There's never a running back shortage in the Sunshine State nor is it ever too early to look ahead. A 2015 running back prospect that's already stirring up state and national interest is Jacques Patrick (Orlando, Fla./Timber Creek).
"Arizona and Vandy both offered me last night," Patrick said. "My goal my freshman season was to rush for over 1,000 yards. I rushed for over 1,200 and scored eight touchdowns. I guess the coaches all liked what they saw. I wasn't expecting any of this but I am very proud of it."
Patrick, 6-foot-1 and 210-pounds, will camp at Alabama on July 16th and then visit or camp at some other schools.
"When I leave Alabama I want to drive down and see Auburn on the [July] 17th," Patrick said. "Then I want to check out Georgia. I plan on camping at Florida State and Florida next month as well. And I know I will visit Miami very soon."
