2022 – WR – Lamar Patterson – St. Frances Academy, MD (FL) – 5’10 / 171

247 Rank:  National - 723 / WR - 95  / MD – 19

Commitment – Undecided

Name/Location/Date/Time of film for evaluation – Patterson Year 2 Full Season - Hudl - 11/16/19 - 6m 10sec

Physical Attributes –  Lamar has a shorter, skinnier frame.  He is overly twitchy with great feet, balance and body control and shows great burst and acceleration.  He also has great play speed.  He can be dynamic with the ball in his hands, possesses great overall athleticism and explosiveness.    

Position Specific Skills – Lamar has great initial quickness and feet along with great balance and body control, burst and acceleration.  He can run and has excellent play speed.  The burst is evident.  He also can make people miss with good lateral movement.  He must learn to drop weight to come in and out of cuts and to refine his route running ability.  Looks straight line at times.   

Overall –  Lamar is a slot type, gadget guy that has above average twitch and athleticism.  He has great burst and acceleration and good play speed.  He can be used in many ways on offense and on special teams to get the ball in his hands.  His great short area quicks, vision and ability to stick  his foot in the ground is exceptional.  I would like to know his true long speed to see if it is fast or elite.
