SEC schools in pursuit of Petal OL Javon Patterson

Posted by JAMES JONES on February 20, 2014 

Petal junior offensive lineman Javon Patterson has seven offers, mostly from SEC schools.

Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Southern Miss, Alabama, Auburn  all have offered the 6-foot-4, 320-pound guard.

This weekend, he may attend Auburn's junior Day. He visited the Plains twice last year.

"It's a great program," Patterson told "Coach Gus Malzahn has turned the program around and they are building a great and winning program. The way the players fought, that stood out to me during my visits.

"They fought hard and then of course the amazing win over 'Bama. The coaches are always hyped up and it's a great program to be around. ''
