Three-star quarterback Travis Wright of Louisville (Kent.) Trinity is still waiting for his first scholarship, but the 6-foot-1, 180-pounder believes he is getting closer.
"I'm getting close to offers from Toledo, Ball State and Vanderbilt,"
he said. "Those are the top three as far as showing the most interest in me."

Wright has already camped at one of these schools and will likely attend the other two camps in the coming weeks.
"Ball State wants me to go to their camp on June 22nd," said Wright. "All I have to do is do my best and they'll probably offer. I'm planning to go to Vanderbilt's prospect cookout and camp this weekend and they seem really, really interested. They have been asking me to come to camp for a couple months. Then, I just went to Toledo's camp last weekend and did really well. They have to evaluate more quarterbacks Thursday and then they'll get back to me."
Wright has also been to camps so far at Western Kentucky and UT-Martin, while other schools continue to show interest including Indiana, Nebraska, Oregon, Georgia Tech, Mississippi State and Tennessee.
This far into his recruiting process, Wright discussed if any school is standing out.
"You know, I'm kind of interested in whoever is interested in me," he said. "A lot of that probably has to do with not having offers yet, so I can't shut anybody out."
Still, Wright is looking for a few things wherever he ends up.
"First and foremost, I'm looking at what is going to be on the table for me after college," he said. "I have dreams of playing in the NFL, then again, every high school and college player does. If that doesn't work out, I want to make sure I have a great opportunity for the rest of my life to be successful. Second, I want a coaching staff that I relate with. I don't want to just commit somewhere who is throwing out an offer to anyone who will take it. Third, is the offensive system, I want what is best for me and time will tell."
Wright threw for over 3,000-yards and accounted for 39 total touchdowns as a junior last season while earning first team All-District, second team All-State and second team All- American honors. He was also named the MVP of the state championship game.
"I think as a player, I make really good decisions with the ball," he said. "I'm smart with the ball and I see the field well. I can move around and I have a high-completion percentage. Also, I've only lost one game in three years at Trinity. I'm 27-1."
