October 1 Update

It’s been a huge last several months for Champlin Park guard McKinley Wright.  The junior led Net Gain 17U in scoring this off-season, has grabbed five major conference offers, entered the Rivals150, and recently took a visit to the University of Minnesota.

“It was great,” Wright said of his time on the Minnesota campus two weekends ago.  “I really like how intense they are in practice and the support they show around the school, also have a good relationship with the coaches.”

Wright is one of the best ball pressuring 2017 guards in the nation and is an aggressive plus quick lead guard who fits how Richard Pitino wants to play.  McKinley knows that he fits what Minnesota does.

“I really like their style of play, they're an up tempo team, like to run, and do a lot of pick and rolls so it fits me perfect.”

Wright is listed at exactly six feet tall on both his recent Champlin Park and Net Gain rosters and is listed at 164 pounds.

Last winter he put up 13.8 points per game for the 31-1 Champlin Park Rebels who made the state championship only to lose to Apple Valley
