Elite cornerback Minkah Fitzpatrick's offer sheet is on its way to matching his skill level. Over the weekend the stand out from Jersey City (N.J.) St. Peter's Prep visited two SEC schools to try to make them aware of his talents.
"I was at Vanderbilt on Saturday and didn't do the camp," said the 6-foot, 183-pound Fitzpatrick. "I left that day to go to Alabama for their camp. I got to my grandmother's house on Saturday night. She lives about two hours from Tuscaloosa. I got to campus on Sunday.
"Vanderbilt was a really nice campus," he said. "They're rebuilding everything because Coach Franklin and his coaching staff want everything to be very new. They are trying to keep their program going in the right direction. They showed me around the campus and Nashville is a really nice town. I liked it a lot."
Even though Vanderbilt did not offer, Fitzpatrick feels like he is building a strong relationship with the Commodores.
"I talked to Coach Franklin a lot," Fitzpatrick said. "He came to our school before and I've gotten to know him since then. He said they're really interested in me and that they have wanted me to come down for a visit."
Fitzpatrick suited up in Tuscaloosa to show of for the Crimson Tide staff.
"I did all four days of the camp," he said. "I talked to Coach Saban, Coach Smart and Coach Cristobal. Coach Saban said I was the best defensive back in the camp and that they want to see my first game and if I perform well they'll offer. I know my friends John Reid and Jalen Tabor were down here also. It was a lot of fun and a great experience."
