Patterson hasn't visited any other schools this spring and doesn't have immediate plans to do so. Though Patterson currently holds offers from Louisville, Kentucky and Purdue, the four-star prospect isn't ready to play favorites.
"I'm a Louisville fan but I don't have a leader right now," Patterson said. "I just wore the sweatshirt because I support my team."
When it comes time to make a college decision, don't expect Patterson to stray too far away from home. That could mean an intense recruiting battle between hometown Louisville and in-state rival Kentucky, where several of his former Central High teammates currently attend.
"It will be a big (factor) because I want to stay close to my mom," said Patterson. "She tells me to go where I'll be happy and can play."
Patterson isn't in a rush to make a decision. He said he plans to take some official visits next fall before making his choice. "I'm probably going to hold out until signing day," Patterson said.
