Cameron Wright Gives Verbal to Pitt

Posted on 09. Aug, 2009 by Nolan in High School

After pulling out of his commitment to Ohio State in April, it didn’t take long for Cameron Wright to find a new home. On Sunday night the Benedictine guard made a verbal commitment to Pitt. “He’s a slasher. He scores in contact. He’s a great passer. His basketball IQ is really, really high. We reconstructed his shot last summer. I think he’s going to be a good shooter” said Rob Stircula (Benedictine coach). Wright is the second player in the class of 2010 to make a commitment to Pitt. The other being Plainfield point guard Isaiah Epps, who committed to the Panthers in January.

I had the opportunity to see a lot of Wright throughout the LeBron James Skills Academy and King City Classic. Although he was a late addition to the event in Cleveland, Wright played excellent and proved to everyone he belonged. He even scored the game winning hoop down the stretch while playing with Isaiah Epps on a team coached by Norm Persin. Cameron worked his tail off on the court, playing excellent defense, and taking it to the rim with reckless abandonment. Coach Stircula is bang on when he says Wright isn’t afraid of contact. Cameron should be an excellent fit in Pittsburgh and coach Dixon must be thrilled.

He chose Pitt over a list of schools that included Michigan State, Wisconsin, Notre Dame, Indiana, and Cleveland State.
