2019 ATH Making a Name for Himself:

Dawg Post caught up with 2019 athlete Winston Wright Jr. after an impressive performance at the Lassiter MVP Camp.

Every spring, an under the radar recruit or two will make a name for themselves at the MVP camp. This past MVP Camp at Lassiter high school, 2019 athlete Winston Wright is the guy who helped himself the most. At 5-foot-10 166-pounds, Wright wasn’t the biggest guy out there, but his play stood out from the start. After an impressive performance, there’s a chance some major schools could start showing interest over the next few weeks.

“I hear from Florida, South Carolina, Western Kentucky, Georgia Souther, Mercer, and Coastal Carolina the most.” Wright said. “UGA’s Director of On Campus Recruiting, Lukman Abdulai talks to me and tells me to trust the process and keep working and I’ll get what I deserve in the end. I love the atmosphere when I go down there to UGA. It’s like family and my mom and dad just love it down there when I’m on campus.”

Wright impressed at receiver, defensive back, and even running back at the camp, showing he’s a true athlete on the field. So what position are schools recruiting him to play?

“All the coaches I speak with say my frame is built like a RB, but some coaches like me in the slot because of my quickness.” Wright said.” Then some say DB because of my physicality.”

IF the offers start rolling in, it’s clear one offer might stand out among the rest.

“If they offer, UGA would be a top one because it’s home and it’s in my state and that would mean a lot for me to play for my home state.”
