Henry County wide receiver Jamal Patterson took a weekend off from visiting one of his many college football suitors.
But that doesn't mean the four-star pass-catcher was sitting at home. Instead, Patterson was across the country in Oregon competing in the Nike 7-on-7 camp.
Patterson's trip out west was quite successful.
"In the championship game I had an interception on defense," Patterson told GAVSV.com. "On offense I had one touchdown and 129 yards receiving but we lost."
Despite falling in the championship game, Patterson was able to leave with some bragging rights: the camp's top honor.
"I was named MVP," Patterson said. "I split MVP honors with Aaron Murray. He's the truth."
Patterson's favorable opinion of the five-star quarterback is shared by many college coaches throughout the country. Murray boasts an impressive list of offers but has already given Georgia a verbal commitment.
UGA also happens to be a program that is actively recruiting Patterson.
So, did the two get to talk about what life would be like in Athens together?
"We did talk recruiting," Patterson said. "He was just telling me how nice it would be to play together. I would love to play anywhere with him. I know that he is redshirting, though, and I don't plan on doing that."
