Elite Valencia (Calif.) cornerback MyKael Wright is down to just eight schools.
The Texas Longhorns are one of those finalists, along with Alabama, Washington, Arizona, Oregon, Arizona State, Tennessee and USC.

A four-star prospect rated as the nation’s No. 4 cornerback, per the 247Sports Composite, Wright picked up his Texas offer on Feb. 25 and has been in frequent contact with the staff ever since. However, as evident by his finalists list, save for Texas, Alabama and Tennessee, Wright is leaning towards staying out west.
For Texas, that means getting the California native on campus at some point in the near future is essential if the ‘Horns hope to remain a factor as his recruitment progresses.
Wright is one of the many California prospects Texas has attempted to make its presence felt with this cycle. Thus far, those efforts have been rewarded with a pledge from four-star Westlake (Calif.) Village linebacker De’Gabriel Floyd, and the Longhorns remain in the mix with Bellflower St. John Bosco cornerback Chris Steele and his teammate, three-star linebacker Spencer Lytle.
A 5’11, 180-pound prospect, Wright is ranked as the nation’s No. 45 player and the No. 6 player in California, per the 247Sports Composite.
