Borah HS PG Isaiah Wright (Boise, ID) is only a Junior but will likely be the top prospect in the State of Idaho for the 2014 class. The talented PG garnered First Team All-State honors in 2011 as he led his team to a state championship and also earned an early offer from Boise State. So, what are his thoughts on the Broncos?

"BSU is my only offer right now," he said. "Utah, Gonzaga, San Francisco, Utah State, Washington State, and Seattle U are also showing interest," he added.

"They actually gave me that offer last summer," he stated. "Coach Wojcik was the coach who offered me. They watched a lot of our games, liked how I played, and called me over to BSU that summer and said they wanted to offer me. It came as a surprise."

"My dad (former Bronco hoopster Archie Wright) was really proud of me," said Wright. "He was happy to know that I can follow in his footsteps should I choose to go there."

He went on to say that Boise State is recruiting him hard right now and that he feels "comfortable" around the Bronco coaching staff.

"They're recruiting me hard right now," he said. "I think they're all great coaches, fun to be around, cool to me, and I feel comfortable around them. I like how I'm from Boise and I don't have to leave if I go there."

"Like BSU, I have to be comfortable in the area," said Wright. "I'll also be looking at the coaches and definitely the players that I'll be around as well."

As a sophomore, Wright averaged 14 PPG, 5 APG, and garnered First Team All-State honors. He says they just wrapped up AAU summer ball and are now doing individual workouts as they prepare for the 2012 season.

"We just got done with our AAU stuff, back from Vegas, and are now doing individual workouts," he said. "We go and shoot with our AAU coach every morning as a team, workout and stuff, just stay in shape."

"I believe we lost eleven seniors from last year's team," said Wright. "We went 25-1 last year, won state, so this year's team will almost be brand new. Still, I think we have a good shot at state this year. We still have plenty of talent."

And Wright will also have to take on more of a leadership role as well as he'll likely be forced to step up his scoring this upcoming season.

"As a returning starter, I'll definitely have to be a leader," he said. "I think I'm going to have to score more next year. I feel that will be my job."

So, what does Isaiah Wright bring to the court?

"Most colleges say they like how I distribute the ball," he said. "They say that I'm a true point guard," he added.
