Re: Kentucky lands Patrick Patterson
The tide really turned for UK during the last seven days. After Gillispie spoke at Patterson's team banquet last month, things began to heat up considerably. For some reason, Patterson had not hosted his maximum number of "home visits" by schools this spring. As a result, Gillispie was allowed to bring two of his assistants to the Patterson home during UK's visit there last week. Apparently, the triad of coaches were very impressive to Patrick's mom and the trip apparently sealed the deal.
I have to admit, I lost quite a bit of hope on Monday after Jai Lucas signed with the Gators. I figured his close friendship with Patterson would be the tipping point.
