Wright looking hard at Arizona

Namon Wright is one of the top players in the west for 2014. Read on for an update on his recruitment, including his thoughts on Arizona, when he might decide, and more.

Namon Wright is known as one of the more competitive kids on the west coast and his recent decision to transfer to Findlay Prep only reinforces that notion.

"The main reason I decided to go to Findlay was because of the competition," Wright said. "I really want to start as a freshman in college and going to a place like Findlay where a ton of other really good players are should really improve me. I also think I will get a lot stronger there."

While Wright has been busy deciding where he will attend high school next season, he hasn't given much thought to his college plans.

"Nothing has changed too much in my recruitment," Wright said. "UCLA and Arizona are up there while Gonzaga and Florida State are now involved."

Wright remains in constant communication with Arizona, as the coaching staff is working to get him on campus.

"I hear from the Arizona coaches pretty much as much as they are allowed," he said. "It's usually Coach Pasternack, but sometimes it's Coach Miller. They've told me they really like my game and that I play the right way and that I would be a big help to their program.

"They want me to get down there for a visit soon, but I'm pretty busy this summer, so we'll see how everything works out."

Wright would not name any favorites at this tiem, but does admit that Arizona impresses him.

"It's a school that I definitely have a lot of interest in because the coaches are really good and they are getting a bunch of good players all the time it seems," Wright said.

Arizona, like every other school recruiting Wright, will have to be patient because a commitment is not coming anytime soon.

"I could see myself deciding by the end of the summer," Wright said. "If not, I will probably decide before the season starts.

"I'm not going to make a decision until I take my visits and those aren't going to happen anytime soon."
