LSU leads for Wright

Defensive end Corey Wright has yet to receive and offer, but said that if LSU were to come calling, he'd be excited and may even be ready to commit.

The 6-3, 225-pound defensive end recorded 80 solo tackles last season and eight sacks for Jersey Village High School in Texas. He is originally from New Orleans but moved to the Lonestar State after Hurricane Katrina.

 

Wright said that one of the possible reasons he hasn't received an offer is a lack of tape on him due to the move. However, he does plan to attend an LSU camp this summer and said he hopes to impress the coaches with his skills.

 

"I think my speed and quickness are what make me such a good defensive end," he said. "Right now, I'm talking to a number of schools, I just haven't received an offer yet. I text message with Kansas State and Oklahoma State pretty regularly. They say that they really like me and that they'll keep looking at me and that I should just stay in shape."

 

A Louisiana native, Wright said he'd be excited to represent his home state by donning the purple and gold.

 

"It would be a dream-come-true," he explained. "I've always wanted to go there. I have LSU hats and posters all over my wall. I have a former teammate who ended up at LSU and I got to visit as a freshman and just loved it."

 

So could the Tigers count on a commitment from Wright should they offer?

 

"I like a lot of things about LSU," he said. "They are a prestigious school. I like there defense and they send people to the NFL. That is one of my goals and I feel like at LSU I would become the best player I could be. I would definitely commit if LSU were to offer."

 

Other schools Wright is talking with include Purdue, Oklahoma State, Kansas State, New Mexico State, Kansas and Houston.
