Two-way standout Anthony Wright (6-0, 183, 4.5) from Compton, Calif., has become quite a favorite of the Big 12 conference as he notched his third offer from the league that covers the heartland.
"Today Anthony Wright (Tuesday May 9th) received another Big 12 offer from the University of Colorado," Compton coach Calvin Bryant said. "The recruiting process is going very good for Anthony."
"Ken Norton and Pete Carroll came to visit our campus on Friday," Bryant said. "Afterwards Coach Carroll came to the Moore League Track Meet Finals and saw Anthony run the 300 hurdles."
Wright participates in track and runs the 200-meter, 300-meter, 110-HH and long jump.
Wright picked up his first offer from Baylor, then Nebraska followed suit last week and now Colorado has thrown their hat into the ring today offering the talented running back/defensive back a scholie.
There are even more Big 12 schools showing interest in Wright. He has even received letters from Big 12 powerhouses Oklahoma and the National Champion Texas Longhorns.
According to Wright Ole Miss is on the verge of offering and every school in the Pac-10 except Stanford is recruiting him.
Wright earned first-team all-league honors in the very tough Moore League as a running back. He was also his Team's MVP.
On the offensive side of the ball, Wright rushed for 1,020 yards and six touchdowns.
As a defensive player, Wright racked up 51 tackles, two picks and one forced fumble.
