Don'yeh Patterson plans to keep taking the recruiting process slowly but two teams have emerged as favorites and the three-star wide receiver is planning to schedule official visits soon.
The Harbor City (Calif.) Narbonne standout hasn't booked anything yet but Utah and Colorado State are expected to get trips sometime this fall - and those two teams are considered the frontrunners early in his recruitment.
"It's pretty much the same thing but I'm going to schedule a few trips soon," Patterson said. "I'm definitely going to Colorado State and Utah."
Arizona, Columbia, Idaho, New Mexico State and San Jose State have also offered Patterson, who transferred to Narbonne from Compton Dominguez for his senior season, but Utah and Colorado State have talked more with him and that's why they stand out.
The 6-foot-2, 192-pound prospect said he has been involved more with those coaching staffs and that's why Colorado State and Utah stand out most at this point.
"I communicate with the coaches really well at both schools and they're showing the most interest right now," Patterson said.
No commitment is expected soon. Patterson said he wants to take his time through his senior season to see if others get involved in his recruitment. Those two programs could have the lead at this point but the Narbonne wide receiver doesn't want to rush anything.
"I kind of want to see what happens through my senior year," Patterson said.
