Jacques Patrick (Orlando, Fla./Timber Creek) is now up to 33 scholarship offers. His latest ones are from North Carolina, USF and Wisconsin. This is a big back that will be one of the top prospects in Florida next season. Right now, two in-state schools are his favorites.
“I am open but I would say that FSU and Florida are my top schools at this point,” Patrick said. “Florida State was my first offer. I talk with coach Fisher a lot and he seems like a great guy. I have been there a few times now and just really like that program a lot.
“Florida is appealing as well. They love to run downhill and I am a downhill runner. I like that offense. Plus, a degree there in this state can go a long way.”
Patrick looks to have a busy summer. He plans on making unofficial visits to Michigan, Michigan State, Notre Dame and Ohio State.
“I like those teams,” Patrick said. “I am talking with Urban Meyer from Ohio State a lot.”
