Jacques Patrick (Orlando, Fla./Timber Creek) picked scholarship offer No. 8 yesterday and this was a big one for this 2015 running back prospect.

"LSU offered yesterday," Patrick said. "I have been talking with them but I was not expecting them to offer me right now. This is a prestigious program with a very good history of backs. They don't wear them down yet those guys still get 20 carries a game. This is one I will take into consideration very strongly."

Patrick hasn't been to Baton Rouge and LSU yet. But he plans on making a trip to see the Tigers this fall.

"I will go up there during an off-week and see them," Patrick said. "I am excited to check out a game."

Patrick also said that he will make unofficial visits next week to see both Alabama and Georgia.

"I will visit Georgia and I haven't decided yet whether I will camp at Alabama," Patrick said. "But I will at least check them out."

Patrick,6-foot-1 and 210-pounds , now has offers from LSU, Florida State, Florida, Auburn, Arizona, Miami, Vanderbilt and UCF.
