What are Wright's plans?

Paramus (N.J.) Catholic defensive tackle Marquise Wright is one of the fastest-rising prospects in New Jersey's Class of 2011, and the offers keep rolling in.

West Virginia and Arkansas are the most recent offers for the 6-foot-3, 265-pound prospect, and you can bet there will be plenty more before Signing Day in 2011.

While some prospects plan on waiting until the last minute to make their decisions, either because they're undecided or because they enjoy the attention and visits, Wright is thinking about making his choice well before then.

"I'm thinking about possibly making (a decision) before my season," Wright said on Tuesday evening.

Despite his plans to make an early decision, Wright said he did want to take as many official visits as he is able to when the time comes.

"I want to take trips to Oklahoma and all those schools, but they're so far away. I pretty much have to wait until officials for that."

Wright plans on taking a visit to Penn State this weekend, though he doesn't know entirely what they have in store for him. He plans on arriving at the school on Saturday and he will stay there until Sunday.

"I've been keeping in touch with coach Dave Sollazzo from Maryland, and I speak to the (Florida) Gators' running backs coach. I speak to Larry Johnson from Penn State, and I've spoken to the recruiting coach from Florida State a few times," he recalled.

Wright said it is too early for him to list any schools as favorites.
