In a recent interview with CUTigers.com, four-star wide receiver Jamal Patterson had plenty of good things to say about the Clemson Tigers.

"Me and the coaching staff get along real good," he said. "I talk to their staff a lot. I talk to coach Spence, coach Swinney and coach Napier. I have a great bond with their staff. Now, we don't even talk about football any more."

With his senior season quickly approaching, the summertime visits are starting to slow down for the Georgia native.

"My last visits were to Auburn and Stanford," he said. "They were both great visits. I enjoyed myself. Both trips were pretty good."

When asked about his current favorites in the recruiting process, Patterson responded, "I really don't really have a leader. I will narrow things down soon.

"I plan to do some of that after my Notre Dame visit in two weeks. If I don't make that visit I will narrow it down anyways. I will try to narrow it down to five. At the most it will be seven.

"I am not sure when I will commit. If I do go ahead and commit soon I will take my official visits regardless."

The star receiver knows he could see early playing time at Clemson.

"They lose two great receivers in Aaron Kelly and Tyler Grisham. They have combined for over 2000 yards," said Patterson.

Jamal plans to visit Death Valley a few times this fall.

"I will catch some Clemson games this year for sure. I didn't realize Clemson was so close until I went there," said Patterson.

What will be important when the four-star standout selects his college destination?

"I will look at academics and a chance for early playing time. I am looking for a place that feels like a family. I want a great relationship with the coaching staff," replied Patterson.

Patterson finished his junior season with 44 catches for 933 yards and 11 touchdowns. He also helped lead his team to the 3A regional championship.
