Standout linebacker/running back Allen Bradford (6-0, 222, 4.45) from Colton, Calif., isn't the only reason that D-I schools will be coming by Colton high this spring. There is another two-way notable that has caught the eye of D-I colleges.
The player is cornerback/running back Shareece Wright (5-11, 185, 4.45).
As a junior, Wright was selected first-team all-league, first-team all-county and first-team all-area as a cornerback.
Though Wright is an outstanding performer on both sides of the ball, he projects as a lockdown cover corner on the D-I level.
From his cornerback position, Wright collected 102 tackles, three sacks and two forced fumbles.
As a running back, Wright galloped for 1,228 yards on 139 carries while averaging 8.8 yards per carry and scored 12 touchdowns.
Wright is also an outstanding special teams performer who returned his first punt of the season 85 yards for a touchdown. The rest of the season punters made sure the ball didn't get the ball. He is also a dangerous kick returner.
Wright was one of the reasons that Colton had such an incredible run during their first season of competition on the tough SS CIF Division I level.
At the present time Washington is showing Wright a lot of interest. Colorado and Boise State are also showing Wright a lot of recruiting attention. Arizona State is also coming on of late showing Wright some recruiting love.
What is Wright looking for in a school?
"I want to play for a good quality coach and at a college that I will have a good chance to play early," Wright said. "I also want to feel comfortable and be in a good environment."
"I would also prefer to play in warm weather."
Wright is hard worker in the weight room. He's currently benches 295 pounds, squats 450 and cleans a very impressive 275.
