DePaul Recruit Dorell Wright Off To A Monster Start

Dorell Wright, who has accepted a basketball scholarship from the DePaul Blue Demons, is off to monster start this year. Wright, a California native, is considered by many to be a Top 25 recruit nationally, and he could be just what the doctor ordered as DePaul prepares itself to become a member of the Big East Conference.

Wright, a 6-7 guard/forward is currently playing for South Kent, a prep school in Connecticut. Wright is averaging double figures in both points and rebounds. Wright has been sensational on both ends of the floor. He already has a 53-point game to his credit this year. In addition, Wright grabbed 20-rebounds in another contest, and blocked a career high 9 shots in another.

Wright has also packed on better than 10-pounds of muscle to his frame. Some consider Wright to be the #1 prep school player in the country. Wright, who originally hales from Lawndale, California, can flat out do it all on the basketball court. He is a tantalizing package of size, athleticism and skill. Offensively, he just flat out knows how to score. Defensively, his long arms and athleticism gives him the ability to shut down opponents.

DePaul fans can get a chance to watch Wright play firsthand when the South Kent School competes at the KMOX Shootout in St. Louis which begins on December 11. Also competing at the event will be Shaun Livingston and Peoria Central, Shaun Pruitt, Justin Cerasoli and West Aurora, Xavier Price and Belleville West and Tommie Liddell and East St. Louis. South Kent will play Mt. Zion Christian Academy, a national power from North Carolina.
