Manuel Wright Interview

At 6-foot-5 and 305 pounds, Wright is one of the nation's elite defensive line prospects. He received an in-home visit from UM coach Randy Shannon on Thursday.

"I'm still about 95-percent sure I'm going to SC," Wright said on Sunday afternoon. "I might take a trip out to the Gators next week to see what they're talkin about."

"He came by and talked to me and my family," he said. "He's a nice guy and had a lot of good things to say, but I'm not about to wait around for two years. I want to play right now."

So how much ground did the Hurricanes make up?

"He really didn't change my mind," he said. "I'm still looking at Miami a little, and Florida, but I'm still leaning to SC."
