Patten Down To Three Schools

Placentia (CA) El Dorado small forward David Patten says he's narrowed his list down to three schools. Patten has made one visit and will hit two more schools by the end of the month.

Colorado, Pepperdine, Utah In The Mix

Last year, 6-7 small forward David Patten averaged 18 points for El Dorado. He played this spring and summer with the L.A. Rockfish and Dave Benezra.

Patten says that he's made some adjustments and has his list at three: Colorado, Pepperdine and Utah. He's been to see the Buffaloes and will visit Utah and Pepperdine on consecutive weekends beginning Oct. 20.

"I need to see the schools first," Patten said. "I want to take the officials. I really liked the guys at Colorado. It was pretty hot when I was there."

When we watched Patten this summer, he looked like three man. Most of the schools recruiting him agree. "Utah wants me to be a four," Patten said. "Most are recruiting me as a three."
