"One of the best rebounders in the high school game, Wright is a physically gifted big man whose combination of strength, size, and IQ is unmatched in the west coast high school scene right now," Recruiting Analyst Brandon Jenkins said. "Controlling the boards is a priority for him as he fully takes advantage of his massive frame and plays with great aggressiveness when battling inside. His shooting touch has evolved but needs continued work should he want to face consistently out to the arc. He is a high-volume rebounder and smart player with good hands, footwork, and activity level who projects as a productive frontcourt force to be reckoned with for a winning program."
