Shareece Wright has an opportunity to affix two words to his name with a commitment to Nebraska: immediate impact. While such an event is unlikely after a player's first official visit, no one really knows what's going to happen in recruiting, so says Wright himself. "I don't plan to commit after the visit but hey, anything could happen," he said.
Wright currently holds 14 offers and was a part of the three man excursion from Colton, CA. that took them to California, Oregon State, Oregon and Washington. When looking at what Wright wants to accomplish during his senior campaign, it appears to be all about fine tuning his game for the collegiate level.
"Defensively, I feel alright because I didn't get any touchdowns thrown on me last year. Right now, when I look at my film, I wished I was bigger and stronger and I feel I accomplished that this summer," he said. Shareece currently measures just over six feet even, 187 pounds and reports a 4.53 40 yard dash.
Defensive back isn't the only position that colleges can envision Wright at, however. At Arizona, they woo him as a primarily defensive player but one involved in about fifteen players on offense. At Utah, they could see him as an H-back.
He reports his current favorites (in no particular order) are: Nebraska, LSU, Oregon, Washington, Cal, UCLA and USC. Nebraska offered Wright back in the early spring months and it appears that the attention that they have lavished on him since then hasn't faded. "The relationship has been good so far. I've just got to get out there and experience it from that point of view but from the recruiting process, they've been keeping in contact and sending me mail," he said.
When asked what he knew already about the Cornhuskers, it appears that Shareece is mostly well-versed in the fanaticism that is prevalent in the fan base. "They're crazy about their college football," he said. "They don't have any NFL team so that's their NFL team and they're really supportive. I saw their spring game, they filled the stands for that and that's really important to me. They have good history. They have a legacy to be proud of," he said.
Wright also mentioned that when he attends his little brother's football games and people ask him about where he'll be visiting, whenever the Cornhuskers' name comes up, some eyebrows raise. "Every time I mention Nebraska, everyone seems to like that, all of the older folks who keep up with college football think that's really cool," he said.
In terms of what Shareece is looking to take away from the visit itself, he's going to let UNL sell herself to him. "It's just about getting to meet everyone as far as meeting the coaches, my position coaches, the players and knowing where the place is at," he said.
