* Crestwood LB Damien Wright remains firmly committed to the South Carolina Gamecocks. He will take no other official visits. Wright is also the only prospect in the state offered by Clemson, that has verbally committed to South Carolina.

* From a physical standpoint, Wright looks like a strong safety/rover at the next level. He's enjoyed a strong week of practice and should be an instrumental player on the Sandlappers' defense Saturday. "I like to play in the secondary and I think I'm most comfortable as a safety. You can see the whole field and make plays from back there."

* Wright says that he's already talked to new South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier a couple of times, and that's he looking forward to meeting his future head coach in January. "I've talked to Coach Spurrier a couple of times, he called me last week. Just firm things up," said Wright. "I'm looking forward to meeting him one on one though. I'm excited about going there."

* Wright also says that he's looking forward to Saturday's game. "It should be a lot of fun. We just need to come out with a 'W.' That's the most important thing. It's an honor to be here with the best players in both state," added the senior safety.

* Wright is scheduled to visit the Gamecocks offiically on Jan. 14. Top Stories
