Two experts in the 247Sports Crystal Ball predict CB Ceyair Wright to USC football.
USC football is now the favorite to land Loyola cornerback Ceyair Wright.
This week, two different experts from 247Sports put in predictions in favor of the Trojans. Both Greg Biggins and Brandon Huffman think Wright will sign with USC.
If USC can add Wright, they would bolster an already-loaded defensive back recruiting class.
USC football is in good position to pick up four-star CB Ceyair Wright.
Wright is an elite recruit, not only in California but in Southern California.
The 6-foot-1, 175-pound athlete is ranked No. 71 in the 247Sports composite. He checks in at No. 7 in California. Among cornerbacks, Wright is rated No. 5.
Biggins, who added his projection in the 247Sports Crystal Ball, credited Wright for having track speed “that translates well to the football field.”
Wright attended USC’s Elite Camp last June and picked up an offer from then-Trojans cornerbacks coach Greg Burns and grad assistant Chris Hawkins. Neither are at USC anymore. In fact, Hawkins is fighting to get Wright to ASU, where he is now the cornerbacks coach.
If Biggins and Huffman are correct, USC’s new cornerbacks coach Donte Williams has continued to pursue Wright and has made good progress in that regard too.
Williams and the rest of USC’s recruiting staff have already done work in compiling one of the nation’s best defensive back recruiting hauls. It includes four-star cornerback Prophet Brown, four-star safety Xamarion Gordon and four-star athletes Calen Bullock and Anthony Beavers and Jaylin Smith. Each of those players rank in the Top 304 players in the class of 2021.
With those prospects committed, USC has the No. 10 class in the 247Sports composite team rankings. However, they’ve fallen behind Oregon for the top class in the Pac-12. Another Top 100 commit would not go amiss.
