One of Colorado’s best football athletes, Josh Wright of Overland, had a very strong senior campaign on both sides of the ball. As a running back Wright averaged over eight yards a carry on the way to 1,100 yards and 11 scores for his playoff squad. Wright, an All-State caliber corner, had another solid season on D with two interceptions and four passes defended. Further, Wright is one of the state’s most explosive kick returners averaging over 33 yards per return.
These numbers as well as Wright’s ability to produce in all three aspects of the game have made the 2015 prospect a very intriguing recruit that is gaining very significant DII attention. Wright checked in with PrepColorado as his recruitment is heating up. Fort Lewis, CSU-Pueblo, Washburn, Fort Hays, Eastern New Mexico, and Western State all are Wright’s radar. This weekend Wright will travel to Fort Lewis for his first official visit. Of the schools Fort Lewis, Eastern New Mexico and Washburn have made offers. The schools are split on what side of the ball they want Wright to play on. As for Wright he just wants to play and has no preference at what position.
Wright is a great get for the program he opts for. Beyond his athleticism, made up of quickness and versatility, Wright is a football player who is willing to tackle, block and do the dirty work necessary for the success of his team. Wright due to his well- rounded game, could contribute early for a program, especially as a special team’s performer.
