Fitzgerald Raises Play During Spring

Andrew Fitzgerald had a good spring and college coaches took notice. Since the evaluation period ended he's heard from a bunch of schools and a pair of them are starting to stick out.

Andrew Fitzgerald is starting to develop some favorites.

The 6-foot-8, 240-pound big man had coaches following him game to game during the spring AAU circuit and a pair of schools are making a strong impression on him.

"Pittsburgh and Xavier, those are the two that I like the most," Fitzgerald said. "They showed up at my high school games and they've been to a bunch of my workouts."

To go with the Panthers and Musketeers, the class of 2009 standout also mentioned Kentucky, Texas A&M and Memphis as schools that are recruiting him hard. Despite him having a few programs at the top of his list, he's still open to new schools.

"[Recruiting has] definitely picked up," the Owings Mills (Md.) High product said. "There's just been a lot of schools calling."

Fitzgerald's was known as a high level recruit prior to the April evaluation period, however he did put together a good spring and that further solidified his high major status.

"I think it went good," he said of the spring. "The last three tournaments I did pretty good. Mainly I was knocking down every jump shot I took and I boxed players out and got a bucket when we needed a bucket."

"I'm still trying to work on other things because when I get to college I won't be in the box all the time and I'll have to step out," he continued.

Fitzerald, who is ranked No. 82 overall, said he doesn't plan on making a college decision until the beginning of the school year.
