Big 12 and FCS interest grows for Kansas City area DB

Isaiah Wright continued his recruiting tour this weekend with an unofficial visit to Big 12 country.

The 2019 East (Shawnee Mission, KS) defensive back spent time on Iowa State’s campus and shared his impressions of the Cyclones’ football program.

“Honestly it was really cool,” Wright said. “I can’t wait to go up there again!”

Prior to the trip to Ames, the nickel/safety prospect had taken trips to in-state Big 12 schools Kansas and Kansas State along with FCS program Missouri State from the Missouri Valley.

“Missouri State was my first visit and I really liked it a lot,” he said. “Everybody was very nice and respectful. It was like a family atmosphere. Kansas State was amazing. I loved it. Kansas was good. Their locker room was so tight and the coaches were really nice and straight forward.”

Wright is now looking towards more upcoming visits with plans to see MVC schools Northern Iowa later this month as well as Southern Illinois during early April.

He hopes to schedule a return trip to Missouri State along with last season’s FCS National Champion, North Dakota State and holds a scholarship offer from Butler County Community College.

Wright also confirmed interest in Kent State, Illinois State, South Dakota State and Northwest Missouri State.
