It’s Showtime!

Winston Wright, the 5’10 170 pound Wide Receiver from Savannah, Georgia, is special.  Yes, he is only a 3 star player according to Rivals, ESPN and 247 Sports.  Yes,  he’s only rated as one of the top 80-100 high school players in Georgia this year, but when you watch him on film you tell very quickly that he just has it.  His incredible elusiveness and deceptive speed make him extremely difficult to tackle when he gets his hands on the ball and he has a real knack for finding the endzone.  No one could cover him in high school.

His speed is what really separates him from the competition.  He won two state championships in track this year.  He won the 100m and 200m state championships this year.  In addition, Wright won the Ashley Dearing Award, an award given to the most versatile male athlete in Savannah.

After former Head Coach Dana Holgorsen left West Virginia for Houston, there was some concern that Wright would end up de-committing from WVU and perhaps re-open his recruitment.  However, Neal Brown had also recruited him hard while at Troy and already had a relationship with him so Wright decided to stay.

After losing David Sills V and Gary Jennings to the NFL Draft and Marcus Simms and Dillon Spalding to the Transfer Portal, WVU will be very thin at wide receiver this season.  Inexperienced players will need to step up and contribute.  Winston Wright has everything it takes to be not only a productive player but a real superstar as a Freshman on this year’s team.
