Fitzgerald took his Official Visit to NC State on the weekend of the 13th. From my source close to the program, Fitzgerald verbally committed (not made public), but then he ended up taking an Official Visit to Arizona State this past weekend, making things murky. Even as of today, from my understanding, the Wolfpack wasn’t super optimistic, but here we are.
Both ON3 and ESPN rank Fitzgerald as the #1 Junior College Safety Prospect in the 2023 recruiting class, and ON3 ranks him as a 4-star prospect. ESPN ranks him as the #10 overall JUCO prospect in 2023, and ON3 ranks him 13th.
