2017 Arizona Western TE Jeremy Patton will visit Arizona State this weekend

2017 Arizona Western TE Jeremy Patton (6-7, 235) has 24 offers and he'll visit one of the schools that has already thrown their hat in the ring...

"I'm heading up to Arizona State this weekend," Patton told JCFootball.com. 

In addition to his offer from the Sun Devils, Patton currently holds offers from Alabama, Arizona, Auburn, Louisville, Memphis, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma Stat, Syracuse and Utah among others.

A decision isn't imminent for Patton, but he's thought about when he'd like to commit to a school.

"I will most likely wait until after I take all of my official visits," Patton noted. 

As a freshman last season, Patton led the Matadors with four touchdown receptions while posting 17 catches for 316 yards.

"I'm very versatile for my size, I can play on the line , at slot and outside receiver," Patton said back in February. "I also run a 4.56 forty, so I cause some mis-matches in the secondary with my size and also my speed.

"I would defiantly say I'm more of a receiving,vertical-threat tight end, but I have no problem putting my hand in the ground and doing the dirty work."

As a prep at Lawrence Central High School in Indianapolis, Indiana, Patton was actually a much sought-after basketball prospect, but his heart lay on the gridiron, so, after some thinking and searching, he settled on Arizona Western.

"As a program, some of the things they have accomplished are amazing and they also have two tight ends that played for them that are in the NFL now and they also have one at Arizona State, so I just thought it was a good fit for me because it would give me the best chance to get better and have a chance at moving on to the next level," Patton added.

The talented tight end is on pace to finish up his two-year degree in December and he will have three years to play two following the 2016 football season.
