Wright Has A-10 Official Lined Up

Dion Wright has an official visit to an A-10 school set and might be visiting a Big 12 school, too. Check inside for the latest!

The signing period has come and gone for 2012 Dion Wright, but he'll be taking an official visit to St. Bonaventure on May 30.

The Bonnies have been impressed the six-foot-six forward, who runs with the Compton Magic.

"I was playing real good in Las Vegas," Wright said. "St. Bonaventure contacted me because they liked the way I play and they said they were looking for a wing. They have seen me play on the internet and they really enjoyed the way I played."

Oklahoma State associate head coach Butch Pierre has also been in frequent contact with the California native.

"He said he liked the way I play and he was talking about an official visit, but it never came through," Pierre said. "He said all the coaches were going to meet after Memorial Day and when they all get back in town and see where we're going from here."

So what can he bring to the table?

"I like to get up and down the court," Wright said. "I'm a long wing, I can rebound real well. I really like running the lanes hard. That's pretty much my game."

Although he doesn't have a timetable for a decision, if his May 30 visit goes well, don't be surprised to see him commit.

"St. Bonaventure is a really good school and Oklahoma State, I will have to sit down with my family and talk about it," Wright said.

New Mexico had been in the mix for a while until Ryan Miller left for a job at Missouri and the connection has since ceased.

In terms of his growth as a player, he sees definite areas of improvement before he sets foot in college.

"I need to work on my strength for sure," Wright said. "I also need to get my jump shot a little better. After that, I think I'll make a fine basketball player."
