Julian had already established himself as Illinois' number one target at the wing forward position, but now he is making a huge claim for the number one position in TheInsiders.com Top 100 per National Recruiting Analyst Dave Telep:
Julian Wright, the 6-foot-8 Chicago Julian standout, begins the second half of July as the player everyone is buzzing about. His MVP effort at the Peach Jam and terrific showing at Nike Camp make him the biggest riser in our Top 10. We listed him in early July at No. 8 (the highest of any major recruiting site; others had him between 12 and 23) and he's made us look very smart.|
Wright isn't the big scorer that others are but his game is more complete. He's a point-forward who makes the guys on his team better. His passing skills compensate for his limited perimeter game. Lute Olson, Dave Leitao and Bruce Weber have July passes to all of his games.
Heat Check – Shooting up the charts as we speak. Has made a case for No. 1 and has a little more time to add to the legend before the jury deliberates.
The recruiting battle for Julian Wright is just now starting to heat up. Stay tuned to IlliniBoard.com and TheInsiders.com to see where exactly the Illini stand with the newly named Nike Peach Jam MVP.
