Yesterday, Colorado received some excellent news from Yuri Wright, one of the top cornerbacks in the country, as the New Jersey prospect commited to the Buffaloes over the Notre Dame, Rutgers and others.
But now one website is claiming that his offer from Notre Dame was not still valid. Steve Wilftong of 247 Sports says that the staff chose to move in another direction, just as Michigan is thought to have done when it discovered Wright’s tweets. Wiltfong is a seasoned recruiting reporter, but the circumstances here are suspect. Namely, no reputable outlet reported that his scholarship offer had been revoked by Notre Dame prior to him committing elsewhere.
Was Wright’s offer from Notre Dame still valid? We’ll likely never know for sure, as he has not elected to comment on the matter, and college coaches are prohibited by NCAA rule from commenting on prospective student athletes. It will be interesting to see if Wright opens up on the matter, or of Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelley elects to speak about Wright at a later date.
