Since West Virginia made their offer, a slew of offers have came in from college football powerhouses. Some of these include Alabama, Georgia, Oklahoma, LSU along with others. While speaking wiht WVU Wire, Wright said he’s still considering staying in his home state for college.
“I’m considering everything at the moment,” Wright said.
All things considered it’s going to be very difficult to land Wright. With this type of competition, Dana Holgerson has it work cut out for him when it comes to landing this five-star prospect. These are the kind of in-state prospects Holgorsen needs to land to help the Mountaineers take their next step and contend for a Big 12 title.
West Virginia has five commits in the 2019 recruiting class as of now.
Stay tuned as details emerge with West Virginia recruiting.
