“They said to just enjoy the rest of my summer visits because I’m getting closer to the end now,” Patterson said. “Do what I feel is right for me.

“I feel like I fit really well in the scheme they run defensively. Also, I feel like I have a really close relationship with Coach Golding. I feel like me and him really mesh together. And then also I like Coach Lupoi and Coach Saban a lot.”

Patterson has two more unofficial visits currently scheduled - Ohio State on Wednesday and another visit to Alabama before the end of the month - and expects to make his decision before the start of football season.

According to BamaOnline, Patterson will only take an official visit to the school he commits to.
