While there is no doubt that four-star cornerback Shareece Wright (5-11, 180, 4.53) from Colton, Calif., is one of the Golden State's best defensive backs, checking in as the No. 14 cornerback in the nation in the Rivals.com rankings, but if he continues to play the way he did in the opener at the running back position Rivals.com just might have to change his position to running back.

Wright rushed for 281 yards on nine carries. Let me get my calculator out. That computes to a 31.2 yards per carry average. He also scored three touchdowns on the night while helping Colton to a 55-37 victory over San Diego (Calif.) Rancho Buena Vista.
