Is U-M still on Fitzpatrick's radar?

Louisville four-star junior wide receiver commit, Desmond Fitzpatrick, updates the latest in his recruitment.

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Louisville four-star junior wide receiver commit, Desmond Fitzpatrick, competed this past Sunday in at the Opening Regional. While he didn’t walk away with an Opening Invite, he still had an impressive performance and got to go up against some of the best.

“Definitely was just trying to go up against the best wide receivers in the country and obviously the best defensive backs in the country is the best competition,” Fitzpatrick told Michigan Insider. “I’m just trying to get better.”

Despite being committed to the Cardinals for months, his recruitment has been far from over as he’s heard from plenty of schools and added offers including from the hometown Wolverines. Still, his commitment has held firm to Louisville.

“There are a lot of teams that are still contacting me and I’ll probably be going on a couple more visits to Indiana, Illinois and Michigan,” said Fitzpatrick. “Right now, I am still committed to Louisville and talk to them on a weekly basis.”

A school that many speculate could flip the 6-1, 180-pounder’s verbal from the Cardinals is the Maize and Blue. However, the communication has been very minimal, but the four star in-state product still understands how big that offer is.

“We really haven’t been in contact that much, but I’m just knowing that that offer is still out there,” said Fitzpatrick. “Knowing that it is Coach Harbaugh coming from the NFL and the whole coaching staff pretty much came from the NFL, so that is a huge offer still.”

Has there been any talk from Harbaugh towards working to get Fitzpatrick once again back on campus?

“Not really, I haven’t been in contact with him that much lately,” said Fitzpatrick.

Even though Fitzpatrick has grown up in the Maize and Blue’s backyard and been up to Ann Arbor numerous of times, he still hoping to learn about this new staff.

“I grew up around Michigan, so really I just want to see how the environment is still with the new coaching staff and see how the players are liking Coach Harbaugh,” said Fitzpatrick. “Really there is a still a whole bunch of stuff I’m looking at.”

Fitzpatrick last camp of the summer will be at Sound Mind Sound Body football academy.
