SI.com's Andy Staples: For recruits like Yuri Wright, social media behavior has consequences

At 6'2" and 185 pounds, 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. If he stays healthy and works hard, Wright has all the talent to be an All-Pac 12 performer. Colorado is getting a player who should definitely see significant snaps from day one.

Wright recently ran into a bit of trouble, as he was expelled from his school over some inappropriate Twitter messages. The same twitter messages also reportedly led to Michigan rescinding his offer.
