Bright's recruitment appears to be a two-horse race at this point, with ISU and Tennessee battling for this top star at one of the nation's top prep school programs. The Insiders' Dave Telep considers Bright to be one of the best to come out of Mount Zion since Tracy McGrady in 1997.
Although Bright has yet to schedule a third official visit, a decision is not as imminent as others believed after last weekend's trip to Ames.
"I haven't made a commitment, because I wasn't comfortable about it yet," Bright said. "Tennessee and Iowa State are about the same…50-50. I want to take my time and make a decision then."
ISU head coach Wayne Morgan and Quartlebaum made an in-home visit last on Sept. 9, according to Bright. Bright added that the Cyclones and Volunteers each have something in common – the chance to play as a freshman.
"Iowa State doesn't really have anybody to play two-guard or small forward and I could come in right away and play," he said. "I would get the chance to play right away at three for (Tennessee). Playing time is something I'm thinking about."
The Cyclone coaching staff already has secured a commitment from prep school athlete Rahshon Clark, a 6-foot-6, 180-pounder out of Bridgton Academy in Maine.
