Wright Focused on Three Schools

Connecticut's Isaiah Wright spoke with Scout about the top three schools in his sights and two visits on the horizon. The three-star receiver recently took visits to Rutgers and Boston College with another college trip coming up this week.

West Hartford (Conn.) Kingswood Oxford School Upper receiver Isaiah Wright has two more visit to take before he starts thinking decision, and three schools are at the center of his college search.

The three-star receiver said he has an informal top three of Rutgers, Boston College and Ohio State, with his next visit to see the Eagles Friday.

“I’m going to make my decision before my season starts, so I’m not worried about it,” Wright said. “After I’ve been to all of the colleges, I’ll be starting to make that decision.”

Wright visited Rutgers last month and has a visit to Ohio State planned for April.

“Anybody would be excited to visit Ohio State,” Wright said. “They just won the national championship, so for them to show interest is a big honor. I’m pretty excited to go see what they’re about and see what their coaches are about.”

Wright saw Rutgers last month on a personal junior day with the coaching staff.

“I like Rutgers because the coaches are very genuine,” he said. “It’s not hard to connect with those kinds of people, and they’re very welcoming. That’s definitely something you’d want to surround yourself around. Every time I go there, they make me feel like I’m a part of the team.”

Rutgers hosted Wright after it moved wide receivers coach Ben McDaniels to offensive coordinator and tight ends coach Anthony Campanile to the receiver position.

“We’re all good,” he said. “Their first receivers coach is now the offensive coordinator, so I like that. I talk to Camp and we’re building a relationship as well and going from there.”

Wright said he is equally close with Boston College’s staff and coach Steve Addazio, where he returns Friday.

“BC has a top education rate, so that’s always a good factor,” Wright said. “They have a lot of alumni in the network, so that’s something impressive to think about if I were to go there. Their coaches, as well, are very genuine. They’re good people. They really made me feel important there and showed me they want me to be there.”
