Patterson, La., wide receiver Daylon Charlot quickly caught the attention of on-lookers in 2012 as well as that of college coaches.
At 6-foot, 180-pounds Charlot put up strong numbers and earned all-district honors as a sophomore, and in the process picked up offers from Arizona State and Mississippi State with strong interest from Alabama and LSU.
This summer he has not been able to attend camps due to a foot problem but now he is healthy and ready to hit the road.
"I'm going to the Alabama camp and LSU camp in July and I'll probably visit Ole Miss too," Charlot said.
When it comes to the recruiting process he is taking it all in and enjoying the process.
"To me the best part of it is the big schools coming at you because ever since I was a little kid I thought it was hard to go to college," Charlot said.
As he enters his junior season he does not have to worry about whether or not college is a possibility. That question has already been answered. However, that does not mean he is not hard at work. Charlot continues to work. He has eyes for a state championship, and on a personal level he also has a few goals he would like to achieve.
"I want to get like 30 touchdowns and 2,000 yards," Charlot said. "I have a chart in my locker and all the yards I get I subtract them from 2,000 yards."
Those numbers are challenging but Charlot has never been daunted by a challenge and he has already shown he achieve on a high level.
