Sometimes at the high school level football players are asked to play out of position in order to help their team. With quarterback being the most important position on the field it often happens that a team’s best athlete is forced into the quarterback role. That is the case for Alief (Texas) Taylor athlete Arist Wright.
“I am forced to play quarterback but I don’t really mind it,” said the 6-foot, 205 pound Wright. I am playing quarterback but I should be playing defensive back because that is what I think I am best at. Everyone that talks to me says that I should play defensive back but my team needs me at quarterback.”
On the recruiting front Wright is hearing from a host of schools but is yet to pick up his first offer.
“No sir, no offers yet,” he said. “I get mail and phone calls from quite a few schools though. I get a lot of mail and calls from Louisiana Tech, Iowa, Tulane, Houston, Texas Tech and Iowa State and Kansas have been sending me more mail recently. I think Louisiana Tech will offer me, actually they said they were going to offer. They said that they will let me know.”
As far as who is recruiting the hardest he says that the two home state schools are doing the most right now.
“Texas Tech and Houston are recruiting me the hardest,” he said. “I think that I like Houston the most right now because they are so close to home.”
