2013 WR Patton to visit Rutgers

Wilmington (Del.) St. Elizabeth wide receiver Andre Patton has an offer from Rutgers and he will be visiting the Big East school within the next week.

At 6-foot-3 and 185-pounds, Patton is one of the top junior wide receivers on the east coast.

Since the contact period opened up at the beginning of this month Patton has been receiving a ton of interest from colleges. He hasn't had much phone contact with schools yet but letters and communication online has increased dramatically.

Alabama, Clemson, Penn State, Nebraska, Vanderbilt, Oregon, Florida and Connecticut are just some of the schools keeping an eye on Patton.

On Saturday, Patton was at the Penn State-Temple game, a narrow victory for the Lions.

"I'm going to the Rutgers game next weekend," Patton said over the weekend, referring to the Knights' game against Ohio.

"I just want to check them out. I wouldn't say yes or no to them yet. I'm just keeping my options open."

In just one game this year Patton has 175 receiving yards with two touchdown catches and one kickoff return for a touchdown.
