Scout's Take: Wisconsin S commit

Wisconsin just picked up a safety commitment from Florida and so lets take a closer look at what he's like as a prospect.

What to Like: Wright has ideal size to play free safety at the college level. He's a legit 6-2 and has long arms and a frame that will likely carry more weight. He's not afraid to come up and smack someone and he can be seen doing that on the field. He's often looking to take someone's head off coming over the middle and that mentality puts fear into the minds of a lot of receivers thinking about coming across the middle on him. He also has experience playing corner so even though he's unlikely to play there in college, he has decent cover skills and could play there in certain situations.

What may concern you: He lacks great speed, even for someone his size. He's very rangy but doesn't close on the ball quite as well as some of the other safety prospects around the state. For a rangy 6-2 safety, he doesn't make a bunch of plays on balls in the air either, as witnessed by having just one pick as a junior last season. A lot of free safeties in Florida have experience playing receiver and bring excellent ball skills to the position but that's not something Wright has proven up to this point in his career.

Bottom Line: The Badgers are one of many schools trying to get quality athletes from the state of Florida and that's what they're getting here. At 6-2, he has the right frame. He's a good athlete whose skills should translate to playing in the Big 10. He's a physical player who can help in the running game and do a lot of things for you in the secondary.
