From NBC Sports: His name is Yuri Wright, and he’s a four-star defensive back prospect from high school football powerhouse Don Bosco Prep in Ramsey, N.J. Wright, reportedly being pursued by several big-name universities, among them Notre Dame, Rutgers and Michigan, was expelled from Don Bosco over several x-rated comments he made on his Twitter account.
According to several sources, Michigan has decided not to recruit him because of the expulsion. This could be the first example of a prep player losing a big football scholarship over a social media mistake.
“He’s a good kid and I think he has a bright college future and I wish him the best of luck,” Don Bosco coach Greg Toal said. “There is no question Don Bosco had to do what it had to do.”
Wright’s credentials are impressive. The No. 3 player in The Ledger 50, Wright is ranked as the 40th best recruit in the country by ESPN, while Rivals.com lists him as 85th and the third best at his position.
