Wright is solid prospect

Murray high should have a strong defense up the middle this season as well as a nice running game behind Garret Wright and Robert Olive. Wright talked with SKP about his game.

Murray high should have a strong defense up the middle this season as well as a nice running game behind Garret Wright and Robert Olive. Wright talked with SKP about his game.

The overall talent level of Kentucky is higher than normal this season and looks to be on the uptick. Evidence of this level of talent is with the overall depth in the class of 2011, where players like Garret Wright get overlooked.

Wright was offensive line MVP at the NUC in Nashville in April. Wright showed his strength by benching 185 pounds 24 times. It's clear that's his strength, but he has others.

"I think my size (6-foot-3, 295-pounds) and my aggressiveness are some of my strengths," said Wright. "The main thing I want to get better is my conditioning," he continued.

Wright was apart of a very successful Murray team last year that went 12-1, falling to eventual state champion Fort Campbell in the playoffs. Wright felt pretty positively about this past season and the work he's put in since then.

"I think I had a good season, but I plan on having a lot better season this year," he said. "I went to several camps and combines this year and I felt pretty good with my performance," he said.

At this stage, he holds no offers, but his home town Murray State Racers are interested as well as the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers.

"I'm looking for a good environment and a good education," said Wright.

Before Garret makes his decision, he will fight with his teammates to reach their main goal. "I plan on winning a state championship this season," said Wright.
