Wright, a 6-foot-6 forward who has worked his way into Oak Hill’s starting lineup, committed to the Wolverines after head coach Tommy Amaker made a trip to watch him in North Carolina this week.
“I think he’s a forward who can play 2 positions – the 3 and 4,” Oak Hill coach Steve Smith said. “He shoots it well and he can pass it and he’s a good rebounder.
“He can get minutes at all forward spots on the floor.”
The Sterling, Va., native, has a chance to do something that, according to his high school coach, it’s likely no other player in high school basketball history has accomplished. Should Oak Hill win another national title this year, it would be the school’s third consecutive championship, each of which Wright has been a part of.
“I just don’t think anybody’s been on 3 national championship teams in a row,” Smith said.
Wright’s role has expanded at Oak Hill the past three seasons. He came off the bench as a sophomore but earned starter status this year for his ability to rebound the basketball.
