The loaded Dallas (Texas) Skyline program is reloading for the 2010 class and there already looks to be several highly recruited prospects emerging on the radars of big-name programs across the country. One of those national recruits is linebacker Dominique Patterson. He already held one offer from Texas A&M and he recently picked up another.
"I got an offer from Iowa," Patterson said. "Coach said he had it in his office. I haven't looked at it yet. I got something in the mail to my mother saying that they offered me. My momma told me that she got the paper."
Patterson knows a little bit about the Big Ten program but as with all his offers he hopes to learn more.
"They had a good football season this year and everything," he said. "As [schools] come, I start to look into their values and learn more about them."
The Dallas Skyline halls have been a revolving door of big-name coaches coming through and Patterson has been one of their main targets.
"I'm pretty excited to see a lot of this attention," he said. "LSU was saying a lot of good things about me. I got to talk to Bob Stoops when he came through too. I didn't get to say much just kind of meet and greet him."
Patterson has also been invited to a number of major junior days. He has already attended the Texas A&M junior day and this weekend he will add LSU to that list.
"Me and (teammate) Corey [Nelson] are going down to LSU," he said. "He said he definitely wants to go so me, him, and (teammate) Mike [Davis] are going down this weekend."
