LSU nabbed a commitment from Winnfield DE Michael Patterson this morning— Sonny Shipp (@Sonny247) March 28, 2012
Sonny Shipp tweeted just minutes ago that Patterson gave his pledge. To be honest, I know very little about this kid. Only sports 3 offers to date, but it's early in the process, so that doesn't worry me much. Pretty good size at 6'3, 230. 2-minute highlight take: moves all over the DL, even playing standing up at times. Decent burst. Plays with good strength at the point of attack. Doesn't stand out as being overly explosive/athletic (though he's not a plodder). Plays too high. Pretty good read n' react type of DE... diagnoses plays really quickly and is almost always in position to make the tackle. Staff must really like this kid considering all the big fish still in play, especially on the DL.
