Shareece Wright Comes Home From NU With A Smile

As Nebraska welcomed a slew of highly touted recruits especially from the California area, the Cornhuskers knew they had to be ready to show the best of the best why they should come to Lincoln. Shareece Wright was in attendance and had some very interesting things to say about his trip and even let us in on where Nebraska sits on his overall rankings.

Four-star cornerback prospect Shareece Wright came into Lincoln with questions. He left with answers and not just answers, but the ones he wanted. While he did not commit, the visit left Nebraska with a commanding lead for his services. "It puts them at number one. Nobody's shown me what they have and until someone else does, they'll be number one," he said.

When it was game time, Wright found himself hearing his name from the crowd and the defensive back from Colton, California was impressed. "(My favorite part of the game was) the fans for sure, the team played well for the first game. (The fans) are real supportive and they all knew who you were," he said.

Overall, the trip was an eye-opening experience for Wright. "Just getting to know the coaches and the players was the best part. My host was Cortney Grixby and he's a real good player. He plays the same position I play. He showed us around the town, all of the players are really cool. I enjoyed getting to see everything about the university and all their tradition. I could definitely see myself playing for them," he said.

Wright was also somewhat taken aback by the culinary onslaught presented to the recruits. "We ate steak, prime rib, cheesecake, we were all well-fed. You're never going to starve out there," said Wright.

Despite Nebraska's struggles, Wright feels that the game experience given to the youngsters will pay dividends down the road. "I think the boys, a lot of first time players, they got a lot of time and they came out with a win so they get the benefit of the doubt and I feel that I could go to that school and help them out," he said. As far as the other recruits, Wright said, "All the guys liked it, nobody had any complaints."

After taking all of that in, Shareece ranked his visit for us. "It was a nine A ten would've been a commit. It was the way I felt after everything. I felt the coaches were straight forward. The cornerbacks coach (Phil Elmassian), he kept it real with me. He showed me what I'd be doing if I came there along with who would be there when I arrived," he said.

Wright's team had a scrimmage before he left for Lincoln and he felt that he performed rather well. He commented that since he is getting so many accolades and so much attention, he cannot take his position lightly nor blur his focus and prove all of the positive press right.
