One thing you learn in the business of recruiting is that things are always in flux.
Farrell linebacker and big Pitt target Kyi Wright was scheduled to visit the Panthers this weekend but there was a change in plans.
Today, Wright and his teammate, cornerback Kobe Hilton, made a trip to the South Side to visit with the Pitt coaching staff.
After his stay at Pitt, Wright returned home for a team workout and then spoke to Pittsburgh Sports Now about his day.
Unlike some recruits, visiting the Pitt facilities isn’t something new for Wright so I asked him at this point in his recruitment, what’s the main reason for going to Pitt?
“Just to keep trying to build a better relationship with the coaching staff there. I feel that our relationship is pretty good and I just wanted to keep it going,” said Wright.
“We just talk about things going on in both of our lives. I talk to the coaches about how school is going, they ask about my mom and I ask them about how their families are doing, things like that.”
While at Pitt today, Wright met with Pat Narduzzi, Rob Harley and Tim Salem. Once again, Wright left the day feeling how much of a priority he is for the Panthers staff.
“They express to me a lot how much of a priority I am for them by both action and by word,” said Wright.
Wright (6-foot-3, 245 pounds) tells me that he might return to Pitt on Sunday with a friend but isn’t sure about that.
Finally, I asked Wright if in his head, he’s starting to have an idea of where he’s going to commit to and does he feel his recruitment is close to winding down?
“I’m almost to that point but I will take a few more visits this summer and then maybe I’ll decide from there.”
As far as upcoming visits, Wright plans on going to Wisconsin and has visits planned to Wake Forest, Duke and North Carolina.
