Iowa State football recruiting: Oklahoma RB Darreyl Patterson receives offer


Three-star all-purpose back Darreyl Patterson from Oklahoma has received an offer from the Iowa State Cyclones.

Bob Przybylo of Sooners Illustrated tweeted earlier on Friday that the Cyclones have given Patterson an offer.

This is the seventh offer that Patterson has received, according to 247Sports. The Lawton, Oklahoma, native has received other offers from Arkansas State, Kansas State, North Texas, Tulsa, Washington State, and Wyoming.

Obviously, there’s interest in both Oklahoma and Oklahoma State, but those schools have yet to give him an offer.

Patterson checks in at 5-foot-11 and 160 pounds. He’s being recruited as both a running back and a cornerback.

Also, according to 247Sports, in his 2013 season with Lawton, Patterson racked up 488 running yards on 51 attempts and broke it through the end zone five times. He’s also caught a touchdown. Defensively, he’s recorded 65 tackles, had one pickoff, and forced two fumbles.

Of course, I don’t know how accurate these stats are as there’s at least two interceptions seen in his junior highlight package over at Hudl.

Either way, Patterson looks to be a solid threat either way he ends up. If he’s overlooked by the top Oklahoma schools, or he simply decides to go elsewhere, he’d be a great grab for the Cyclones.
