On a day where Harry Heistand left his role as Notre Dame’s offensive line coach for the same position in the NFL with the Chicago Bears, the Fighting Irish have still maintained recruiting interest upfront.
An example of this took place on Wednesday when Mission Viejo (Mission Viejo, CA) offensive tackle Jarrett Patterson expressed interest in traveling to South Bend later this month.
“I do plan on taking a visit,” said the 2018 prospect. “Either the 20th or the 27th.”
Patterson had most recently made a pair of official visits to Michigan and UCLA during early December following a decommitment from Arizona State.
The senior shared impressions of Notre Dame after Tuesday’s scholarship offer.
“I really like Notre Dame,” he said. “Talk about a place where tradition goes on forever. Top of the line academics and always great football. Incredible fan base too. Never an empty seat in that stadium.”
Patterson originally made a verbal committed to ASU this past August and landed an offer from the Sun Devils during the Spring.
Since first receiving an offer from Fresno State nearly a year ago, Nevada, Hawaii, UConn, Washington State, San Jose State, UNLV, Iowa State, Colorado State, UCF, Virginia, Utah State, Boise State, Duke, San Diego State, Cal, TCU, Wisconsin, Indiana, Nebraska, the Bruins and the Wolverines have all extended offers of their own.
