Fitzgerald Transferring to Columbia

Northfield Mount Hermon alum Chris Fitzgerald will be transferring to Columbia University for his sophomore season following his freshman year at George Washington. 

Fitzgerald will have to sit out next season due to NCAA transfer rules but will have three years of eligibility remaining beginning in the 2012-2013 season. 

Northfield Mount Hermon will have 11 players on Ivy League rosters next season and 30 playing division I basketball. 

Fitzgerald just over 3 points and 7 minutes per game while seeing action in 13 games this year.  He is face-up four-man best known for his ability to stretch opposing defenses from behind the three-point line and will consequently be an ideal fit in Columbia head coach Kyle Smith's offensive system.
