Patrick ready for 'crazy' atmosphere
By Corey Dowlar
As far as 2015 recruits go, there might not be one with a more impressive offer list than Jacques Patrick (Orlando, Fla./East River).
Listed as an athlete, Patrick's skills at running back have helped him garner offers from Alabama, Arizona, Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, LSU, Miami, Tennessee, UCF, USC and Vanderbilt. And Saturday he will be in Tallahassee to see the Seminoles and Gators line up against each other in a top-10 matchup.
"I'm really just looking forward to seeing a good game and watch how both teams run the ball," he said.
With that kind of offer list, it is understood that Patrick has been around some of college football's greatest atmospheres. Later this week, he's expecting one of the best.
"It will be crazy and very loud," he said.
Once inside Doak Campbell Stadium, Patrick will approach the game from a neutral perspective. Though he doesn't care who wins, he wouldn't be surprised to see the visitors escape with a victory against their archrivals.
"I think it will be a real tight game, but UF may pull it off," he said. "I'm not going for either team."
Patrick's most recent offer was Clemson, as the Tigers offered last Monday.
