The excitement builds as the #1 ranked Trojans are only 24 days away from the start of the 2007 season. Representing #24 on our countdown to kickoff is sophomore cornerback Shareece Wright. Wright appeared in all 13 games last season as a true freshmen. Picking up valuable playing time at cornerback and on special teams.
Shareece played well during the spring and with only one cornerback position solidified, he has the opportunity to compete for the starting job opposite Terrell Thomas. With Kevin Thomas still recovering from injury, Wright's primary competition this fall is current starter Cary Harris. Competition will increase when/if Kevin Thomas returns and if the coaching staff decides to move Josh Pinkard back to cornerback. Shareece is a very physical cornerback and we should get a good look at him on Friday when the team suits up for their first day in pads.
I just heard the first horn sound, time to head over to Howard Jones...
