Jacques Patrick's Midwest Swing: The Final Countdown
Jacques Patrick, one of the nation's top 2015 prospects is a running back with over 40 scholarship offers before the start of his junior year at Timber Creek High School in Orlando, Florida. Patrick is on the road with a number of his teammates, checking out schools all over the midwest and Eleven Warriors is taking you along for the ride as Patrick shares with us his travels. After starting his tour at Northwestern and Chicago, Patrick went to Columbus to check out Ohio State. Today, he checks in following his stops at Michigan State and Michigan as he prepares to go back home to Florida tomorrow.
Hello again Eleven Warriors readers!
I wanted to start this final journal by just saying thanks for being interested in me and my recruitment, it means a lot to me. I know this is a Buckeye website and if I don't end up at Ohio State down the road, I still feel like it's pretty cool you guys care about my visits and whatever. There's sometimes when all this attention is a bit of a mixed blessing, but for the most part I love it. I know that everything I say and do is being watched by so many people, and that keeps me focused on handling things the right way.
So thanks again for being interested. Rather than writing the full entry, we did the final real "piece" of this journal in a video from today's Sound Mind/Sound Body camp in Detroit. So I hope you like it! I spent the day talking to coaches, mostly from Ohio State and Michigan, and watching my brother Jovante camp. I'm so happy because today he got his first offer, Kent State offered him and he deserves it. Hopefully it's the start of some big things for him. He's a 2014 wide receiver and doesn't get the attention he deserves in my opinion.
Anyway, I'm going to let the video do the talking now and go out with the guys from the camp and get ready to head back to Florida tomorrow afternoon. Thanks for following me and I look forward to the Penn State game in Columbus this fall!
