Julian Wright Has a Definite Top 3

Julian Wright took time to speak with TheInsiders.com's Benjamin Egger and he released his final school list and talked about the timeframe on his recruitment. <br><br> Read more in this update on the Peach Jam MVP from IlliniBoard.com.

With his performance over the summer, Illinois Warriors SF Julian Wright has staked his claim among the best of the 2005 class.

"So far so good, I'm trying to be optimistic about everything," Wright said during his MVP performance in leading the Warriors to the Peach Jam title. "It's nice to play back in my desired position (of the small forward, after playing in the post at other camps this summer). We've got some quality post players (on his AAU team, the Illinois Warriors). They help us out, give some energy, and help get rebounds. We've got a lot of hustle guys, guys that'll come in and give us energy if we need it."

Wright is a do everything SF who's just as effective distributing and defending on the outside as he is rebounding and rejecting shots inside, and he's got a "definite" final 3.

"Arizona, DePaul, Illinois," said Wright. "I take all my visits in September, so I'll make my decision the first or second week of October."

All three schools have been following Wright around the country on the AAU circuit, making sure if head coaches Lute Olsen (Arizona), Dave Leitao (DePaul), and Bruce Weber (Illinois) aren't in attendance for a Warriors game, at least an assistant is in eyesight.

Whoever gets Wright will get an immediate impact player capable of leading them to big things.
