Hartselle Tigers (15-0) 5-A State Champ
I like that you bring up Jordan Matthews. He's a talented kid who will grade out high in this receiver class if he declares early... one of my underrated underclassman in my thread prior to the season. Another local kid that I was able to watch on occasion in high school when he played here for Madison Academy. Tavon Austin is the only receiver who can do what Patterson can do with the ball in his hands, except Patterson is 6" taller and has 30 pounds on Austin. I certainly agree that Patterson is a kid who has the ability to end up the best in this class, or struggle to adjust to the NFL. However, the potential for struggling to adjust at the next level applies to all of 'em.... the potential to be the best in the class doesn't apply to all of 'em.
