4-star CB Wright Talks Officials, Timetable

Don Bosco Prep (Ramsey, N.J.) four-star cornerback Yuri Wright said he was planning a visit to Rutgers in the coming days, and he also revealed a pair of schools he plans to make official visits to see. Come inside check out what else the 6-foot-1, 178-pound standout had to say.

Yuri Wright wanted to make a few summer visits in an attempt to narrow his list of schools, but scheduling conflicts didn't allow it to happen.

And while the four-star cornerback from Don Bosco Prep (Ramsey, N.J.) said Rutgers, Georgia, Colorado, Notre Dame, Michigan and California are the schools he is most interested in, he revealed two schools already on his official visit list.

"I'm trying to get some set up," Wright said. "Georgia and Michigan are two I definitely want to go to. Georgia is a school I'm really interested in right now. I'm very high on them. I have a real good relationship with (assistant coach) Scott Lakatos, and I could see myself going there and becoming a real good football player.

"Michigan is the school I wanted to go to my whole life, and I just love the University of Michigan."

Wright is also contemplating official visits to Cal and Rutgers, but the nearby Scarlet Knights may not be as high a priority because he has been to campus so often and speaks with the staff regularly.

"I have a lot of contact with them," Wright said. "I feel the same. I still look at Rutgers as a very good school, and one of the schools definitely on my list. I deal with (assistant coach Jeff) Hafley the most, but I talk to a lot of the coaches."

Wright added he plans on traveling to campus for a practice, perhaps as early as Sunday. The 6-foot-1, 178-pound Wright, who is Scout.com's No. 5-rated cornerback in the class, said three schools continue to show the most interest.

"I only keep in contact with Michigan and coach Lakatos, and coach Hafley," Wright said. "They talk to me a lot through Facebook. I haven't heard from Colorado that much, but I still like Colorado."

Wright added he may also take an official visit to Cal, and Rutgers is another candidate for an official trip.

However, squeezing the visits into a busy fall schedule and with an early January announcement date could prove tricky.

"That is something I am trying to figure out," Wright said. "I have to work around (DBP coach Greg Toal's) schedule. I don't see it happening after (the U.S. Army All-American Bowl). It could happen before that, but if it doesn't, it will happen at the U.S. Army game."
