Indianapolis (Ind.) Lawrence North linebacker William Patterson had an a very good junior season. The 6-foot-1, 210 pound outside linebacker made 115 tackles and recovered four fumbles. He also intercepted a pass as he was named all-conference.
Patterson however might switch positions at the next level.
"Some schools say linebacker in college," Patterson said. "And some say strong safety.
"I'm interested in Illinois, Miami of Ohio, Indiana, Purdue, and Michigan.
"A few of them have offered. Illinois, Miami, Ball State, Indiana, and Bowling Green have offered me.
"My favorites are probably Illinois, Michigan, Indiana, and Purdue. But I think I'll wait till after the season before I decide."
Patterson has attended football camps at Illinois and Louisville.
