A 2014 top 100 wing, Wright re-committed to Missouri, just a few weeks after asking for and receiving a release from his Letter of Intent.
"After getting released from my letter I gave them a chance to re-recruit me," Wright told Scout.com. "Even before the change Missouri was in my heart and I felt it was the right place."
"I liked that (Kim Anderson) was honest and I just know he's a good dude," Wright added. "Sometimes you have to take a leap of faith that everything is going to be OK.?
Wright opted to ask for his release shortly after Frank Haith, the coach he originally signed with, left for Tulsa.
"They tell me they're going to do what they can to help me fulfill my dreams of being a pro," he said. "I felt the coaches were really honest and didn't pressure me."
Wright, a four-star recruit, is ranked No. 72 overall in Scout.com's top 100.
