Wright Enjoys UTEP Visit

Senior shooting guard Namon Wright says he recently had a great visit to UTEP. He says two more schools will get visits in the near future...

Namon Wright, 6-4 SR SG Los Angeles (Calif.) Pacific Hills, is one of the elite wing prospects in the west for 2014. He took a visit this past weekend to UTEP.

"I loved it," said Wright. "I like Coach Floyd a lot and the fans are amazing there. It's a good family environment."

I asked Wright about the campus.

"A lot of the campus was under construction but everything else was beautiful," said Wright. "They're building a new floor for the basketball court. The dorms and practice facilities were all pretty dope."

When asked for his impression of the returning players, Wright said "I got to spend time with them on and off the court. They're great guys, I like them a lot."

I asked Wright if he's still hearing from UCLA, Oregon, Arizona State, Gonzaga and Fresno St.

"Yes, still hearing from all of them," said Wright. "I'm setting up visits and I'll definitely visit Gonzaga and Arizona St. I'll have to get back to you with dates, but sometime in the near future." Wright told us recently that he plans on waiting until the spring to sign with a school.
