Fitzpatrick decommits from Louisville
Four-star Waterford (Mich.) Mott Desmond Fitzpatrick made his initial commitment of the recruiting process to Louisville during October of his junior season. Just over one year later, Fitzpatrick has decided to end that commitment, announcing that he has let the Cardinals coaching staff know of his intentions to re-open his recruitment.

WHAT'S NEXT? Earlier this month Fitzpatrick took his first official visit of the process to Nebraska, saying after he "loved everything about it." No other official visits have been scheduled and none are expected to be scheduled until after Thanksgiving. Schools like Minnesota, Michigan and Pittsburgh have been mentioned in the past as possible official visits destinations, but new schools, including several from the Pac-12, have been in contact since Fitzpatrick's decommitment was announced.
IN HIS WORDS: "I have spoke with the coaches at UofL and let them know that I am no longer honoring my commitment to the University of Louisville and reopening my recruitment." - Fitzpatrick via Twitter.
RIVALS' REACTION: Fitzpatrick stepping away from his Louisville commitment does not come as a surprise, as he has made it very clear in recent months that other teams have caught his attention. Per his message on Twitter, it appears that Louisville will not be considered going forward. Nebraska certainly sits in the best position following his official visit to Lincoln earlier this month, but it remains to be seen how many more official visits Fitzpatrick takes before he makes a final decision.
