Louisville WR Dez Fitzpatrick has accepted an offer to play in the 2021 Reese’s Senior Bowl, the longest-running and most prestigious college all-star game.

Fitzpatrick led Louisville in receiving yards in 2020 with 833 and was second on the team in receptions with 43. He finished fourth in the ACC in yards per catch at 19.37 ypc, and was one of just two players in the country to make at least 40 catches and average that yardage. The senior recorded three 100-yard receiving games in 2020, including an eight-catch, 182-yard performance against Boston College and 158 yards versus Virginia Tech.

Fitzpatrick is tied with Tutu Atwell for fifth on Louisville’s all-time touchdown reception list with 21, and is sixth all-time in career receiving yards at 2,589. He only trails Arnold Jackson, Harry Douglas, Ibn Green, DeVante Parker, and J.R. Russell.

The 2021 installment of the Senior Bowl will be played at Hancock Whitney Stadium in Mobile, Ala., on Jan. 30. Kickoff is set for 2:30 p.m. and the NFL Network will have the coverage.
