Notre Dame Recruiting: Irish Working Hard on 2012 CB Yuri Wright

Christopher ChavezAnalyst IISeptember 14, 2016

New Jersey cornerback Yuri Wright could soon be nearing an end to his recruiting process as he cuts down and visits schools in the upcoming weeks. On Monday afternoon, Wright tweeted that Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly was at his home for a visit. He will have an official visit to South Bend on the weekend of December 16 before he possibly makes a decision. 

Wright openly spoke about his recruiting process after receiving his jersey to participate in the Army All-American game in San Antonio. He noted that there is a second visit to Colorado set for this weekend, and that next week he will check out Notre Dame. Georgia is a school that is still in play and he said that they were the most aggressive, so he was inclined to lean toward them. Nothing is concrete yet. 

One downside to Notre Dame's possible pitch to Wright is the fact that he said his dream school has always been Michigan. He has yet to visit there and plans to do so very soon. There are a lot more schools in play than most believe. There was speculation that his list was down to two, but the Don Bosco cornerback still has plans of visiting other schools, like Rutgers, 

Most players from Don Bosco did not visit any schools in season and will be taking care of the process as the winter comes along. As for Wright, it is wide open for anyone right now. Notre Dame has made him a priority, and hopefully their campus and appeal for academics will be enough to boost them higher on his list as it gets cut down.
