Four-star cornerback Ceyair Wright completes USC football’s ridiculous DB class

USC football got the All-American Bowl’s Declaration Day special off to a bright start thanks to Ceyair Wright.

The four-star cornerback out of Loyola picked up the USC hat and committed to the Trojans on Saturday.

He made his pick while sitting on an elaborate gold throne in style.

Now, USC is just waiting to learn if Korey Foreman, the No. 1 recruit in the land, will make the day even sweeter.

Ceyair Wright is the best of a loaded USC football DB haul

Wright ranks No. 77 nationally in the 247Sports composite for the class. He is the No. 6-rated cornerback and the No. 8 player in the state of California. He is now the second-highest rated player in the class for the Trojans.

The timing of his commitment couldn’t be better. USC just lost Olaijah Griffin to the NFL Draft on New Year’s Day. Wright could be in line to be an immediate contributor as the Trojans look to fill the gap left by Griffin.

Like Griffin, the 6-foot-1, 175-pound Wright has good length to go along with blazing speed. In 2019, he had 34 tackles, an interception and four pass breakups with Loyola while also serving as a receiver and kick returner.

Donte Williams, who was just promoted to associate head coach, has earned that title with some exceptional work on the recruiting trail alongside safeties coach Craig Naivar. Together, they have compiled one of the better defensive back recruiting hauls in memory for USC.

On Early Signing Day, the Trojans signed four-star cornerback Prophet Brown, four-star athlete Anthony Beavers Jr., four-star safety Xamarion Gordon and four-star athlete Jaylin Smith. The Trojans are also adding former four-star safety Xavion Alford as a transfer from Texas.
