Wright Interested By UVa Offer

Cedrick Wright

Cedrick Wright received an offer from UVa this spring and is eager to learn more about the Cavaliers. The 2016 safety out of Miami (Fla.) Gulliver Prep discusses what he knows about the Wahoos and more with Scout.com.

Virginia has been busy in the Sunshine state this spring. Plenty of new offers handed out in South Florida including one to Cedrick Wright, a 2016 safety out of Miami, Florida.

"I didn't meet the recruiter that came, but I found out after practice from my coach that they offered.

"It felt great, because I heard Virginia is a great school. I don't know much, but I watched them on TV a lot."

White watching the Cavaliers play on television, Wright was able to see junior safety Anthony Harris have a breakout year, securing the most interceptions this season. Along with Harris' performance, the Gulliver prep standout points to a big reason why UVa interests him.

"I like the defensive coordinator (Jon Tenuta) and how he uses the safety. That is what stood out to me."

Although, he is still trying to learn about UVa, he will have some help. "My coach went to UVa," he said. Wright's teammate, Robert Burns, who was also offered by Virginia this spring, told Scout.com that his coach's office is surrounded by pictures of his time at Virginia.

Virginia will definitely be on Wright's mind every time he goes into that office, but he has plenty of other offers to keep him thinking until he makes his decision. The 5-foot-11, 190 pounder holds offers from: Alabama, Clemson, Miami, Ohio State, Tennessee, West Virginia, just to name a few.

"It's a blessing of course," Wright said. "It makes you feel like one of the elite players, but at the same time it makes you more humble and makes you want to get better."

The 2016 prospect still maintains no favorites and is excited to hit the road this summer to check in on 30 schools.

"I don't really have a top five or anything right now. I don't really have anyone standing out because I am not focused on recruiting. I am more focused on playing and offers are going to come. I am just going to continue to work hard."

And that is exactly what he plans to do in the off season.

"I feel like I have the physical attributes, but I need to take up more leadership and take control of my team more. I can get better on man-to-man coverage."
