Wright Finds Right Fit

JC guard Delon Wright commits to Utah for the 2013 class

The 2013 Utah recruit class is coming together nicely after JC guard Delon Wright picked the Utes over Pac 12 foes Washington and Washington State.

"Utah is a good place. I like the school and the staff. Coach Slocum is a great guy and we have a great relationship. Utah is the right school for me."

Wright took an official visit recently that helped seal the deal and land his commitment.

"I got to hang out with the team, worked out while I was there, and took a tour of the school. I'm a big football fan and went to the game against BYU. The fans were crazy."
Wright had planned on taking a few more visits before making a decision, but after coming to Salt Lake City, he's done with the process.

"I won't be taking anymore visits and I'll be signing in November." Wright's brother is NBA veteran Dorrell Wright, who has helped guide him throughout the recruiting experience.
"My family has been very supportive and helpful. They're happy with my decision."

The 6-5, 180 pounder is very versatile and could end up at either spot in the back-court.

"I play the off-guard, but can also play the point. I bring a lot of energy and play hard."

Despite Utah's struggles last season, Wright wasn't deterred by the losing and wants to be a part of turning around the program.

"I wasn't focused on them losing. I just want to help rebuild the program and get them back to where they used to be."
