Wright may set official to Rutgers

Four-star defensive tackle Marquise Wright recently backed out of his commitment to Pitt with all of the turmoil surrounding that football program.

He is now scheduled to take official visits to North Carolina, Michigan State and Miami over the next three weekends, and he's thinking about taking a fourth.

"There's a possibility I'll be going to Rutgers," Wright said on Monday afternoon.

"That's if everything goes okay. I still have to talk to them about it. If I do it then it would be January 28."

Another school is also a possibility. Wright took an official visit to Maryland in mid-December and the Terrapins are still on his mind as a possibility.

"They're still in the picture," Wright confirmed.

Wright is ranked the No. 6 defensive tackle in the nation by Rivals.com.
