Patterson commits to Oregon

Pittsburg RB/DB Avery Patterson, ranked No. 49 overall in the Rivals.com California Preseason Top 100 players to watch, has orally committed to Oregon, according to Rivals.com.

Patterson might be one of the fastest players in the East Bay. Rivals lists his 40 time at 4.33 seconds. He’ll be a cornerback at Oregon but this year he’ll see plenty of playing time at running back for coach Victor Galli and the Pirates.
