Could Darnell Wright Be Next?

Morgantown, West Virginia – After Neal Brown landed one of the best recruiting classes in West Virginia program history, it appears that he’s not quite done.

Doug Nester, a former four star prospect from Huntington, WV, decided to transfer from Virginia Tech and officially entered the transfer portal yesterday.  Early reports indicate that Nester is a “near lock” to land with the Mountaineers.

In addition, there are rumblings that former 5 star player and one of the nation’s top ten recruits out of high school, Darnell Wright, could also enter the transfer portal any day now.

Wright, a 6’6 330 pound offensive lineman also from Huntington, West Virginia, was a freshman All-SEC team member last season and has been a two-year start at Tennessee.

West Virginia already has a very bright future on the offensive line, with in-state players Zach Frazier, recent signee Wyatt Milum and potential transfer Doug Nester.  Wright would be the icing on the cake.

Although it is not certain that he will enter the transfer portal yet, West Virginia would likely be right at the top of his list if he does.

Remember, Neal Brown put the full-court press on trying to land Wright when he took the job at West Virginia two years ago.  Brown took his entire coaching staff to visit Wright at his high school, trying desperately to convince him to stay home and play for the Mountaineers.

Wright, at the time, admitted that former head coach Dana Holgorsen didn’t even attempt to recruit him and that he had already decided to go to Tennessee by the time Brown took over.

Stay tuned and keep an eye on Darnell Wright potentially entering the transfer portal in the coming days.  If he does, West Virginia will certainly swoop in and try to get him to come play for the Mountaineers.
