DL Adam Patterson
6-3, 260, 4.7
Richland-Northeast High School
Columbia, South Carolina
Amazingly, football isn't even Patterson's first love.
"Football really isn't my sport to be honest," said Patterson. "I'm shocked that all this is happening with all the offers I'm getting since this is really my second year playing football."
The surprise of his unexpected fame and the earliness of the recruiting season has forced the 6-foot-3, 255-pound defensive tackle to play the "completely open" card.
"I just want to keep my options open," said Patterson. "I don't want to really lean towards any schools because I know it's really early in the recruiting process."
Patterson, who doesn't figure to make a decision until closer to Signing Day, does have a plan to determine his future school.
"This season I'm going to be watching all the teams that have offered me," said Patterson. "I'm going to be scouting them since they're scouting me. I plan on seeing how the teams are during the season and I'll probably go to a lot games."
Patterson has already begun some preliminary scouting with unofficial visits to Georgia, Florida, Clemson, South Carolina, and N.C. State. He plans to continue with unofficial trips to Tennessee and Auburn and also plans to attend Michigan's summer camp.
