Offers are mounting for Hyattsville (Md.) DeMatha defensive tackle Kendall Patterson. The 6-foot-2, 272-pounder picked up two offers after a trio of camps this past weekend.
"I went to North Carolina, Wake Forest and just finished up at NC State," he said. "Wake Forest and NC State offered me after their camps.
"I really like them. I have family in North Carolina and they are both high on my list."
Patterson went further about the offers.
"I have some friends that go to Wake Forest. They've been telling me great things about it and we've got a close connection, I have a great connection with the coaches too. They are at the top of my list.
"I like NC State as well. I just have to build that connection with the coaches there. I haven't built it yet."
Patterson clearly appears to have Wake Forest high on his list right now.
"I don't want to say anyone else is up there, but Wake Forest is high on my list," he stated. "I plan on making more visits in the near future. Right now I'm just enjoying the recruiting process."
In the meantime, how was the North Carolina trip?
"North Carolina went well," he said. "They just said they're going to keep in touch and contact me in the next few days. I got to talk to Coach Davis one-on-one with my mom and he said he really liked me, they just want to see more film."
While he plans to take more visits, the DeMatha lineman claims nothing else is planned at this point in time.
"I'm not sure, but I want to go to Florida's camp actually just to see how I do against the competition down there. I haven't planned anything yet."
