"I make a lot of big plays, but I can also go across the middle," Patrick said.
Patrick said Utah coaches watched him catch eight passes for 199 yards and a touchdown against Fullerton and then attended a Griffins practice in late spring*. Patrick finished the 2013 season with 964 yards and eight touchdowns (see tape here), and was named to all-conference teams for both football and basketball.
Patrick says he hasn't ruled out playing basketball at the U. if they'd take him. As a small forward last year he averaged 9.8 points and 5.7 rebounds per game and shot 65.5 percent from the field, according to the California Community College Athletic Association website.
He'll have two years to play two, he says, and he's still weighing possible majors.
His first impression of Salt Lake is a positive one:
"I love it," he said. "It feels like home here."
