Syracuse Receives Pledge From Ron Patterson
Ron Patterson, a 6-foot-3 guard out of Brewster Academy in New Hampshire, committed to Syracuse on Saturday.
"Ron is an athletic guard who has shot the ball very well from the perimeter this fall," said Jason Smith, the Brewster Academy coach, in an email. "He's an excellent defender and has tremendous length (6'10+ wingspan). I imagine his length would be very effective and beneficial in Syracuse's zone defense."
Patterson, a top-30 player in the class of 2013, initially committed to Indiana but was denied admittance last August because of his academic record.
