DL Kendall Patterson (6-2 281) of Hyattesville, MD has added several offers to his sheet but is still waiting on both Clemson and USC to extend him an offer. Duke, Maryland, Wake Forest, NC State, Wisconsin, Michigan State, Ohio, Central Florida, Marshall, and Buffalo have all offered.
"I still talk to Clemson through emails and have talked to Coach (Billy) Napier," he said. "We have not set up a visit yet but he told me he wants me to come. I still need to talk to Coach (Shawn) Elliott at South Carolina to visit their school." He says he likes the Gamecocks. "I really like the area," said Patterson. "Plus, they play fast. I really like the speed of the game they play. That's how I like to play."
Patterson will be visiting Tennessee soon and will camp at Florida later this month.
He says an offer from either USC or Clemson could mean a commit. "I still want to talk to the academic advisors at both schools to see how they handle their athletes," he said. "If everything seems ok, I think I could commit." He does not have any favorites and says he is "wide open".
