Kohl's Comments

Fitzgerald recently earned an invite to the National Underclassman Challenge in January of 2018 after a strong performance during the December Showcase Camp of 2017. He showed that he has the ability to hit off the ground with 6 made field goals on day 1 of camp. He was also very impressive during the kick off charting on day 1 with an average of 64+ yards and 3.73 seconds of hang time. He has the ability to play at the next level as a combo specialist and this off-season will be important to reach his full potential.
