SCPrepNation.com recently spoke with athlete, Nagui Wright, to see how things have been going as of late. And according to the two-way star, things have been going pretty well early on. "Everything is going good," Wright told SCPrepNation.com. "Just trying to get ready for next season; stuff like that. I'm really looking to have a break-out year this fall."
Nagui had a limited amount of touches on the offensive side of the ball last season. But the 2010 prospect simply made the most of his opportunities whenever he had the ball in his hands. In '08, the 5-11, 180 pound athlete rushed for nearly 500 yards on just 76 totes, and scored 11 touchdowns. He also caught 16 passes out of the backfield for 150 yards. Defensively, the Woodland High star produced solid numbers on the playing field from his defensive back position as well. Last fall, he recorded 57 tackles, and broke up 6 passes for the Wolverines.
Nagui also made his mark on special teams, fielding kickoffs and punts for Woodland. As a punt returner, he averaged 18 yards a return, and took one of them back for a score. As for kickoffs, opposing teams rarely booted the ball his direction… However though, he did manage to get his hands on three of them, and simply made his opponents pay for their mistakes. Wright chalked up 128 yards on just 3 touches, and took one of the kicks back for a score
Wright's numbers may not jump out at you, but his versatility simply speaks high volume. And apparently it's been loud enough to where several big-time programs have been flooding his mailbox with letters of interest. "I've been letters from a lot of different school," the versatile athlete said. "I've been getting stuff from Western Kentucky, Georgia, Michigan, LSU, Notre Dame, and Tennessee; schools like that."
"Georgia has been sending me the most mail out of everybody," the 2010 star added. "They send me letters nearly everyday. They have been keeping me informed of everything that been going on with their program."
Wright also informed us that Western Kentucky has been expressing lots of interest in him early on. And although he doesn't know a great deal about their program, he is very interested in learning more about them.
Wright is currently in the process of mapping out his plans for the spring/summer. He plans to attend a number of camps/combines, in order to showcase his skills amongst the best.
We will certainly keep you posted on how things progress with this talented prospect from out of the 2010 recruiting class, so stay tuned for much more…
