DT Jeremy Patterson Profile
Among the prospects checked in on by the Tigers' second-year defensive coordinator was Wayne County High School [Jesup] junior Jeremy Patterson.
"That was one of my first times ever really talking to him," Patterson told CUTigers on Tuesday night.
A three-star offensive guard prospect, according to Scout.com, Clemson likes Patterson at defensive tackle. And there has been plenty of contact with the Tigers' coaches.
"It's been pretty good," Patterson said, when asked about his communication with the Clemson coaches. "I talk to Dan Brooks a lot."
Patterson said Brooks has given him plenty of praise.
"He says I'm an explosive player and that I look real good on film," Patterson said.
Along with an offer from Clemson, Florida, Florida State, UNC and N.C. State have also offered Patterson.
The Seminoles like him as an offensive linemen. Everyone else has offered him to play on the defensive side of the ball.
Clemson and Florida State make up his two favorites. Patterson shared thoughts on those two schools.
Clemson: My head coach took me up there. Jody Grooms, he's a big Clemson fan. He showed me everything really. I've seen almost everything up there and I really liked it.
FSU: Florida State has got good facilities, good coaching staff. It looks like a good place to play football. It's close to home.
The three-star prospect plans on graduating in December, so a decision could be made later this summer.
"I'm going to consider how far away from it is, so my family can come and watch," Patterson said. "And would I really see myself there for the next four years?"
As a sophomore, he had 40 tackles and two sacks.
