McKinley Wright gives the latest on his recruitment

Originally signed with Dayton, class of 2017 recruit McKinley Wright is working through his options and hopes to make a few visits in the near future.

Not much is available on the point guard front in 2017, but one player who could make an impact as a freshman is McKinley Wright. Originally signed with Archie Miller and his staff at Dayton, Wright was let out of his Letter of Intent following the coaching the change there. Now Wright is looking at all options, and hoping to find the perfect fit for his game.

This past weekend as an uncommitted recruit Wright was allowed to participate at the adidas Gauntlet with D1 Minnesota, and he continues to look forward to college while working on his game.

"I am just playing and working on setting up the visits," said Wright. "I haven’t determined where to yet. I am talking to a lot of schools about coming in and being a part of their team next fall."

When it comes to the current state of his recruitment, Wright said, "I’ve been talking to Butler, Colorado, Minnesota, Baylor, Dayton, Georgia Tech, UNLV, LSU, and Marquette a little bit."

When it comes to Dayton, Wright said he no longer had a strong relationship with the staff, so he knew he had to re-open his recruitment and see what came next.

"My biggest thing is building a relationship," noted Wright. "I had a great relationship with Tom Ostrom and Archie Miller, and that was a big reason why I committed to Dayton. When they left I made the decision I had to build a relationship with Coach (Anthony) Grant at Dayton or with another program."

Wright has tentatively set up a visit with Colorado for this week, and he is interested in seeing what Boulder and the Buffaloes program is all about.

"I like the coaches there, and they say I can come in and play right away," said Wright. "I think it could be a good situation for me, and the Pac 12 is a great conference."

Wright has also mentioned possibly setting a visit up with Butler.

"I’m hoping to maybe set up a visit," said Wright of Butler. "They think I could come in and play as a freshman, so it could be a great opportunity for me if Butler is the right fit."

When it comes to making a decision on his future, Wright feels no rush.

"I’m not in a rush," noted Wright. "I want to take my time so I make the decision that is best for me, and find a place where I can play and produce right away."
