Cornerback Yuri Wright, the 40th-ranked player on the ESPNU 150, has committed to Colorado, according to multiple media reports.
The former standout from Don Bosco Prep in Ramsey, N.J., was kicked out of the school Jan. 18 after graphic posts on his Twitter account came to light.
"He was expelled from the school for the things he had written on Twitter," Don Bosco head coach Greg Toal told ESPNNewYork.com on Jan. 18. "It was pretty simple really, what he wrote were some graphic sex things. This is a Catholic school, things like that cannot happen. It was totally inappropriate."
Wright has a new Twitter account, according to The Record (Bergen, N.J.).
Among the other schools from which he had scholarship offers were Rutgers, Notre Dame and Michigan. A number of media outlets reported that Michigan has stopped recruiting him when news of the Twitter posts broke. Wright had taken an official visit to Colorado in December, the Newark Star-Ledger reported.
National signing day is Feb. 1.
Wright, a 6-foot-1, 185-pound senior, is ranked the fourth-best high school cornerback prospect in the country.
Wright played in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio earlier this month. Toal said last week that he had received calls from a few coaches regarding the situation, and believes Wright ultimately will weather the situation.
"There have been schools that have called asking about it, but he'll be fine as far as colleges go." Toal told ESPNNewYork.com. "Some don't like it, but mostly people are just calling to make sure his head is straight."
