After weeks of deliberation Princeton Junction, NJ LB J.B. Fitzgerald ended any remaining questions about his recruitment Tuesday night. The Rutgers Scarlet Knights were able to persuade him to take another look in the aftermath of the coaching change in Ann Arbor, but in the end the Maize & Blue was strong to overcome.
“I definitely saw some new things,” Fitzgerald said referring to his in-state school. “I grew closer with the staff and the official visit they blew me out of the water. But after a lot of thinking and just weighing it out, I figured Michigan was the best place for me. I thought it out in my mind, my heart, and my gut… and they were all telling me that Michigan is where I need to be right now. I’m going to sign with Michigan tomorrow.”
