WVU Commit Winston Wright Jr. Weighing Options After Frost Visit

November 28, 2018

Having options in life is never a bad thing. 

Winston Wright Jr.‍, a 3-star (HV Rating: 86.6) wide receiver from Memorial Day School in Savannah, Georgia, is committed to West Virginia but Nebraska is giving him something to think about. The speedy pass-catcher had coach Scott Frost in his high school on Wednesday and the Huskers have his attention. 

I spoke with Wright on Wednesday to see where Nebraska stands in his recruitment, his thoughts on the offense and more. 

Here is the full Q&A:

How would you describe your relationship with the staff?

“I have a good relationship with them because they offered me back when they were at UCF. I have a good relationship with them. It’s pretty close.”

What are your thoughts on their transition from UCF to Nebraska?

“I think they’re a good coaching staff and I knew they’d change the program around wherever they went because they are a good staff.”

What are your thoughts on the offense?

“It’s a good offense for any type of receiver. They are going to get you the ball in space so you can do what you do. It’s like heaven for receivers.”

How were the meetings with Frost?

“I was at school today and he came to sit with me for a minute. We talked and then he went out to eat with my mom and dad. It was good. We just talked about the program and how I can come in and change it, the depth at receiver and what he thinks I can bring to the table.”

What are some of those things you bring to the table?

“I’m fast. When I get the ball in my hands I can do whatever. I can play all over the field.”

Do you guys have an official visit date set up?

“When he (Frost) came, that’s what we were talking about. I’ll go on my official not this weekend but next weekend (Dec. 7).”

What are you excited to see on visit?

“I just want to see the people that interact at the school. The people around the program, the fit, being with the coaches too. That’s pretty much it.”

They are recruiting Georgia hard. What do you think?

“It’s good. They are trying to get the Georgia kids. They have good relationships with them since they were at UCF. It’s a good connection they have.”

Are you planning to sign in December?

“Right now, I don’t know yet. I’m still trying to decide. I will probably push it back to February.”

What are you most looking for in school?

“Just somewhere I can be myself, somewhere I can interact well with the players and people around there. A good relationship with the coaches and I feel comfortable with them. A place I can go in and work plus see myself at for the next four or five years.”
