Wright talks recruiting

Each day that passes means Marquise Wright is one day closer to his decision.

Wright just doesn't know what day that will be yet.

The 6-foot-3, 265-pound defensive tackle from Paramus (N.J.) Catholic talked recruiting with Rivals.com on Monday evening.

Coaches from Miami and Pitt visited Wright on Monday. Pitt stopped by around 4 p.m. in the afternoon and Miami visited in the evening.

"Pitt's head coach (Todd Graham) and coach Randolph came by. They just said Pitt was the school I wanted to go to at first and they wanted to see if they can get that back," Wright said.

"That was really the first time I've ever talked to them. I just don't know them. They seem like good people.

"Miami's visit went well. I know who they are and I've spoken to them before."

Wright said he does not have a date in mind for when he wants to make his decision.

He did say that he is no longer considering Maryland and North Carolina.

Michigan State and Rutgers remain at the top of Wright's list, with Miami still in the picture and Pitt trying to climb back into things. Those are the only four schools under consideration.
