ToJo reports that his decision to join the maroon and white was an easy one to make.
"They are recruiting me as a running back," said Patterson. "I have always wanted to play ball at Mississippi State, so I decided to go ahead and commit."
Being close to home was a big factor for Patterson and his family. ToJo's mother, Allison, believes her son's decision to attend Mississippi State is a good one.
"It was his decision to go to Mississippi State," said Allison. "That's all I heard around the house was Mississippi State. It's where he wanted to go and it's not too far from home."
Patterson will attend Mississippi State's Junior Day this Saturday.
