Patterson is listed as a prostyle QB....he ran a 4.63 today. I'd prefer a pass first QB with wheels anyday I think that gives him such a higher ceiling. It's going to be fun these next 2 years seeing how this plays out!
That's both of them plus McMillan, plus Harris and Jennings. If you watch both of their tapes, Patterson runs much more than Franks, and Franks ran about 3 times in his whole video.
I want both but Franks arm strength, height, and mobility makes him much more impressive from a physical standpoint. Either wouldn't start until 2017-18 anyway so developing things like throwing motion over the next 3-4 years is a lot easier than growing four inches and turning a good arm into a cannon.
These guys still have junior and senior years to improve before they even step on campus.
Outside of Drake Davis, he is the recruit I'm most excited about for 2016.
ETA: If we happen to get both, does it matter if one decides to leave after a year or so? If we don't get both of them, we will still take another instate QB for 2016.
