WR Jamal Patterson Profile
"It was fun," Patterson told CUTigers.com in a recent interview. "I wouldn't trade it for anything. It was amazing to go against the top talent."
Early on the All American showed why he is one of the top receivers in the nation when he made a big sideline catch.
"My mentality is when the ball is in the air it is mine," he said. "The corner jumped it. I extended my arms. I knew to catch it with my hands. I just had to go get it. It was in the air so I went to get it. Then I made sure I drug the foot down."
The Stanford verbal commit was able to hang around some other Stanford commits during the week.
"It was nice. It was my first time meeting Jordan [Najvar]. Me and Josh [Nunes] were roommates. We hung out a lot," said Patterson.
Some of his other teammates gave him some trash about going to west coast.
"I got a lot of trash about going to Stanford. A lot of people there were going to teams playing in BCS bowls. They told me I was too good to go to Stanford," said Patterson.
The Stanford official visit will be January 9.
"We are going to Stanford this week. We leave on Thursday and come back on Sunday. My mom, dad and sister are coming with me," said Patterson.
The Tigers are the only other visit in the plans.
"I am going to visit Clemson. I don't have the date yet. I am talking with coach West. I told him I couldn't come this week since I had the Stanford visit set since October. I am not sure which weekend I will go to Clemson," said Patterson.
When asked if the Tigers could turn him during the official visit, Patterson responded, "I don't see it happening right now, but I won't know until I visit. Coach West is pushing me to visit so they must have something big planned. I will see how things go."
Patterson is currently Scout.com's No. 15 wide receiver in the country.
