Patterson was asked the words “The Movement” have come to mean to him.
“It means hang banners and win championships,” Patterson said.
Though Patterson is rated fourth of the five players in the Class, checking in at 131 in Rivals.com’s Top 150 rankings for the class, his unique skill set could make him the piece of the puzzle that makes that possible. The 6-foot-3, 195-pounder has a 6-10 wingspan and unlike most top prospects, is better known for his abilities as a defender than for his offensive skills.
With signing day on the horizon, we’ll be using the next couple of weeks to take a photographic look at four of Indiana’s five current 2012 recruits. Check out 18 photos by Jamie Owens of Broad Ripple senior guard Ron Patterson in the embedded photo gallery after the jump.
Broad Ripple senior guard Ron Patterson is one of four Indiana commitments (along with Collin Hartman, Devin Davis and Yogi Ferrell) playing in the 2011 Metropolitan Indianapolis Fall League. The league takes place on Sunday nights from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Noblesville Boys & Girls Club.
Inside the Hall was in attendance for the league’s opening night and we’ve compiled over two minutes of Patterson video which is available in the embedded media player below. (Note: You can expand the video to full screen by using the arrows in the bottom right hand corner of the player.)
Inside the Hall had a chance to catch up with 2012 IU commitment Ron Patterson on Monday evening as the senior guard begins his final high school season at Broad Ripple.
Here are some notes and quotes from our conversation:
— July’s impact: After making the move from Indiana Elite Team Indiana to Indiana Elite One after the spring portion of the AAU schedule, Patterson played in the adidas Invitational and adidas College Coaches Classic in early July and used the rest of the summer to work on his game. “I just felt like I needed to work on my game other than playing (in AAU),” he said of the decision to skip the second July evaluation period. “I’ve just been doing it off God given talent, I’ve never really worked (on my game). I think it was beneficial because I’d already committed and I wasn’t really hurting or losing anything.”
— Recent trip to Bloomington: While the visits of Luke Fischer and D’Angelo Russell made headlines over the weekend, Patterson confirmed that he and two of his future teammates also made the trip down to Bloomington. “It was just me, Jeremy (Hollowell) and Yogi (Ferrell) going down to play in open gym. That’s about it. We got in a couple of good runs,” he said of the experience.
— Building relationships: One of the built-in advantages for Indiana’s 2012 recruiting class is the familiarity that the group will have with one another upon their arrival in Bloomington. Four of the five recruits (Ferrell, Hollowell, Hanner Perea and Patterson) played together this spring and also traveled to the NBA Camp in Charlottesville, Virginia in June. “Our relationships are growing more,” Patterson said. “We’re learning each other’s games, our dislikes and likes, where we want the ball.”
