Uncommitted countdown: Best 30 SEC targets available- No. 23 OL Javon Patterson


SDS will count down the 30 biggest SEC targets still available around the country–these are the players SDS thinks realistically will end up signing with SEC schools. Obviously there are players with SEC offers out west and up north, but if it looks like they aren’t seriously considering the SEC, we didn’t include them in this series.

Here’s a day-by-day ‘month of June’ look at the top 30 realistic SEC targets left in the country, ranking them from No. 30 down to No. 1 on June 30th.

No. 23 – Javon Patterson, OL, Petal (Miss.), 6-4/290

SEC OFFERS: Alabama, Auburn, Florida, LSU, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Tennessee.
NAT. RANKING: No. 53 overall prospect in America.
NAT. POS. RANKING: No. 2 offensive guard in America.
THE SKINNY: Patterson named a top five of all SEC schools on May 16–Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Mississippi State and Ole Miss. No huge surprises there at all for one of the nation’s top offensive guards. Patterson is coming off of a visit to Big Cat Weekend at Auburn, and that made quite an impression on many big prospects. Keep an eye on the Ole Miss-Auburn battle for Patterson. This could be a good one.
SDS PREDICTION: Auburn by a hair over Ole Miss, but that could switch at any time.

Editor’s note: For this particular series, Saturday Down South’s order for ‘likely SEC recruits’ is determined using the 247Sports.com industry composite ranking (as of June 1st ranking).

  • I am trying not laugh, but you said the other day that Drew Richmond was going to pick Tenn over Ole Miss and now your saying that Patterson is going to pick Auburn over Ole Miss. Not going to happen at all. Patterson is pertty much an Ole Miss lock. He just came to Oxford on an visit to work out. He visits Ole Miss a lot. I think you are the only one that really thinks he is going to Auburn. I expect both Richmond and Patterson to end up at Ole Miss because they have become good friends and both really like Ole Miss. I can see were you might think Richmond might go to Tenn, but he is in Ole Miss’ back yard, but Patterson is Ole Miss all the way.
