Henry County's Patterson Visiting Auburn

Star wide receiver Jamal Patterson is checking out the Tigers' campus this weekend.

The whirlwind tour for Jamal Patterson continues.

Two weeks after a trip across the country to visit the Stanford University campus, the Henry County star wide receiver is set to take in a campus much close to home. The four-star prospect is looking forward to the impending trip.

"I am headed to Auburn this weekend," Patterson told GAVSV.com.

Despite the fact that the Tigers are only two hours from the 6-2, 200-pounder's home, Patterson isn't familiar with the campus.

"I have never been there," Pattterson admitted. "I am excited to finally see it."

As one of the elite offensive prospects in the entire country, Patterson has his choice of collegiate programs.

Working in Auburn's favor, however, is their recent change in offensive philosophy with the hiring of a new offensive coordinator.

"I know they are switching to the spread, Patterson said. "I am interested in that."

As mentioned, the McDonough native recently ventured to the West Coast to visit the Cardinal. One may think that distance may factor into Patterson's eventual decision but that isn't the case.

"It's nice that Auburn is only two hours away," Patterson said. "But distance from home won't be a problem wherever I am."
