Wright Stars in Rutgers Skills Camp

West Hartford (Conn.) Kingswood-Oxford receiver Isaiah Wright spoke with Scout about his stellar Rutgers camp performance and the latest in his recruitment.

West Hartford (Conn.) Kingswood-Oxford three-star receiver Isaiah Wright lit up the Rutgers practice fields Saturday as one of the camp season’s top overall performers.

Wright went into the camp with a positive impression of Rutgers. He left with a better feeling.

“I like Rutgers a lot but right now I don’t have any tops,” Wright said. “It’s just the simple fact that I’m still searching and researching. I like Rutgers a lot but there are no leaders.”

Wright enjoyed the role of a wanted man against the top cornerbacks at the camp. The coaching staff frequently matched him up with other top prospects like new commit Damon Hayes.

“It was good at the camp,” Wright said. “I actually had a lot of fun. I learned some new things, and it was good to see some familiar faces. I’ve been to Rutgers a lot of times but I haven’t really gotten the chance to work with the coaches. I was kind of itching for that. I finally got it. It felt good.”

Offensive coordinator Ben McDaniels spoke in-depth with Wright during the camp. Wright also worked under receivers coach Anthony Campanile.

“I’ve always thought the same thing of coach McDaniels and coach Campanile,” Wright said. “They’re genuine people, and they bring a lot to the program.”

Rutgers brought out its x-factor as well when it came to wide receiver coaches. Rising senior Leonte Carroo worked closely with the group of top prospects.

“Leonte is my bro,” Wright said. “I did an overnight stay at Rutgers, and we’ve stayed in touch ever since then. They’re like a family here.”

Wright remains set on a summer commitment. He and his mother will visit Maryland and could also see Ohio State before a final decision.
