The Michigan Wolverines are among the seven finalists for 2021 four-star cornerback Ceyair Wright, he announced on Twitter last night.
December 24, 2020
The 6-foot-1, 175-pounder from Los Angeles also included Notre Dame, USC, Nebraska, Arizona State, Stanford and Oregon in his top list.
Wright took a visit to Ann Arbor this fall for the Wisconsin game, joining a handful of other top players in both the 2021 and 2022 class. After that trip, he told Maize n Brew he had an “amazing” time and that Michigan was “super high” on his list.
247Sports’ Greg Biggins (FREE) caught up with Wright shortly after he released his top seven list last night and spoke a bit more about what he likes about Michigan.
“I had a great visit to Michigan in November and it really opened up my eyes. I was there for a game weekend and even though we couldn’t watch from the stands, I still was able to get a feel for how much passion and energy the fan base has there for Michigan football.
“Michigan is a great academic fit and I like their style of defense. They play a lot of man coverage and leave their guys on an island out there and I like that. David Long is from Loyola and he always talks up Michigan and I can see why after my visit.”
Even though he has always had good things to say about Michigan, I still believe the Wolverines are still trailing USC in this recruitment. Even though Michael Zordich and company aren’t officially out of the running, it may be best to take a peak at the transfer portal for help in the secondary moving forward, if they haven’t done so already. Wright announces his commitment on Jan. 2, so we will soon know which route the Wolverines will officially go moving forward.
Wright is the No. 6 cornerback, No. 8 player in California and No. 77 overall player in the 2021 class on 247Sports’ composite.
