It wasn't going to take long for Pittsburg, Texas athlete Kendall Wright to see his mailbox start to fill up with letters and scholarship offers. The letters have been coming for some time, but a few weeks ago, the offers followed.
The 5-foot-11, 163-pounder says that within the last few weeks he received offers from Oklahoma State and Baylor. Though he denies having one school as the favorite, Wright does have a few schools on top and a visit planned to an in-state school in the next few weeks.
"I don't have one favorite," Wright said. "I do like Texas A&M, Texas, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, and Kansas State. It's nothing in particular about one, but I just like them."
Wright says he'll visit Texas A&M for their junior day on March 3. Though a decision doesn't look to be coming within the next few weeks, the way offers are coming, anything is possible.
Wright's film has obviously drawn interest where he performed at a number of different positions. Lining up at quarterback for his high school team, he could also be a receiver. On the basketball court, he is averaging 31 points a game at point and shooting guard.
"Everybody is recruiting me as an athlete or just a receiver," Wright said. "I want to play receiver. I just have speed, I can catch, and I'm quick on my feet. Plus, I can jump."
The first two offers certainly weren't expected from Wright, but he says he's looking at all of his options including the Cowboys and the Bears.
"I don't know that much about [Oklahoma State and Baylor]," Wright said. "The Oklahoma State coach (Joe Wickline) has told me just to call them from time to time. He also was at one of my basketball games."
