2019 DB Wright: USC just reached out, they like my film
Javin Wright is a long and quick defensive back who is projected to play either cornerback or safety at the next level.
And the senior from Hamilton HS in Chandler, Ariz. is projected to do so at a high level. He’s widely considered to be one of the best defensive backs in the Grand Canyon State.
In the summer, Wright narrowed his choices down to Arizona State, Nebraska, UCLA and Washington. Each school has a compelling reason for being on his list.
If he picks Arizona State, Wright becomes the hometown hero. Picking Nebraska would mean he follows in the footsteps of his father, Toby Wright. UCLA would mean an opportunity to make a mark on a young team in a massive media market. Washington could groom him to be a leader on one of the best defenses in the country.
USC might pushing to be considered as well. The Trojans recently made contact with Wright.
“I actually just started talking to (USC) about a week ago,” Wright told USC247.com “They just reached out to me. They said they were watching my film and that they really liked me.”
Wright isn’t sure who he spoke too and the Trojans haven’t yet put on a full court press to sign him. If that did happen, Wright would welcome it.
“They would jump pretty far up my list,” Wright said when asked what a scholarship offer from USC would mean.
The 6-foot-2, 170-pound prospect has a few reasons for being so high on USC.
“USC is a powerhouse obviously, they’re always in the top 25,” Wright said of the Trojans. “They have good players, a good coaching staff.”
He also says his first visit to a college campus as a football recruit was to USC. He believes that visit was two years ago and he was impressed with he campus.
Wright plans to make a commitment after the football season and sign in December. When asked about schools outside of his top 4 that could be in contention (outside of USC), he mentioned Oregon.
