Vandy to get official visit from Brandan Wright

Brentwood Academy's Brandan Wright, rated as's No. 1 power forward prospect in America, has named the five schools which will receive official visits-- and hometown Vanderbilt is on the list. Wright averaged 24 points as a junior and is rated a 5-star prospect by Scout.

Brandan Wright, a 6-foot-9 power forward out of Nashville (Tenn.) Brentwood Academy, says he's going to take five visits. "I know I'm going to visit Duke, North Carolina, Kentucky, Vanderbilt and Louisville,"'s No. 5 prospect said.

Wright said he's getting close to finalizing some dates. "Actually, I'm having a meeting this week. Me, my mom and coach are going to (tentatively) set them up this week or next."

Hometown Vanderbilt has worked its way onto the list. "They were laying around the whole time but it became realistic to me this summer, being close to home and stuff like that," Wright said of the Commodores. Credit Louisville for also breaking into the Top 5 as Wright previously was thought to be strong on just UNC, Duke and UK.
