The skinny: If Patterson would have been more willing to talk about his recruitment process, this could have been one of National Signing Day's top storylines. Instead, Patterson kept Ole Miss, LSU, Auburn, Georgia and UT waiting until the very end, when he unceremoniously announced his decision to join the Vols. Patterson instantly gives the Vols another viable target in the passing game and should be considered a threat to start right away. His body is SEC ready, and his former coach, Rion Rhoades, recently told 247Sports that Patterson was up to 214 pounds. Lightly recruited out of Northwestern High in Rock Hill, S.C., because of grade issues, Patterson caught passes from Worley for his final two high school seasons.
