Fitzgerald is the 10th member of Texas’ 2016 class. He is the nation’s No. 31 strongside defensive end and the state’s No. 97 prospect, according to 247Sports’ composite ratings. Fitzgerald (6-5, 245 pounds) reported 22 scholarship offers, including Oregon, Oklahoma State and Texas Tech.
Fitzgerald is the second strongside defensive end to commit to Texas in less than a week, joining Baton Rouge three-star prospect Malcolm Roach, who chose the Longhorns last Friday.
