Wilmington (Dela.) St. Elizabeth wide receiver Andre Patton has been to Rutgers once before and he has another trip to the Big East school scheduled.
Patton, a 6-foot-3, 185-pound prospect from the Class of 2013, said he has greatly improved his speed this season. In fact, he claims to have run the 40-yard dash in 4.4 seconds. That length and that speed makes him an attractive prospect, especially as a deep threat.
That helps explain his offer from Rutgers, which he has had for a while.

"I'm supposed to be going up to Rutgers this weekend," Patton said on Tuesday. "I've been up there before. I've talked to them on Facebook but I don't know too much about them. I still want to learn more about them."
The only other school Patton has visited to date is Delaware. Several other schools are showing interest.
Next spring Patton will probably be visiting a few other schools, depending on how high their level of interest is.
St. Elizabeth posted a 6-3 record this year but that mark wasn't good enough to get them into the playoffs.
