"I have always wanted to go since I was a little kid," said Patterson. "This season they showed they can compete because Ohio State was down before. Now, they are back on top and they are pulling in a great class with some great players in Ohio."
Before his commitment, Patterson had already visited Boston College and Miami. He then committed to Ohio State and cancelled his Maryland visit but kept his Florida trip. So why is this highly regarded 4-star recruit visiting the Gators?
"I still want to take some trips even though I am committed to Ohio State. But for me to change my mind I would really have to be persuaded. It has to be a better situation than at Ohio State. One thing I know about Florida, they need tackles. I may also take a fifth trip, maybe to Tennessee."
