"It was nice there. My host was Jeremiah Johnson, a running back. Everyone treated me right. It was a good experience and good facilities. All the coaches treated me well and showed me love. They are cool coaches," Patterson said. "The stands were packed at the game -- it was loud and a lot of excitement came from the fans.
"It's a real college town there. It was big change for me, coming from the Los Angeles area, to go to a small place like that. I was looking at it and I would probably just have to get used to it, but it could be a perfect fit. I mean, I just go and play my game and get my education; you know just do my own thing. There's just a lot more to do around here outside of school than there.
"I may want to stay close to home, but at the same time maybe I want to get a little farther away. I don't really know for sure," he explained.
His current top five are Oregon and Washington State, Arizona, Oregon State and Colorado (all offered). "I am still open right now. I have no leader. I will make my official visits then decide."
Patterson's next official visit is set for Oct. 29 at Oregon State. "I have attended a game and they do a lot of passing. They are just great at passing the ball. They are one of the leading teams for passing in the nation," he said.
He also mentioned that he still likes USC and UCLA even though neither have offered. "I talked to both of them this past week," he said. "SC wanted to see my game films and they said if those were good enough they will offer.
"UCLA has been liking me a lot. I believe they are waiting on my first semester grades before offering.
"If those schools offered they would definitely be one of my top choices. They are pretty close to home," Patterson explained.
He named important factors in choosing a school as "probably the atmosphere, the education and playing time. I want to play as a true freshman."
Patterson has 15 catches for almost 500 yards and eight touchdowns for 5-2 Poly. The team will travel to Compton to play for the league championship on Oct. 29.
2.6 GPA/18 ACT/1340 SAT--Nov. 5 retake--"I just want to see if I can get a better score on the SAT," he said.
