One player who has seen his recruitment take a major jump since the Spring is Compton (Calif.) defensive back Anthony Wright. The talented safety is nearing double digits on the offer front and said one school from the Big 12 sits at the top of his leader board right now.
Wright, 6-0, 180 pounds was one of the top defensive backs we saw at the NIKE Camp at USC back in April. The athlete clocked a 4.65-40, jumped 31 inches in the vertical and was recognized for his play in the position and one on one drills.
As a junior, Wright had a solid season on both sides of the ball. He rushed for 1,020 yards and five touchdowns to go with 51 tackles and four interceptions and is being recruited primarily to play on the defensive side of the ball.
Baylor was the first school to offer Wright and since then, Nevada, San Diego State, Colorado, Colorado State, UNLV and San Jose State have jumped on board with an offer.
"In addition to those schools, I'm also hearing from schools like Nebraska, Cal, Washington and LSU," Wright said. "Colorado is my top school, I really like them a lot. They have been recruiting me harder than anyone over the last month or so and have told me I'll have a chance to come in and play right away.
"I haven't set up any of my official visits yet but that's definitely going to be one of the first visits I set. Baylor stands out too, especially since they were my first offer and I also like Nebraska a lot. They haven't offered but said they want to wait and see my first game or two this season. Locally, I like San Diego State. They have offered and I like what the coaches are saying there.
"I'm not planning to make an early commitment anywhere. I want to try and take all five of my trips if I can. Hopefully I can take some during the season so I can see the schools on a game weekend and then I'll be ready to make my decision later in the year."
