4-Star DE/OLB Natrez Patrick Commits to UGA

Defensive end/outside linebacker Natrez Patrick committed to the Georgia Bulldogs this evening at halftime of his spring game in Atlanta. Patrick is the 8th verbal commitment for the class of 2015.

Although Patrick plays defensive end in high school, he will likely line up at outside linebacker in Jeremy Pruitt’s 3-4 defense.

“Coach (Pruitt) talked to me about playing the outside linebacker position,” Patrick told UGASports.com. “Probably ‘Jack’ because he rushes more. Like on third down, he will rush the passer and come off the edge so probably the ‘Jack’ position.

“I’m comfortable with both defensive end and outside linebacker. I feel like I am a versatile guy so I don’t mind doing either one.”

Patrick (6-3, 243) plays for Mays High School in Atlanta. He also had offers from several top schools, including Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Louisville, Ole Miss, Notre Dame, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia Tech and Wisconsin.

Rivals.com rates Natrez Patrick as a 4-star recruit, the No. 3 weakside defensive end, and No. 59 overall in the Rivals100 2015. 247Sports also rates him 4-stars, the No. 8 weakside defensive end, and No. 89 in the Top247.

Natrez Patrick is one of the handful of UGA football recruits that received a hand-drawn, autographed portrait.
