The 6-foot-1, 180-pound Wright was presented with his U.S. Army game jersey Thursday, and afterward spoke about is meaning, and outlined how his official visits will envelop the Jan. 7 all-star game in San Antonio.
"Notre Dame is definitely serious," Wright said. "That's one of my top schools. I'm taking an official there so, obviously, that's one of the schools I'm considering."
Like the U.S. Army game, Wright said he grew up watching plenty of Notre Dame games on television. He is being recruited by assistant Bob Diaco, and he knows about the football tradition and academic prowess.
However, he doesn't know much else, and is curious to see the historic campus, the football facilities and meet with the coaches and players. The Irish also have done a good job of showing Wright plenty of interest, and he believes he is a priority in the 2012 class.
"I definitely want to see what Notre Dame has to offer," Wright said. "I want to see, ultimately, what I'm going to be getting into when I'm there."
And while that was once a dream for Wright, just being in the game will be special.
"The Army game has been around for so long and it's a game I've been watching since I was a kid," Wright said. "It's something I wanted to be a part of since I was a young boy. I definitely want to see the competition out there, and I definitely want to go against guys that are as good as the ones playing in this game."
