Played the last two years at Northfield Mount Hermon in Northfield, Mass., where he shot 47 percent from long range as a senior under coach John Carroll. He helped lead the team to a 23-8 record as a senior (18-10 as a junior) and Northfield Mount Hermon was nationally ranked during both seasons. His squad fell to Brewster Academy (NH) in the Prep Championship title game last season. "He is an elite shooter," Carroll said of Fitzgerald. "I've coached several great shooters during my career and Chris is right at the top of the list. He has come into games for us and hit six [threes] in a row."
"Chris is a long, deep range shooter," Hobbs said. "He shoots the 3 with consistency in the halfcourt as well as in transition. He has great size and is also a good passer."
