Cal stands out to Nevada running back

Brandon Wright has offers from Colorado, San Diego State and UNLV but if one Pac-10 school offered it might be tough to beat.
Wright, who plays at Las Vegas (Nev.) Palo Verde, was raised until the sixth grade in the Bay Area so if California came in with an offer the Golden Bears could be the team to land his commitment.
One of the top running backs at the Los Angeles NIKE Camp, Wright said he's been talking to Cal and plans to visit this summer.
"If I got an offer from Cal, I'd go there right off the top," Wright said. "That's my favorite college. Just being raised in The Bay, being from The Bay and being around there stands out.
"That would be huge. That would be major. That would be the first choice off the top of everything. I've been talking to them and I've been getting a lot of mail from them. I haven't gotten an official offer but they're showing interest."
Wright, who rushed for 1,181 yards and 16 touchdowns in his junior season, said Arkansas still has not offered and the Razorbacks would like to see him at summer camp which is still under consideration. He said at the LA NIKE Camp that Arkansas was close to an offer.
Arizona and Arizona State have also reached out recently and are showing more interest in the Las Vegas standout who's also used in the passing game and on special teams in high school. Rivals.com included Wright on its top 11 performers list from the LA NIKE Camp.
"Everything is finally starting to build up," said Wright, who finished with 977 yards and 13 rushing touchdowns in his sophomore season. "I had a slow takeoff in the recruiting process but now everything is starting to bloom out."
Wright said he is still strongly considering Colorado and he'll look at San Diego State but that UNLV is a stretch. Cal stands out the most to him at this point and is hoping for an offer soon - maybe when he visits this summer. There is also a consideration to attend USC's Rising Stars Camp among others.
