he's hearing from Colorado, Texas Tech, Pepperdine, Utah, Oregon St. and USC.
When asked if he had any geographical preference, David said, "I don't care about leaving, but I'd prefer to play somewhere in the midwest to west." David's father, who was there when we did the interview, said that he'd like David to stay close to home, but made it clear that it was David's decision.
David told us that coaching would be a major factor in his decision.
As far as the timing on his decision, David said, "If I get a good offer, I'll take it, but I wouldn't mind waiting."
David said that he has a 2.8 GPA and scored 1140 on the SAT.
