Wright gets two new offers

Namon Wright recently picked up two new high major offers. He also told Scout.com there were a few schools showing more interest than others.

Namon Wright has the West Coast powers all over him.

Among the newest schools to offer Wright, a 2014 wing prospect out of Los Angeles (Calif.) Pacific Hills, were Arizona and Washington.

Those two schools join the rest of the PAC-12 in offering Wright, except for Stanford, UCLA and Washington. Florida State has also offered.

"It's going good," Wright said of his recruitment. "It's fun. I'm not taking it too serious right now because I want to make sure we finish our season off right. But of course I'm talking to coaches and stuff like that and I'm about to set up visits."

Wright, a 6-foot-5 four-star wing, said there are a handful of schools showing the most interest.

"Florida State, Oregon definitely and Arizona State definitely," he said. "I talked to Arizona's head coach for the first time. I've always texted, but I called him for the first time and he seems to be really interested now that he's offered."

Wright is having a great junior season. West Coast Analyst Josh Gershon has seen him play a few times this season and he's said he's made some improvements to his long-range shooting.

"He's a versatile player that can defend and play both wing positions," Gershon said. "He's a terrific defender. He really rebounds the ball and loves to get out in the open court and attack the basket or find an open teammate."

"He's always had a strong mid-range game, but he's starting to improve from three," he added. "He's one of the more competitive players on the west coast. You know pretty much every game he's going to bring it."

Wright classified his play this year as "decent."

"I've played decent," Wright said. "I've been inconsistent on an elite level, but you could say good on a regular players level. I just have to play better."

Wright is currently ranked No. 52 overall in the 2014 recruiting class.
