Speaking with the Louisville Courier Journal on Sunday night, the 6-foot-8 240 pound big forward from Huntington, W.V. said he has officially eliminated Wake Forest, Virginia, and West Virginia - leaving a final list of Duke, Florida, and Kentucky.
Now all that remains is to decide between those three, with the decision expected to come down on Monday afternoon.
"I think I will make a decision and then sign on [Wednesday]," Patterson told the newspaper. "It'll be a gut feeling."
Longtime friend and unsigned point guard Jai Lucas has also trimmed his list to a final three and will decide on Monday between Kentucky, Florida, and Oklahoma State.
