6'6, 215-pound Zaire Patterson from Winston-Salem, NC is the 13th commit of the Tigers' 2021 class and the 4th commit this month! With offers from Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, Florida, FSU, Oklahoma, Notre Dame and many more, Patterson looks like a natural edge rusher in the mold of Vic Beasley. His runner-up was the Gamecocks, so the Tigers stole a good one from their arch-rivals. They will likely only sign 5 or 6 more in this class. All 13 of the Tigers' commits are all 4-stars or better according to ESPN, and the class remains No.3 behind Ohio State and Tennessee in the ESPN rankings.
