2015 QB Jimmy Fitzgerald Commits to Illinois!

Bradley Leeb-US PRESSWIRE

Illinois snared their first recruit of the 2015 recruiting class today, as pro-style quarterback Jimmy Fitzgerald verbally-committed to the Illini. At six-foot-three and 205 pounds, Fitzgerald is almost the same exact size as Bill Cubit's best quarterback at Western Michigan, Alex Carder. Fitzgerald comes in as a three-star recruit by both services which have ranked him thus far, 247Sports and Rivals. He's also roughly a top ten player in the state according to those same two services. It's always nice to protect the border, and getting a Champaign native like Fitzgerald is even better. Here's Jimmy's celebratory tweet:

Welcome to the Illini family, Jimmy Fitzgerald!
