There’s a Great Chance Cedrick Wright Chooses Ohio State

Follow: @Mike_Rockstedt

Earlier this week, I did an article on Gulliver Prep runningback Robert Burns.  His teammate and class of 2016 star also has a strong interest in Ohio State.  Cedrick Wright, a 5-9 safety, has garnered attention from everyone across the country.  He has received offers from some of the top programs nationally, including the likes of Alabama, Ohio State, Clemson, Miami (FL), Call, and USF.  Wright has a strong interest in Ohio State because of a former player he has a strong relationship with, Ryan Shazier.  Him and Shazier have become good friends after playing on the same 7 on 7 team in Florida.  That is not the only reason that Wright is interested in Ohio State, but says that is one of the biggest.

Cedrick Wright Loves Coach Meyer

“One of the biggest reasons that I am so strongly considering Ohio State is because of my good friend Ryan Shazier,” Wright said of his interest in Ohio State.  “”Me and him played for the same seven on seven team down here in Florida and we have become good friends.  He is always telling me about the tradition Ohio State has.  I also am a huge fan of Urban Meyer.  Being from Florida, I would follow the Gators and Meyer, and he always had good teams there.  Then he took a year off, came back to coaching, and Ohio State went undefeated.  He has great success everywhere he goes.”

Urban Meyer has made it a point to recruit the top players in Florida, as he as many connections from his coaching days down there.  He hopes that this can continue with Cedrick Wright.  Wright does not have a favorite or any type of list, but told me that Ohio State is going to be there until the end.  Him and his two teammates, Robert Burns and Joseph Jackson, are hoping to be a package deal to a school.  The plan is for them to all pick the same school, but Wright told me that,” We do need to make the decisions what is best for us.”  He is hoping to make a decision at Nike’s “The Opening,” next summer, which he is going to work for to earn an invite.  When he is not on the football field, you can expect to find Wright on the basketball court.  He enjoys playing basketball for fun, but does not play it as serious as football.  I asked Wright what he would like to say to Buckeyenation, and he said, “Ohio State is really in my mind.  There is a GREAT chance I could come here.  Go Bucks!”  Wright is one of the best safeties in the nation for the class of 2016 and I think Ohio State is in a good position with him.
