Wright wants to visit

Namon Wright is one of the top recruits in California. Read on for his thoughts on Arizona, his overall recruitment, and more.

It's no secret that the Arizona coaching staff is looking to load up on perimeter recruits in the 2014 class and there are many appealing options, including Los Angeles Pacific Hills shooting guard Namon Wright, who just finished off a strong season.

"We just won the California state championship," Wright said. "We knew if we played together we could win. I played well. I had a double-double and I felt like I was in control out there. It's a big honor because there are a lot of really good teams in California."

There are numerous schools in contact with Wright and Arizona is one that has been in consistent contact.

"Ever since Arizona offered me they've taken a lot more interest in my game," Wright said. "They were always interested, but now they're in constant contact and want me to become a Wildcat."

Wright says that Arizona likes him for numerous reasons and he has a high interest in the Wildcats as well.

"They like that my size gives me the possibility of playing multiple positions because they want to get their five best guys on the court," he said. "I enjoy watching them because the coaches trust the guards to go out and make plays. I've talked with all the coaches and they're all good guys and we're still getting to know each other."

As of now, Wright is unsure of what visits he wants to take, but it seems that Arizona will be on his schedule.

"They want me to get down to Tucson as soon as possible for a visit and now that my season is over I have a little more time for that kind of stuff," Wright said.

In addition to Arizona, Wright is also keeping an eye on his home town school.

"Coach Howland leaving definitely changes things," Wright said. "I liked Coach Howland and UCLA. I'm not saying they're out of the running or anything because I still like the school because it's local and has the amazing tradition, but I'm going to take a wait and see approach on that one. I also like Washington and Florida and some others, but there is no favorite at this point."
