Patterson's Plans Include NC State

Jesup (GA) Wayne County defensive tackle Jeremy Patterson plans to visit NC State this summer.

Jeremy Patterson is working on putting together a summer schedule and his plans will most likely include NC State.

NC State, Clemson, Florida and Florida State are the schools Patterson plans to visit this summer and the Wolfpack's coaches would love to have the opportunity to host him on an unofficial visit.

At 6-4 and 284-pounds Patterson is one of the Southeast's top defensive tackle prospects but he could also ultimately play on the offensive line.

Each of those schools have offered so Patterson seems to be focusing most of his attention on schools that have identified him as one of their top targets..

He has already been to Florida State and Clemson so return trips are likely a sign that those initial visits went very well.

"Florida State's a real good place. One of my friends goes there so I know a lot about it. Clemson was pretty good too. There's lots of places to go down there," he said.

Patterson did say that his summer plans should not be interpreted as a list of favorites. He has six offers and is expecting more and does not want to eliminate any potential future options by cutting his list down yet.

For now he is planning to take several official visits before he makes his decision. If his visits go well this summer he could visit some of the same schools officially later in the year or sometime before signing day.

The Jesup (GA) Wayne County recruit has never been to NC State but he has followed the program over the years.

"They're a pretty good program. I like the team, the Wolfpack. They look pretty good on TV. My friend goes there and he tells me a lot about it. T.Y. McGill, me and him are pretty tight. I like Coach Nielsen too. He's a pretty good man. He'll keep it real with you."

Patterson has been ranked a three-star prospect and the No. 19 offensive guard in the nation by
