Patterson is headed to Pitt. this Fall.

Lamar Patterson, the 6'5, 220 lb small forward out of Lancaster, PA., by way of St. Benedict's Prep. in Newark, N.J., will attend the University of Pittsburgh this Fall to play basketball for the Panthers. Patterson is a perimeter player who has a high skill level, can shoot, pass and has stellar court vision and he absolutely pounds the offensive glass. He is described as an “excellent” fit for the Pitt program. He has an NBA caliber body, has excellent size, is an excellent shooter and can handle the ball. He runs the floor well and can create off the dribble. Also, he is a strong, versatile and athletic wing player with great talent, long arms and explosiveness -- Patterson can attack the rim! His rugged style of play and warrior's mentality makes him a perfect fit for what head coach Jamie Dixon does at Pitt. Patterson selected Pitt. over Arizona, Arizona State, Miami, Fla., Minnesota, Virginia Tech, Virginia, Michigan, Penn State, Rutgers, Temple and Syracuse.
