Yuri Wright Commits To Colorado, Says 'No' To Notre Dame, Rutgers

The Colorado Buffaloes landed a second four-star cornerback recruit this week. After picking up Kenneth Crawley, the Buffs have added Yuri Wright on Tuesday:

Wright had been recruited by Notre Dame, Rutgers and Michigan. However, Michigan did pull its offer to Wright recently, and it may have been a result of Wright's improper Twitter comments. That is certainly a red flag for some schools, but hopefully Jon Embree and his staff will be able to keep Wright in check when he arrives in Boulder.

Wright, a 6-foot-2, 185-pound recruit from Don Bosco Prep in New Jersey, should be an immediate impact player for the Buffs as a freshman. He and Crawley could provide a solid foundation for the secondary over the next few years.SB Nation Recruiting is already high on Wright's potential:

Wright has prototypical size for the position. He's long and strong, and his speed is adequate. He's extremely versatile, and should have no problem playing both man and zone coverage. And he's not afraid to be physical with opposing receivers. There are very few weaknesses in Wright's game that can't be fixed with some coaching and experience.

National Signing Day is Feb. 1.
