Texas RB Standout Has BYU Visit Set

A Houston prep standout running back reportedly offered by BYU, Utah and Iowa State is receiving more serious recruiting attention outside Texas than from within, but his sights are seemingly set on a Midwest football powerhouse that has yet to speak to him personally.

Webster Patrick is a 5-8, 205 pound 4.3 forty speedster from Westfield High School in Houston whose high school playing days are now over.

Patrick told TotalBlueSports.com that BYU, Iowa State and Utah have offered scholarships, but Nebraska is clearly his favorite, even though Texas and Texas Tech have also written recruiting letters.

"I kind of have a decision on where I want to go – Nebraska," Patrick said, mainly because it is a predominantly running school.

He said a Cornhusker coach called and "talked to my head coach and said they were going to offer me," said Patrick. That hasn't happened and he has not heard directly from any Nebraska coaches.

Meanwhile, he has finalized at least two of his five allowable official recruiting visits – Dec. 5 to Iowa State and Dec. 12 to BYU (the same weekend the Cougars will be hosting top priority Taitusi Lutui, a 5-Star rated offensive lineman from Snow College.

One school that has befuddled Patrick is Utah, the first to offer him a scholarship. "I'm not sure yet. We had set up a date at one time, but I'm not sure anymore. They haven't contacted me in a while."

As a junior, Patrick posted a 10.22 in the 100 and ended his senior season with impressive numbers. "I think I finished with a 12-yard average per carry, 25 touchdowns and over 1,300 yards. I'm 5-8 and I weighed in at 205 last week. I also squat 455 pounds with a 335-pound bench," Patrick added

He said one of the most important aspects in deciding on where to attend college is an environment he can concentrate on school. "I just want a good surrounding where I can get a good education and that's pretty much it," said Patrick.
