There may not be a hotter player in California right now than Colton (Calif.) athlete Shareece Wright. A week after rushing 281 yards on just nine carries (31 yard ave.) the athlete had another big game this past weekend and also set up his second official visit.
Wright, 5-foot-11, 180 pounds, is a member of the Rivals250 and is currently rated the No. 25th player in the state but he's looking like a top 10 prospect after his two performances. Last weekend, Wright rushed for 210 yards and three touchdowns and added a 99 yard kick off return for a score. Although we always saw the athlete as a cornerback, he's starting to open up to the idea of playing offense in college.
"I'm really liking running back right now," Wright said. "I think I could play offense in college and colleges are starting to recruit me more as an athlete than just for defense. It doesn't matter to me that much, I really like both sides of the ball."
Wright has all the physical tools to play running back or corner in college. He has good size and strength, runs well and is a tough, physical player.
"I feel so much stronger and faster this year," Wright said. "I knew I was going to have a big season because of all the hard work I put in during the summer. When I'm playing, I can just feel myself stronger and with more of a burst than I've ever had before."
Wright took his first official visit to Nebraska earlier this month and will take his second visit this up coming weekend a little closer to home.
"I'm taking a trip to Oregon," Wright said. "Me, Allen (Bradford) and Devin (Ross) are all going to be visiting Oregon. It should be a good time. I like Oregon and I'm interested to check them out in person. They're playing USC so that should be a really exciting game."
Wright was hoping to check out the two local schools, USC and UCLA, in action this past Saturday but wasn't able to make it to either game.
"We played in Paso Robles and didn't get home until really late," Wright said. "I was just beat all Saturday. Those two are probably my favorite two schools right now but they're also the only two among my favorites that haven't offered.
"With UCLA, it's strictly an academic thing. They're waiting for me to get my core GPA up and I've been working hard to do that. With USC, they said they're still evaluating me and want to be sure I'm good enough to play there I guess. I think I am so we'll just see what happens.

Right now, I just want to take all my trips and then make my decision later in the year."Here to view this Link.
