Compton (Calif.) athlete Anthony Wright committed early to Colorado and then went out and had a monster senior season. Wright is a cinch to earn all-state honors but may not be done with his recruitment just yet.
Wright, 6-0, 185 pounds is one of the region's top two-way players and could play running back, corner or safety in college. After taking visits to Colorado and Nebraska, Wright committed to the Buffs as a safety and could see early playing time in college.
Despite his early season commitment, Wright decided to take an official visit to Arizona State this past weekend.
"Coach Yarber called me and told me I should come and check it out," Wright said. "Coach Yarber knew me from when he was at Washington and he was still recruiting me during the process.
"He said they have a new staff at ASU and I did some research on Coach Erickson. He's kind of a legend and has coaches a ton of players that went on to the League. He won two national titles at Miami and then turned the program around at Oregon State.
"So I went down there this weekend and really liked it a lot. I flew out with Robert Mullins and found out that my dad and his mom went to grade school together. We really hit off and hung out the whole weekend.
"The trip itself was great. They showed us around the campus, we got to walk out on to the field and I loved the stadium. They also have great facilities there, the weight room and everything is really nice.
"I liked all the coaches and they have a good track program as well. I'm hoping to double sport in college and ASU is strong in track. There really wasn't any negative's about the visit but right now, I'm still a Colorado Buffalo.
"I love Coach Hagan and Coach Brown and I'm just so comfortable with everyone there. I checked with those guys before I took the visit and they were cool with it. I just wanted to have more to compare with Colorado and after taking the visit, I still have the Buffs on top.
"I'm going to take one more visit next week and that will be to Washington. That will be my last visit and then I'm done with recruiting. Right now, I'm just looking forward to Signing Day. It's on the 7th and I can't wait to sign, this whole process has been a dream come true for me and I already can't wait to get out to Boulder next year and do my thing."
