Wright believes USC will win out

Demetrius Wright from Corona High is one of the most physical and talented cornerbacks on the West Coast, and has an impressive list of scholarship offers. USC, Tennessee, Florida, California, Oklahoma, Arizona and Washington are among the schools pursuing Wright.

But after official visits to Washington (9/5) and Tennessee (9/12), he has three schools he's favoring, but said he‘s still considering all of the schools that have offered.

Wright said USC, Tennessee and Washington are all even and plans to take another trip to Knoxville on his own dime.

"I had a great visit to Tennessee and will visit there again," Wright said. "Everything blew me away when I visited. The fans, Vol Walk, the atmosphere and the coaching staff all impressed me."

At one point early on in the recruiting process Wright said USC was his top school, but that was before his trips to Washington and Tennessee.

We asked Wright what it's going to take for the Trojans to sign him?

"Keep being USC," said Wright. "They have a great defense. I talk to Brennan Carroll every week and we talk about how I can come in and change things, because I'm a lock down cornerback. SC is a powerhouse and they are going to win out. They are not going to lose another game this season."

Wright hasn't received an offer from UCLA and the Bruins aren't recruiting him, which will surprise many. But there's a good reason UCLA isn't seeking him.

"I told them early on I wasn't interested," said Wright.

Two week ago Wright was in attendance at the USC vs. Washington State and plans on being at the Coliseum on Oct. 24 when the Trojans face Oregon State.

This week Wright's focus is on his football team, not recruiting, and their game with Long Beach Poly on Saturday. It's an opportunity for Corona to get back on track after a 50-43 loss to Norco.

The Panthers are 1-3 with losses to Mission Viejo (14-45), Arlington (23-28) and Norco. Their one win was a 34-3 victory over Chino.

SCPlaybook will talk to Wright Saturday night after Corona's game with Poly.
