U of L '16 commitment in top 300

Farmington, Mich., 2016 wide receiver Desmond Fitzpatrick, who is one of four commitments to the University of Louisville in that class, has been ranked in Class of 2016.

Scout.com released its top 300 rankings for the football Class of 2016 on Friday and one University of Louisville commitment found his way onto the list.

Farmington, Mich., wide receiver Desmond Fitzpatrick, who committed on Oct. 31 to the Cardinals, is ranked as the No. 275 prospect in the country.

The Cardinals have offered as many as 33 of the top 300 prospects.

The 6-foot-2, 190-pound Fitzpatrick has picked up recent interest from Michigan and new coach Jim Harbaugh but the prospect told Scout.com two weeks ago he was "strong," with U of L and his commitment to the Cardinals.

"I'm definitely still strong with Louisville,” he said. “But I am also getting strong interest from other schools. But I always stay in touch with coach [Bobby} Petrino. I have a strong love for Louisville."

As a junior, Fitzpatrick had 32 catches for 511 yards and eight touchdowns, averaging 16 yards a catch. He has 66 catches for 1,025 yards and 11 TDs in two seasons.
