Wright believes the Coliseum will look better than the Rose Bowl
Stephon Wright is a 6-foot-3, 260-pound defensive tackle from Cathedral HS in Los Angeles who received a scholarship offer from the Trojans after attending a summer camp in 2017.
Months and months after receiving that scholarship offer, and many others, Wright named a top 10. He did that back in March of this year. Arizona, Arizona State, Cal, Colorado, Nebraska, Oklahoma, USC, Utah, Washington and Washington State made the cut. His intention is to eventually settle on a school before signing a letter of intent in December.
That was good news for USC. Wright says the Trojan coaching staff sees him in Rasheem Green’s former role. He also says they compare him to the 2018 number 79 overall pick.
Wright shares a similar interest in USC. He says he plans to be at every USC home game this year, unless that game conflicts with a scheduled official visit. He hasn’t set any of those trips (although he says he plans to this football season), so right now his schedule is wide open to USC home game after USC home game.
He definitely enjoyed his time at the Coliseum this weekend. The stadium construction had him feeling goosebumps.
“I pictured it looking better than the Rose Bowl at night,” Wright told usc247.com when asked about the Coliseum construction. “That’s what I’m thinking.”
He was also impressed with what was happening below the cranes on the football field.
“I liked it,” Wright said when asked about his time at the USC-UNLV game. “It was pretty good to see a new squad and the quarterback and stuff like that. I think they looked good.”
The high school football star was also able to offer an honest assessment of USC’s play.
“It started off slow and shaky but you could tell they started coming together more in the second half,” Wright said.
No matter what happens during any USC game this year, Wright will always be interested in potentially playing for the Trojans. He says nothing that happens with USC’s record could change his opinion of that program.
That’s why he’s already certain USC will be one of his five official visits.
