CHAMPAIGN - Centennial quarterback Jimmy Fitzgerald picked up his first Division I offer last night, courtesy of Tim Beckman and the Fighting Illini.  But if Fitzgerald continues to perform the way he in camps lately, more offers could be on the way soon.

Fitzgerald is turning himself into a rising star among quarterback prospects statewide.  He has received interest from Northwestern, Stanford, Duke, North Carolina and NC State.  But he says this first offer from Illinois is extra special.
