Wright gets his Wish

Dave Wannstedt coached a national championship defense at Miami. Those Hurricane teams were made up of players with speed to burn. Today, Wannstedt and his Pitt Panthers received a commitment from a player with Florida speed but he grew up 10 minutes from the school instead of the "Sunshine State". Former Perry star Aundre Wright was offered and accepted a scholarship today from the Panthers.

Pitt usually has to go to Florida to try and recruit speed, but not with Aundre Wright. The former Perry High star from Pittsburgh, Pa., who is now playing post-graduate ball at Milford Academy in New Berlin, N.Y. has game changing speed (4.34).

Wright was attending Milford with the hopes of earning a scholarship from his hometown school. Wright told Scout.com back in August when we visited that was his goal.

"I plan on going to Pitt, that's my goal and that's why I'm here," Wright said.

Today according to sources Wright received his wish as he was offered and accepted the offer from Pitt. The offer is contingent upon his academic success while at Milford Academy. Wright is ranked as a three-star prospect by Scout.com
