Wright Tabs One School For Possible Official

While Nebraska's need for secondary help is glaring, one thing that no school can get along without is athletes. That's just what the Cornhuskers are hoping to acquire in Colton, California's Shareece Wright. We were able to catch up to Wright in order to find out about new offers, his thoughts on Nebraska and if he's planned any official visits as of yet.

Nebraska needs help in the secondary.  It's a theme that has been bandied about many times over this recruiting process and probably will for a while now.  While it has been accepted that the Cornhuskers are in dire needs of secondary talent and depth, they have their eyes on a California native who could provide them with excellent athleticism and a knack for his position.

Colton's Shareece Wright would make an excellent addition to any team's recruiting class and recently, two new teams threw their hats into the ring.  "I just got an offer today from Kansas and got one from Utah about two weeks ago," he said.  Wright claims 10-15 total offers from the two aforementioned schools along with Oregon, Washington, LSU, Nebraska, UTEP, Boise State and Arizona.

Wright is currently involved in some academic work but once he finishes, he plans on taking a bit of a road trip.  "I don't have any visits scheduled but when I'm done with summer school, I'm planning on taking a couple unofficials.  We're going to head to Washington and Oregon for sure and we're going to head out to LSU, I believe and California," he said.

Nebraska fans might be wondering where they fit into Wright's plans.  Upon discussing possible visits, Wright mentioned that the only place that was very likely to receive one at this point was Nebraska.  He went on to talk about their academic programs and support along with the record-smashing spring games.  "Nebraska was the first team to offer me a scholarship and they showed a lot of love when they came out and called us," he said.

In terms of immediate favorites, Wright said, "I like Washington a lot and Arizona a lot and I like UCLA."
