The 6-foot-1, 180-pound Wright, who is rated the No. 4 cornerback in Scout.com's class, is ready to begin his official visit schedule, and it will take him to South Bend, Ind., the weekend of Dec. 16.
But he said Notre Dame is a special situation, and the history and prestige of the school are a big draw.
"Notre Dame real good school," he said. "That's a school I'm really interested in. That's why I'm going to take that official."
Wright said he has been in consistent contract with assistant coach Bob Diaco recently, and he has been explaining to Wright just how much the Irish want him.
"I was speaking to the coach a couple of days ago, and they still have the same interest in me that they had in the beginning," Wright said. "I'm one of their top guys. That was important to hear. That is something that means a lot to me."
Much of Wright's fall was dedicated to the season, which ended Friday when Don Bosco Prep beat Bergen Catholic (Oradell, N.J.) 42-14 in the North Jersey Group IV Non-public title game. It was the Ironmen's sixth straight title.
Wright played a big role as he helped contain junior receiver Jon Tsimis, who beat Wright consistently during a regular season game, but wasn't a factor in the title game. Bergen Catholic went after Wright early, but without much success.
"I expected that because of the success he had last game," Wright said. "They tried but I think I did my job. He didn't get in the end zone. He made a few catches, but that was it."
"I'm ready to go out and start seeing schools," Wright said. "I want to see what some places have to offer. I am really excited to see Notre Dame."
Wright is planning his Notre Dame visit with teammate Elijah Shumate, a four-star safety.
