Wright shows mutual interest in Pac-12 school
Los Angeles (Calif.) Pacific Hills guard Namon Wright has a laundry list of colleges that he can choose from to continue his basketball career. The question is: Where will Wright end up?
The 2014 recruit has offers from multiple Pac-12 Conference schools, including Arizona State, Oregon, Oregon State, USC and Utah. He also has a number of offers from schools in other conferences, such as Gonzaga, New Mexico State, Oklahoma State and Wisconsin.
When GOAZCATS.com caught up with Wright on Wednesday, he was in the middle of reiterating these offers. He has so many that at one point he forgot who he had already said.
None of the schools that Wright muttered throughout that quote was Arizona. When asked about the program's potential interest, Wright said that the Wildcats have come knocking.
As a matter of fact, when Wright proceeded to check his phone it was Arizona.
"Their coach just called me," Wright told GOAZCATS.com. "He called me just now, I have to call him back."
When asked if there's any mutual interest on his end with UA, Wright said yes.
"I like them a lot," he said. "I think their program fits my game."
Wright scored 23 points in a 79-75 loss to Los Angeles (Calif.) Loyola in a South Bay Classic matchup with fellow four-star recruit and Wildcat target Parker Jackson-Cartwright.
