adidas Uprising: Eli Wright
Owensboro (Ky.) Apollo standout Eli Wright made a statement on the opening night of the July Evaluation period at the adidas Uprising Gaunlet Finale. Wright, who missed both April evaluation weekends due to an injury, played an aggressive brand of basketball against Team Magic Elite. He attacked off the dribble, found ways into the paint and finished well through contact. In the past, Wright has favored going to the left, but on Wednesday night he showed an improved right hand dribble and he was much more confident attacking that side than in the past. To go with his driving ability, Wright showed he could make shots from long-range and buried a pair of three-pointers. Wright is now healthy and appears primed for a big July. A host of high major schools were at Tucker High School to watch him, including Rick Barnes, Danny Manning, Ray Harper and assistants from Clemson and a host of others. Wright told Scout after scoring 16 points in a loss, that Tennessee, Clemson, Oklahoma State, Indiana and Wake Forest are recruiting him the hardest. He also said he set up an official visit to Wake Forest for the weekend of August 1st.
