Plant HS ATH Mitchell Wright (Tampa, FL) currently holds four offers, but could be on the verge of more as Boise State and a number of other schools continue to show interest. Boise State has told Wright that an offer would likely come if he visited The Blue sometime this summer. So, will Wright visit Boise State and checkout the program?

"Basically, I spoke to Coach Lake and was told if I took a trip out there at the end of July that they would offer me," he said. "It's something we're considering right now and would likely be around the 25th or so," he added.

"They talk about Plant being the HS version of Boise State," he stated. "I like what the coaches, players, and the team is all about out there. They look for quality players, quality people, and it's all about the team."

"I like the fact that they're in the Big East now," said Wright. "My parents wouldn't have to fly seven hours to Boise just to watch me play. They could go watch me at USF or UCF when we play them. That makes it a lot easier to go further away for college."

Wright visited Boston College and USF just a couple weeks ago and says he enjoyed both visits.

"I wanted to see what Boston College was all about," he said. "I want to take a look at the campus, but also see what people I'd be around. BC is solid academically...very prestigious. That's something I'm taking a look at as well."

"I've been to a lot of USF games and I like how they've turned the program around," said Wright. "They're doing some of the same things as Boise State. They're recruiting solid players and well-rounded people."

HS football in the State of Florida is highly-competitive and Plant has one of the top programs in the state. The program produces a number of highly-recruited D-1 athletes each year, including current Georgia QB Aaron Murray. Like Boise State, the secret to their success is hard work.

"The secret is hard work," he said. "We know the only way to get better is to roll up your sleeves and get to work. Our practices are the same throughout the season...very intense. You'll see that other teams have more talent than us, but we have the better team."

"We won state last year," said Wright. "Personally, I like our team this year a lot. I think this will be one of our most talented teams and we return a lot of people on defense. I think we're all set."

So, what does Mitchell Wright bring to the gridiron?

"I think the main thing right now is my speed," he said. "I've also been told it's about my leadership, hustle, and what I do in the classroom," he added.
