Adam Patterson, one of the top defensive linemen in the Palmetto state, visited Clemson earlier this month for junior day. What did Patterson think of his visit to Tiger Town? CUTigers.com has the latest in this recruiting update. <BR>

The 6-3, 255 pound prospect traveled to Clemson last weekend to attend Junior Day. "It was very good visit. I got to watch the practice and we saw some highlight films. We saw the film on the WestZone. I think it will be very nice," Patterson told CUTigers.com in a recent interview.

Patterson enjoyed the time with the Clemson coaching staff during his visit. "I got to talk with the new defensive coordinator. I also talked with Coach Hobby. I also was able to speak with Brad Scott. Coach Scott and Coach Burns are my recruiting coaches," said Patterson.

The offers list is growing for the Richland Northeast standout. "Maryland says they will offer. I already have offers from Georgia Tech and East Carolina. Clemson, Florida, North Carolina State and South Carolina are all showing a lot of interest."

Who is recruiting the star lineman the hardest at this time? "I would probably say Clemson."

When asked if he has any early favorites or leaders, Patterson responded, " I don't have any. I like them all."

The Gators will get a visit from the Palmetto standout. "Yeah I am going to visit Florida this weekend," stated Patterson. "I'm looking forward to it."

The summer will be filled with college trips for the talented defender. "I am going to the Nike camp. I am also going to Georgia Tech. I also think I will do Michigan and Clemson."

"I like to come off the ball strong. I can create a lot of havoc in the backfield. This season I am going to work on getting stronger and faster. I'm going to try to get more aggressive on the field," added the Columbia native.
