Patterson: Getting tough to decide 

December, 12, 2011
The last time juco wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson (Rock Hill, S.C./Hutchinson, Kan., CC) was on the University of Georgia campus, A.J. Green was wowing NFL scouts during his pro day. The Bulldogs are hoping Patterson, another 6-foot-4 wideout from South Carolina, decides to come in and make a big impact in Athens. He definitely has done that so far in college.

Last year, Patterson had 52 catches for 908 yards and nine touchdowns, while returning 21 total kickoffs and punts for 645 yards and three touchdowns for the Dragons. He followed it up this year with 32 rushes for 379 yards and six touchdowns, 61 catches for 924 yards and 15 touchdowns, and 10 kickoff returns for 482 yards and three touchdowns. Double digit offers came in, from prominent programs like like Arkansas, Auburn, Baylor, Georgia and Tennessee.

The Volunteers and Bulldogs have been in the mix the longest, but while Tennessee has racked up four commitments in Drae Bowles, Alton Howard, Keithon Redding, and Jason Croom, Georgia has only one wide receiver currently committed in Blake Tibbs. Tibbs was on campus with Patterson this weekend, with the juco wideout having good thing to say about his latest official visit.
