Farrell star athlete Kyi Wright becomes the latest football player to cut down his long list of scholarship offers.
This evening, Wright released his list of his top three schools and it’s good news for Pitt.
Wright says that the three schools he’ll be focusing on are: Pitt, Wisconsin and North Carolina. Prior to his announcement, PSN talked with Wright and asked him about these schools and why they are his finalists.
North Carolina: “When I went down there it really was a great visit and had a great feel to it. It’s just a school where I feel I can get a great education as well as get better in football.”
Wisconsin: “I like their coaching staff. I feel like in their system, I have the potential to be a great player for them. How they’re describing things to me, they want to use me like TJ and JJ Watt when they were both at Wisconsin.”
Pitt: “With them being the first school to offer me, they showed that they were the first school to believe in me. Also, I’ve built a great relationship with their coaching staff. All as far as education, they have a great program in the field that I want to major in (physical therapy).”
Now that he’s down to three schools, what’s next for Wright?
Wright says that he hasn’t made official visits to any of these schools but would like to do so before the summer is over with. Wright has the physical ability to play different positions in college and tells me that both Wisconsin and North Carolina are recruiting him to play linebacker while Pitt is telling him he would be “a big athlete that can play multiple positions.”
