November 4 Update

McKinley Wright may be the hottest name nationally in Minnesota’s junior class right now.  Gary Trent Jr  was first to grab the big attention nationally, then Goanar Mar, followed by Theo John last spring, and then Trent again pretty much all summer.

But right now it seems like college programs and college writers from around the nation are seeking out Wright who made the Rivals 150 for the 2017 class after a strong summer with Net Gain Sports.

New college programs are also getting a hold of Wright.  One of those programs is Clemson who stopped by four schools in Minnesota a month ago including Champlin Park to see Wright and Theo John.

"I think they are a great school," McKinley recently stated. "They are in the ACC. They have a great program. It's a ways from home, but distance doesn't really impact me. I like Coach Brownell a lot and his staff. They are cool and crack a lot of jokes."

Iowa State is one of the four major conference programs to have offered McKinley and they are following Wright on a regular basis.

"I like them a lot too.  Coach (Prohm) is on me hard.
