"I was able to tour Minnesota's campus and facilities, plus meet the rest of the coaching staff for the Gophers," JUCO OL Garrison Wright said to GopherDigest. "I liked the campus a lot. The city feel of the campus was something you don't see many other places. The facilities were really nice too. Both of the locker rooms were great and the stadium had a great feel to it. My host for the visit was Gaelin Elmore and he seemed like a great guy. He told me nothing but good things about Minnesota."
Wright spent a lot of time with Minnesota's head coach.
"I got to be around Coach Claeys a lot, which was really nice," Wright explained. "He said he thought I had a good opportunity to come in and play right away. My parents loved the visit to Minnesota too. They had a great time and were impressed by everyone. My favorite part of the visit was getting to know the staff as there's a lot of great guys there."
Wright will visit one more school before making a decision.
"My interest in Minnesota is high after visiting this weekend," Wright told GopherDigest. "TCU just offered me a few minutes ago and I'll be taking an official visit down there starting on Friday. I'm planning on having a decision by Monday at the latest too. I know that Coach Claeys is going to be by my house on Wednesday for an in-home visit as well. I want to thank all the Minnesota fans for the continued support as a lot of fans have reached out to me via social media and it means a lot."
