One of the Valley's own...Shea Patterson from Hidalgo HS was offered by Rich Rod earlier today on an unofficial visit. Upon receiving the offer Shea committed to Arizona...ohh by the way, Shea is a Freshman at Hidalgo. I guess tactic's like these are why Mack is offering earlier. I'm hoping Shea get's an offer from Mack next year, he's a great spread qb.
Cats receive one of their earliest verbal commitments ever.
The kid looks outstanding for a 14-15 ear old.
Hidalgo high in Brownsville?
Yeah they screwed that up...it's Hidalgo, Tx.
WildBill...the kid is a stud for being 15...I can only imagine what he's gonna grow into.
I was born and raised in the valley, makes me glad to hear about this.
Awesome, what town?
I'm a little gun shy about any valley prospect after Bradley Stephens.
Good ole McAllen.
He's got good feel for the position IMO. That is being very aggressive at the QB position in recruiting - too much so IMO.
Congrats to the kid though. Impressive for his age.

I agree that it's definitely an aggressive tactic and I honestly think Rich Rod may not have thought that he would commit on the spot. The kid has great potential. He was actually hurt during most of the year, if not I'm sure they would have gone undefeated throughout the regular season.
Gerry, do you think UT would ever offer a Sophomore QB, or is that position something you wait on till their junior year?
Kid looks good for a freshman, but his competition doesn't look that great.
I haven't seen tackling that poor since the WV game.
I imagine he's going to grow into something other than an Arizona commit.
I heard they bonded while listening to some Josh Groban.
