Never miss a local story.
FitzPatrick is considered a three-star prospect according to the 247Sports.com composite rankings. He also holds offers from SEC programs such as Alabama, Auburn, Mississippi, South Carolina and Vanderbilt. He holds a slew of offers nationally as well.
It is likely, based on his offer list, that FitzPatrick will eventually see a bump in his national ranking.
In a previous interview with The Telegraph, FitzPatrick said playing for an in-state school like Georgia would be ideal.
“It would give me the chance to be close to my family at all times,” he said.
