Sherrod Wright told us after the Michael Jordan Regional All Star game that he had a terrific visit to George Mason, solidifying his decision to play college basketball there next season.

Wright, who also had Southern California, Rutgers, Seton Hall, and St. John's on his list, is a solid guard prospect with size at 6-foot-4.

The question for Wright is how much does he improve his perimeter consistency over the next few months. If he does so, he'll land some decent minutes as a freshman.

George Mason is a program well coached. The coaching staff does a tremendous job in helping their prospects improve. Wright is a player that should thrive at George Mason since he has some versatility in his individual game.

It was the visit that spurred Wright to make a decision in favor of George Mason. "I like Coach (Jim) Larranga and the style of play," said Wright, citing the uptempo conditions he expects to be part of the George Mason season next year.

*Wright averaged over 23 points per game this past season. He was named Mr. Basketball in Section 1 Class AA this season and was MVP of the section tournament. Wright helped the Knights to four-straight section titles.

Wright has always been an effective player taking the ball to the rim, utilizing his size and strength. If he masters the medium range jumpshot around the foul line, he'll be a player George Mason fans will get excited about.
