The Iowa Hawkeyes got a nice victory on the road over the Purdue Boilermakers on Saturday. They finished up the day by extending an offer to Quincy Patterson of Eric Solorio Academy in Illinois.
"This offer means a lot," he admitted. "Iowa was the first school to come and see me. They've always been on my radar and considering the tradition of winning and doing great things with their program shows a lot."
Patterson holds offers from Illinois, Indiana, Northwestern, Penn State, Syracuse, Mississippi State, and New Mexico. Taking an early look at him, he's a big kid at 6'4" and 220 pounds and he's an impressive athlete to go along with it.
Head man Kirk Ferentz and Coach Greg Davis were the coaches to extend the offer to Patterson. Davis does require that he see a QB throw live before offering and Iowa is in early.
Patterson was in Iowa City for a practice about 3 months ago and does plan on visiting again soon. "I plan on visiting this Saturday for the Wisconsin game," he told Scout on Sunday night.
Patterson sounds very intrigued by the Iowa offer, I would not be surprised to see the Hawkeyes in this one until the end.
Patterson added that he doesn't have any real favorites at this point and is just focusing on his junior season right now.
"I will more than likely make that decision over the summer," he said when asked when he'd be making his final choice.
