Mission Viejo (Calif.) has become one of the top programs in the Western region this past year and already has two players, Chane Moline- UCLA and Konrad Reuland- Notre Dame, committed to big time programs. Another player drawing Div I interest is wide receiver Sean Fitzgerald and he'll take his first two visits in the next two weeks.
Fitzgerald, 6-2, 190 pounds is an athletic player who also starts on the schools basketball and volleyball teams. On the gridiron this past season, the receiver caught 28 balls for 620 yards and nine touchdowns.
We saw Fitzgerald at several summer passing league tournaments and like his size, hands and overall athletic ability. He's a solid route runner who should be a nice possession receiver at the next level. On the recruiting front, the athlete will take his first visit this weekend.
"I'm going to BYU this weekend and then to Utah the following weekend," Fitzgerald said. "Those are the only two teams I'm looking at right now and I'll make my decision after I get home from Utah in two weeks. Utah was the first school to offer me and I like them a lot. They have been recruiting me harder than anyone and have really made me feel like a priority.
"I like BYU too because it's the church school and I'm LDS and plan to go on a mission after high school. Both schools have offered me a scholarship but what I'll likely end up doing is grayshirting at whatever school I sign with and then go on my mission after my first year. That way my eligibility clock won't start until I get home from my mission."
