gave his verbal pledge to the Baylor
Bears over the weekend. The 6-1 227 pound linebacker is one of the best players from the state of Louisiana this year, and will look to make an immediate impact. In an earlier interview, Patin explained what was important to him.
"I'm looking how the academics are, how the student athletes graduate and what the graduation rates are, and how much playing time I'm going to be getting there," he said. "Playing time will be really important. I'm going to be looking at a lot of things."
Patin is a true middle linebacker prospect with good instincts and very well put together from a physical standpoint.
Earl was twice named 1st Team Class 1A All-State and finished his senior season with 144 tackles and five sacks.
