K-State Signee: Chris Patterson

Chris Patterson has spent time at both Northeast Oklahoma A&M and Joliet Junior College. The lightning quick linebacker prospect can easily run a 4.5-40 yard dash and certainly has a great build and all the tools to terrorize quarterbacks from his outside position. Patterson was a Scout.com four-star prospect coming out of his senior year at Hubbard High School in Chicago, Illinois.

The 6-3, 215-pound defender played first for NEO and in his only season accounted for 105 tackles, seven pass break-ups, three interceptions and one fumble recovery.

Patterson went on to play his sophomore season at Joliet Junior College where he racked up another 34 tackles including two sacks. He was rewarded with Second Team All-Conference and All-Region honors.

Coach Tom Minnick shared some thoughts about Patterson, "He's a kid who has great athletic ability. He can run sideline-to-sideline and make plays. I only had him one year. He transferred here from Northeast Oklahoma, and he played really well for me. He played an outside backer. He's just a great athlete and can play a couple different positions."
