Open Offense

Wide receiver Travon Patterson (5-11, 175, 4.5) from Long Beach Poly (Calif.) already has scored four touchdowns on eight receptions for 200 yards. His team is currently 2-2.

Patterson denies a leader, but favors Oregon, Washington State, Arizona, Oregon State and Colorado. All have offered. He also has offers from Washington, Utah and Wyoming.

"Oregon is recruiting me the hardest," Patterson said. "They open up their offense and use four wideouts all the time. They pass the ball a lot and as a wide receiver I like that they always have a really good offense. They've had some pretty good wins and even gave USC a good game."

Patterson has scheduled an official visit to Oregon for October 15. He'll be visiting Arizona on January 13. "I like the new coaches at Arizona and what they are trying to do," Patterson said. "They are improving and I think there will be a good opportunity for me to come in and make an impact as a freshman.

"But I also feel like I could go in and make an impact at Washington State. They have a good offense and will be graduating like four wide receivers this year.

"I'm having a pretty good season and I think I'll get even more offers," he said. "I'd like to go through the whole process and see what happens. I'm still really open and want to take my time."

He reports a 2.8 GPA/18 ACT/1340 SAT.
