"Coach Richman is the NDSU coach that came to the school yesterday and he offered me a scholarship," Hopkins small forward Simon Wright said to the BisonReport. "We met at my school and it was just coach Richman, me and my mother. He was just telling us how he's very excited about me and talking about the school and answering any questions me or mother had while he was talking. He told me he wanted to offer me as he loves that I can play and defend multiple positions and how I can compete. He said the most impressive thing about me is that I don't care who gets the credit, I just want to."
Getting an offer from the Bison of North Dakota State carries weight with the Minnesota forward.
"I mean obviously it meant a lot getting another division one offer as they are a very good team," Wright explained to the BisonReport. "They've put up five straight 20 win seasons and I'm very blessed and lucky to receive an offer from such a strong program. I've never visited NDSU, but hopefully I will sometime soon and I'll get up and see Fargo. I'm definitely going to take it into consideration because they have such a strong program running right now and they recruit guys like me."
Wright also grabbed an offer from Furman yesterday.
"Their coaches called me right after my meeting with coach Richman and they offered," Wright told the BisonReport. "He said basically the same thing that NDSU said. How they loved how I play and how they can't put a number or certain position on me. They love ow I try to do everything to win as well. Honestly, location isn't that big for me. It's all about finding the right fit. Whether that be in the Midwest, East Coast or West Coas, it really doesn't matter to me."
The Hopkins forward continues to take recruiting one step at a time.
"Right now, I'm holding offers from North Dakota State, North Dakota and Furman. The past couple of days, I've received texts/calls from Northeastern, West Point, San Diego, Wright State, Green-Bay and Belmont. No one is really standing out yet, but I'm sure once I take some visits, things will start sorting out."
