Andre Patton, Delaware's best wide receiver in the 2013 class, has named his top three. In no particular order, West Virginia, Rutgers and Purdue are at the top of Patton's list.
"I've been following West Virginia for a while now," said the 6-foot-4, 193-pound Patton. "They throw like 90% of the time and I think I'd fit in really well with that offense. I went to a camp there over the summer and I've been there a few times. I liked the environment and everything about it. I played on the field during the camp and I really liked the facilities.
"I like that Rutgers is not too far but still not close to home," he said. "Even if I went there I'm still getting away from home and I'd have a good chance to play early. I've been to Rutgers a lot and I've seen the campus and everything.

"The last Purdue game I watched I liked their wide receivers but I'm not going to be to sure about them until I take my visit after the season."
A few other schools still have a chance to get into the mix for the wide receiver from Wilmington (Del.) St. Elizabeth.
"I'm in contact with the Iowa coaches a lot and I'm trying to figure out if I can take a visit out there but I haven't really had the chance to watch them," explained Patton. "I'm also still in contact with the Connecticut coaches over Facebook and Twitter."
When can we expect Patton to make his decision?
"I was thinking about making my decision after this football season but I may just wait until signing day," he said. "I am taking an official visit to Rutgers in early December."
The St. Elizabeth football team is 4-3 and has a pretty good chance of making the playoffs.
