Could this current Pac 10 commitment be thinking orange? His relationship with Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney could be the difference for this four-star wide receiver.

Four-star wide receiver Jamal Patterson had a strong performance this week against the top players from the Peach state this past weekend.

"I actually just left the GACA Georgia All Star game. It went good. I had three catches for 40 yards," said Patterson. "Then tomorrow I leave tomorrow to go down to Orlando. I will be flying down. My parents are driving down on Wednesday."

What is his goal for the Under-Armour All American game?

"I just want to have fun. I want to stay on my feet and showcase my talent," replied Patterson.

Patterson, who is still committed to Stanford, says the Clemson Tigers are making a strong push for him to switch his commitment.

"Right now I know I am going to take an official visit to Clemson in January. I haven't set the date officially yet," he said. "I am going to Stanford for an official on January 9. Those will be the only two visits I take."

So what would it take for Clemson to overtake Stanford?

"I will see how the official visit goes. I will take it from there," replied Patterson. "I was there for the Georgia Tech and South Carolina games. It was fun. I loved the atmosphere and the fans."

The hiring of former receiver coach Dabo Swinney as head coach has helped the Tigers' chances.

"Oh yeah, that helps. Me and coach Swinney are real tight. He was the receiver coach so now you know he will open things up and get the receivers the ball," said Patterson.
