Wright Targets New Decision Time-frame

Don Bosco Prep (Ramsey, N.J.) cornerback Yuri Wright previously planned on making his decision at the U.S. Army All-American game, but that may no longer be the case. Wright spoke with ScarletReport.com about a possible change in decision date as well as cutting his list and where Rutgers stands.

Yuri Wright previously expressed an intent to announce his college decision at the U.S. Army All-American game in January, but told ScarletReport.com that it may no longer be the case.

Currently in the process of cutting his list, a commitment may come in August.

"I want to do it before the season," he said. "I need to cut down the schools first."

Wright said he is committed to his senior season at Don Bosco Prep (Ramsey, N.J.) and is devoted to another championship ring. His decision will be before or after the season.

"It all depends on when I feel comfortable," he said. "It would be good to get it done soon, but I may not feel ready yet."

At the least, Wright will cut his list to between two and four schools by the start of the season and make his decision with hats on the table at the All-American game.

In the meantime, cutting his list is becoming much more problematic than he thought.

"It's really challenging," Wright said. "There are so many schools and I have to decide what schools are the best and take out the ones that are less interested. I didn't know how many scholarships I would have when I first became a recruit. It's harder than I expected."

Wright said no school will be safe when he cuts his list, but that Colorado stands out right now.

"I have a good relationship with [assistant coach Greg Brown] and I liked a lot of what I saw when I visited," he said.

Rutgers is not officially safe, Wright said, but is in good position to be among his final two or four schools.

"I like Rutgers," Wright said. "[assistant coach Jeff] Hafley is a real cool guy. I would enjoy being coached by him."

When asked about where Notre Dame stands, Wright said contact is a lot slower than it used to be. Scout.com previously reported that he had a strong interest in the Irish.

"We don't really talk much right now," he said. "I don't know about them."
