San Antonio (TX) Christian tight end Nick Patterson committed to Princeton on Wednesday evening, National Signing Day. While he never publicly decommitted from Michigan, rumors had been swirling for months that he would not end up playing in Ann Arbor.
I had acknowledged this development for a while, but I just wanted to post the closure of his recruitment. When he committed back in September of 2018 (LINK), I wasn’t giving out TTB Ratings for 2020 class members yet. But when I got around to it in May of 2019, I gave him a 49 (LINK).
