"The game was crazy," Wright said of the No. 1 vs. No. 2 showdown. "It was just wild and I loved it. I knew it was going to be crazy, but the people were even louder than expected."
Wright (6-1, 210, 4.55) is from St. Thomas Aquinas – the same high school as former OSU safety Nate Salley. He is ranked as the No. 13 safety in the country and is known as a big hitter.
His high school team is still alive in the Florida playoffs with an 11-1 record. Thus far in 2006, Wright has three interceptions, 35 tackles and three blocked punts. He scored a touchdown on one of his blocked punts.
As a junior in 2005, he had six interceptions, 60 tackles, 10 tackles-for-loss and three blocked punts.
In addition to OSU, Wright says he is considering "Florida and USC."
But when we caught up with him – while he was still on his OSU visit Sunday night – Wright said he was getting a very good vibe from the Buckeyes.
"I love it here, man," he said. "I'm in awe of this place. It's like I can live here. I leave (Monday) morning and I don't think I want to."
Did Wright give the OSU coaches a verbal commitment this weekend?
"No, I haven't given a commitment," he said. "But I'm here with the coaches right now."
Wright was being hosted by OSU freshman safety Anderson Russell.
"He's real cool," Wright said. "He's from the South too – he's from Georgia and he's just a good kid to talk to about this place and what it's like being here."
Wright will play in the Army All-American Bowl, but will likely wait until signing day to announce his decision.
"Yeah, probably signing day," he said.
