Nebraska or Louisville for four-star WR Desmond Fitzpatrick?

Nebraska and Louisville are battling it out until the very end for Michigan prep four-star wide receiver Desmond Fitzpatrick.

Desmond Fitzpatrick, a four-star wide receiver from Waterford Mott high school in Michigan, is set to announce his final decision on Monday.

In contention – Louisville and Nebraska. 

After officially visiting Lincoln in November to see the Huskers knockoff Michigan State, the former Louisville commitment revisited the Cardinals this weekend on an official visit.

Once thought to be an eventual slam-dunk commitment for the Huskers, Louisville likely made up some ground this weekend.

"Louisville's never really went away," Greg Fitzpatrick, Desmond’s father told the Courier-Journal. "Dez's decommitment was for a number of reasons and nothing negative toward Louisville, their staff or their program. Dez committed to Louisville pretty early. He was committed for a year, and a couple things happened along the way that made him say, 'You know what? Let me make 1,000 percent sure and open my recruitment back up.' But Louisville has never gone away."

According to the report, Louisville head coach Bobby Petrino and offensive coordinator Garrick McGee spent much of the weekend showing the wideout how he would fit into the offense.

Expect a decision around 2 p.m. on Monday.
