Wright, rated the fourth best player in the 2006 class by Scout Hoops, has been rumored to be one of the players considering a jump from the high school level into the June 2006 NBA draft. For now, Wright is taking it one step at a time. "My first priority is to look at colleges," he said. "I am focusing on that."
Tennessee has also been mentioned previously by Wright, who is likely to receive significant support to land a spot on the 2006 McDonald's All American team if he has a great summer. "I don't have a favorite right now," Wright said. "It's about even with all of them. I think they all have great programs and coaches."
Wright does plan on taking time out of his schedule (now that his season is over) to spend some time watching the schools on television over the next few weeks. All of the programs high on his list are likely to compete in the NCAA basketball tournament which starts next week. "I like to see them play and I have seen them all play already," Wright said. "I like to see the style of play and how they get the big men involved in the offense."
Despite rumors that Wright had visited Kentucky, Brandan shot that down. "I haven't," he said. "I hope to someday take a trip there. I don't know when."
It's likely that Wright will take a few visits. But if the NBA does not put an age limit rule in effect in the next year, Brandan will have a tough decision. "I guess I will deal with it next year," he said. "I don't think it's going to go through. How can you stop a person from making a living?"
So the key moment in Wright's recruiting process could be dependent upon what Stern and the NBAPA decide to do regarding the age limit rule. Wright said he isn't worried nor effected by the ruling either way it comes down.
For now, Wright is preparing to compete at the Boo Williams tournament in April. "I am also going to be at the NIKE camp," he stated. "And I will go with my AAU team to some summer tournaments."
