Major Wright discusses Notre Dame's No.13 ranked safety prospect, Major Wright of St. Thomas Aquinas high school (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.) is a big-time playmaker and he being recruited by the top programs in the country. It won't matter which school he chooses, he'll have an opportunity to compete for playing time as a true freshman.

Major Wright (6-foot-2, 200 pounds) has the ability to press for early playing time, and the Irish will have a couple open spots in 2007 as they will need to replace both starting safeties. Major is a primary target for the Irish staff, but recent reports have not listed the Irish among the schools he is considering.

"Yes sir," Wright replied when asked whether Notre Dame was still in contention for his signature. "I don't know what people are saying, I think they just put want the want. It's Notre Dame, Ohio State, Florida, Miami and Georgia."

"I haven't set any [official] visits. I'm just concentrating on our season. I'll probably wait until the end of the season. I'll probably start to schedule my visits when play-offs start."

Last season Notre Dame signed two of Wright's teammates, Sam Young and Dan Wenger. If the Irish coaches intend on luring Major north, they will need to secure one of his five visits in order to have a legitimate chance to sign him.

"Coach Parmalee came to my school today," Wright explained when asked if he had been in contact with the Notre Dame coaches. "Coach Weis called me a week ago. We had a good conversation. He told me that they're doing very well. I watched [Young] play Georgia Tech. He did very good. For a freshman, I felt like he played very well.

St. Thomas has also been playing very well, despite a set back last weekend.

"We're doing pretty good. We're 5-1," Wright said. "We lost last week to Deerfield, so we're trying to bounce back and get everything right. It was very close 18-15. We had a chance to tie the game but we missed a 56-yard field goal.

"I'm doing pretty good. I'm trying to maintain and stay healthy. I'm just trying to stay on top of things and go out and have fun. Right now I have about 25 tackles and two interceptions and two blocked punts for touchdowns." Top Stories
