Wright Down To Four With One To Go

It's business as usual on the Brandan Wright. Scout.com's No. 5 prospect out of Brentwood Academy in Nashville, Tenn., has one official trip left after eliminating a school this week.

Brandan Wright, the 6-foot-9 power forward and Top 5 prospect, had to trim Louisville from his list of five schools this week.

"They had a guy (Earl Clark) yesterday commit and it was their last 2006 scholarship," Wright said. "They were in a situation where they would wait on me or go ahead and accept him. No hard feelings at all."

Wright, who remains committed to his process of officially visiting all schools before offering a commitment, is two weeks away from his final visit, a trip to North Carolina.

"I'm thinking they have a lot of scholarships for 2006," Wright said of the Heels.

Hometown Vanderbilt had a chance to show off for him last week and it went well. "It was a fun visit for me. I was very excited to see Vandy even though it's in town. It's a nice campus; compact and close together. I got to chill with Coach Stallings and the nice group of guys."

Vanderbilt head coach Kevin Stallings has a son, Jacob, who attends school with Wright and plays on the same team.

Duke recently took its swing at Wright; it was the second time he had been on Duke's campus in the last year.

"It was very fun also. Pretty much all the foundations of these visits are the same. Sitting there listening to Coach K, he's got knowledge of the game, basketball and life. He's a very intelligent guy. That's what I like about him a lot."

Kentucky's visit with Wright was the first one of the month and the Wildcats remain a strong player in his recruitment.
