I was hoping we'd get both Brown and Patton, but to at least come away with 1 of the 2 potential greats is still fantastic!!!!!!

Wow, this is great news considering we might not be a P5 team soon anymore.

Wow, Patton could have been recruited as an O player. Let's not assume Baylor will not be a P5 school. The Big 12 and PAC 12 have possibilities. The Big 10 will not go quietly into the night as they poach the PAC 12. ESPN wants them as a Super Conference, too, so the Big 12, Pac12 and ACC have opportunities. This season is Important.

This article came out earlier this week. Their "good news" was just that some experts were predicting he would pick Mich.

" Patton is a three-star recruit out of Texas and is ranked 586th overall in the 2022 recruiting class. That alone won't get fans excited, but Texas has been pushing hard for the in-state prospect along with Baylor and the Longhorns seemed like they had it locked up.

But according to EJ Holland of Rivals (subscription required), Patton canceled his plans to visit Texas over the weekend, which caused Holland to flip his Futurecast pick from Texas to Michigan.

Flood of expert picks followed

Sam Webb of The Michigan Insider had a prediction for Michigan to land Patton but recently dropped his confidence level.

That was before this news broke and now, Steve Wiltfong, a national analyst for 247 sports, has projected Patton to Michigan football too, as well as a number of other experts.

At 6-foot-1, 210 pounds, Patton, who is announcing his decision on Saturday, would be huge for the Wolverines.

Not only would it be a nice win in the state of Texas, especially with Texas and Baylor both making him a priority, but he's also a former wide receiver who has great athleticism."

I don't think Patton wants to head to ice fishing country and freeze.
