6-2, 190 pound wide receiver prospect Jamal Patterson is watching his impressive offer list grow by the week.

"Oregon just offered today," he told CUTigers.com in a recent interview. "Duke offered last week. Auburn offered last Wednesday I believe."

South Carolina got their chance to impress the Georgia standout last weekend.

"I went to South Carolina on Saturday. It was a nice visit. I liked it up there. I liked the offense that coach Spurrier runs up there," said Patterson.

The prize recruit will compete with some of the top players in the Southeast this weekend.

"I am going to the Scout.com Elite combine this weekend at Auburn. I went to the one Scout had last year in Atlanta," said Patterson.

When asked about his current favorites, Patterson replied, "I don't have any yet. I haven't had a chance to visit some of the schools yet. I am not sure who else will offer. Some of the offers coming in now are surprises. A lot of them have been talking to may coach so I didn't know they were coming."

The summer plans are not clear yet, but some seven on seven tournaments will definitely be in the mix.

"I haven't decided yet where I am going to camp this summer. We do a lot of seven on seven camps. Some of my teammates like Drew Little are getting recruited as well. Last year we went to Hoover. I know we will go there again. We will go to some others also," said Patterson.

When will the future 4-star receiver start to narrow the field?

"I will probably narrow things down after my last visit. I am going to Stanford in June for an unofficial visit. After that I will start narrowing it down," replied Patterson.

Last year Patterson caught 44 passes for 933 yards and 11 touchdowns. As a sophomore he had 28 catches, including seven touchdowns. He is also a track standout, recently setting a Henry County record in the 300 hurdles and maintains a 4.0 GPA.
