Wendell Wright, 6-4 JR SG Lakewood (Calif.) Mayfair, is a long, athletic slasher with considerable upside. We spoke with Wright recently and asked about the schools he's considering.

"My top five are Oregon, UNLV, Arizona State, Washington State and SMU," said Wright.

We asked Wright if he favors any school in particular.

"I'd like to play in the Pac-10," said Wright.

Wright talked a little about the factors he'll consider when he makes his choice.

"The academics, the environment and the style of play," said Wright. "I want to play in a run and gun system."

We asked Wright what he believes he need to work on to improve his game.

"I'm looking to improve my jumper, my mid-range and creating space for my shot," said Wright.

Wright told us he's in no hurry to make his decision.

"I won't do anything until after the summer," said Wright. "I'm going to take my trips after the summer."

Wright told us he has a 3.0 GPA.
