Although it is still early, Desmond Fitzpatrick is already creating quite a buzz with his camp performances and already has offers from Indiana, Toledo and Ohio.
The Farmington High product is one of the top young prospects in the state of Michigan and it is no surprise then that Michigan State is interested. Recently, he visited East Lansing.
"I really liked MSU," the 5'11, 170-pound prospect said. "It seemed like a great school and everyone we saw was friendly."
He had an opportunity, while on campus, to spend a lot of time with the Spartan coaching staff as well.
"I met with Coach Samuel for three hours and he told me that he really loved my skill level, route running and knowledge of my position. He said that they are going to definitely offer me, he just wants to see me play a couple varsity games, but they are going to offer me early."
In addition to spending time with Samuel, Fitzpatrick was also able to see the campus along with everything else the Spartans have to offer.
"I toured the athletic facilities, sat in the receivers meeting room and had a chance to see how the receivers prepare during the week. I got a chance to see the level of preparation that is required at the college level to really take advantage of your opponent. Coach Samuel is a really good coach and really knows the receiver position."
Fitzpatrick's focus is now turned to his senior season, but he had one last hurrah on the camp circuit, going out on the Rising Stars bus tour, where he earned his Toledo and Ohio offers.
"I think that I did really well on the bus tour. I had been working out really hard, so I didn't get tired or sore at any of the camps. I think that my routes were good and I competed hard and won probably 98% of my 1-on-1's. I made sure that I always went with the top groups, so that I can see what the competition was like. Getting two new offers was really cool after seven days on that bus. The bus rides were long, but well worth it."
