SoCal Cornerback Closing on His Fifth Visit

Shareece Wright has one more official trip scheduled, and one possible unofficial in the works. Last weekend the Sun Devils were his latest destination, and the Colton (Calif.) standout talked about his visit to Tempe.

"It was a good visit," said the 5-11 185 Shareece Wright. "I had a chance to meet a lot of the coaches for the first time, hang out with the players. I really liked the campus. I didn't think it would be that nice." Keno Walter-White was his host player on the trip.

The Sun Devils have targeted Wright early in the recruiting process, and apparently weren't alone. "They've been watching me since my junior year and they offered me in the spring," he recalled. "All the other schools offered me at the same time. Schools like Nebraska, Boise State, Arizona…" Aside from Arizona State, Wright has visited Arizona, Oregon, and Nebraska, and has a visit planned to LSU on 12/16. Devils Digest has learned that USC may host him unofficially, assuming his grades and test scores improve.

Wright is being recruited as a cornerback, but he has also showed great running ability in high school. The cornerback finished his senior season with 16 rushing touchdowns on 78 carries for a total of 1020 yards. Defensively, he had 68 tackles. "My strong point is my awareness," he said as he self-assessed his skills. "I'm strong and fast. I need to work on just improving my technique so I can play at the college level."

Wright hasn't achieved a qualifying score yet, and will retake the SAT in January. He does list education, along with an opportunity to play and an overall good environment as factors that will weigh heavily in his decision. "I'm gonna sign with a school where you know where it's at."

The four-star prospect has picked a lofty stage to make his announcement. "I'm gonna make my decision at the CaliFlorida," he stated. "If I know where I'm going by then (laughs). It's been kinda crazy (in regards to recruiting), but I'm thankful I'm able to experience this, because a lot of players don't get recruited."

Wright stressed that he has no favorites at this time. ASU's Special Teams and Tight End Coach Tom Osborne visited Wright in the beginning of the month, and Head Coach Dirk Koetter is scheduled to visit the cornerback at the conclusion of all his visits.
