Three-star 2020 tight end Nick Patterson commits to Michigan

Michigan keeps it in the family with their latest addition to the growing 2020 class.

Michigan got its second commitment of the night, this time in the 2020 class. Three-star tight end Nick Patterson announced his commitment in a story for 247Sports.

Nick’s last name should be familiar, as he is the younger brother of Michigan starting quarterback Shea Patterson. Earlier this summer, Shea got to surprise his brother by telling him he had an offer from the Wolverines. After that, it was tough for any other school to overcome what Michigan brought to the table.

The younger Patterson was on campus this weekend to see his brother lead the Wolverines in a 49-7 victory. He committed during a meeting with Jim Harbaugh.

The 6-foot-3, 215-pound athlete is ranked as the 20th-best tight end in the 2020 class, and 660th overall.

Playing for San Antonio Christian in Texas, Patterson lines up at tight end, wide receiver, or h-back on offense, and defensive end on defense.

Patterson said he is going to be recruiting hard for his fellow 2020 class members to join Michigan. That attitude will be excellent for the class, especially since he’s committed so early.

Michigan’s 2020 class now contains four members. Patterson joins four-stars Kalil Branham and Denver Warren, and three-star Andre Seldon. Right now, it’s ranked 13th in the country, but there is plenty of time to go before that signing day.

That may not be all for Michigan commitments in the near future. Look out for some more good news coming as soon as tomorrow!
