Mississippi State gets WR turned QB

Nick Fitzgerald (Richmond Hills, Ga./Richmond Hill) has become the Bulldogs' 14th pledge for 2014, according to multiple reports.

Fitzgerald actually started at wide receiver last season and caught 18 passes for 321 yards and 4 touchdowns. He served as the backup quarterback to Dominique Allen, who signed with Air Force.

Middle Tennessee also extended a scholarship offer to the 6-foot-5, 208-pound prospect. Other programs, such as Georgia Tech, showed interest.
