Damion Wright will be in Boise Saturday for his official visit. And while he's already in love with the City of Trees, he cannot wait to see the Blue Turf in full bloom.
"I'm just excited to finally see a game and get a tour of campus," Wright said. "I'm really excited to get up there. It's a great school."
Wright, rated a three-star recruit and the 108th best safety in the nation, has remained solid in his commitment to the Broncos. He speaks with defensive coordinator Marcel Yates and defensive backs coach Julius Brown on a weekly basis.
"They like my size and my stature," Wright said of his conversations with coaches. "They said if I get up there and do my part I could play as a freshman. That has me excited."
With nine current verbal commits on board, plus another future player who has signed financial aid paperwork to enroll early, Wright loves the camaraderie and brotherhood already formed with his fellow incoming Broncos.
Verbal commits expected to be in Boise with Wright include receiver Bryan Jefferson and junior college cornerback Marnez Ogletree. There will also be a number of uncommitted players checking out The Blue.
"We're a pretty close group, even if we don't talk a ton," Wright said of his fellow incoming Broncos. "I can't wait to get up there for school and get to know them even better."
But first, Wright will line up at safety and under center for his Bishop Mora Salesian High School Mustangs against La Mirada in the first round of the CIF Southern Section Southeast Division playoffs Friday night.
