The 6-foot-1, 175-pound Wright is the nation’s No. 7 cornerback and the No. 6 prospect in California, according to 247Sports.
Wright explained to 247Sports what interested him in each B1G program.
In terms of Michigan, Wright particularly enjoyed the game day experience at The Big House.
“I had a great visit to Michigan in November and it really opened up my eyes. I was there for a game weekend and even though we couldn’t watch from the stands, I still was able to get a feel for how much passion and energy the fan base has there for Michigan football,” Wright said. “Michigan is a great academic fit and I like their style of defense. They play a lot of man coverage and leave their guys on an island out there and I like that. David Long is from Loyola and he always talks up Michigan and I can see why after my visit.”
Despite not being able to visit Nebraska, Wright still came away impressed with the Cornhuskers.
“Nebraska is the one school I was never able to visit. It’s unfortunate because I really like them a lot and they have recruited me as hard and as consistent as anyone,” Wright said. “In any other year, I would have been able to get out there and taken an official visit. Since the time they offered me, coach Chinander has been great with me and we have had some great conversations about football and life as well so I’ll always have love for them.”
Wright will announce his decision on Jan. 2nd during the All-American Bowl (3 p.m. EST/NBC).
