"He's a pretty good coach from what I've heard," Patterson said. "But I don't know if it's going to change things recruiting-wise. As of now, things are still the same."
Patterson said Kentucky is his leader. He said he liked "everything" about Kentucky. "They're easy to get along with," Patterson said.
Though Kentucky sits atop Patterson's list at the moment, the three-star defensive end said he wouldn't make a decision until he's had a chance to get to know Louisville coach Charlie Strong. Patterson said he doesn't know much about Strong other than he was "coming from Florida."
"I'll probably take a visit there [Louisville] to talk to him and see what he's like before I do anything," Patterson said.
Patterson said his leg injury was coming along "good" and he's currently doing rehab.
