Minkah Fitzpatrick’s Younger Brother Earns First College Scholarship
It's been a great week for the Fitzpatrick family when it comes to football. Minkah Fitzpatrick recently signed a contract extension with the Pittsburgh Steelers, making him the highest paid safety in NFL history. He also made a little noise on the Pickleball court as he and a stranger took down some of his teammates, but he wasn't the only Fitzpatrick to make headlines.
Justice Fitzpatrick, younger brother of the Alabama legend, earned his first college scholarship offer after showcasing his skills at Florida Atlantic University's mega-camp. The class of 2026 product plays both wide receiver and defensive back for Saint Thomas Aquinas High School in Fort Lauderdale, Fl.
Fitzpatrick was offered his first scholarship by the Big 10's Indiana University.
As just a rising freshman he stands at 6-foot, 165 pounds. Fitzpatrick has also participated in camps at Alabama and at Georgia so far.
The Alabama-legacy prospect joined St. Thomas Aquinas this season. The program has produced more NFL Draft picks than any other high school over the last decade and Fitzpatrick is looking to follow that path with the Raiders.
Fitzpatrick still has a long way to go until he plays college football but he's in an excellent environment to develop as either a receiver or defensive back. Rising freshman are not ranked by recruiting services but he's certainly started to catch the eyes of college football coaches.
