From McDonough (Ga.) Henry County High School, Jamal Patterson stands 6-2, 205-pounds. Southeast recruiting expert Burke Hayes had this to say about the Henry County High School star.
"A vertical threat in the truest sense, Patterson stretches the field and often requires a bracket," Burke said. "He is nearly impossible to jam at the line of scrimmage, due to his exceptional upper-body strength. Already a legitimate red-zone threat, he climbs the ladder as well as anybody and wins most jump balls. Puts defenses in a bind because he escapes the jam/press and instantly gets vertical...if corners play off, he is very hard to tackle in space."
Patterson has been on the Gators' radar for some time and continues to give the Gators a look. He recently told me that Stanford and Florida are his co-favorites.
The wide receiver board for the Gators is very deep, and with Florida only looking to take two more wideouts, it remains to be seen where exactly Patterson is on the pecking order. If the Gators decide that Patterson is the guy, he could very easily end up in this class. If the Gators decide that they want to go another direction then he could just as easily end up a Cardinal. Patterson will be one to keep a close eye on as things progress.
