Prior to Utah: Isaiah Wright, a 6-2 point guard, attended Borah High School in Boise, Idaho. He is a quintessential lead guard who facilitates the offense with composure and has all the physical intangibles. A player who can get where he needs to go with the dribble, Wright penetrates well and is a pass-first backcourt player.
The Idaho Gatorade Player of the Year averaged 16.2 points, 6.9 assists, 5.2 rebounds and 3.3 steals as he chose the Utes over Boise State and Creighton. Wright's accolades also include being named the 5A All-Idaho Player of the Year and MVP of the 5A Idaho State Tournament while leading his squad to a state title. A well-rounded student-athlete, Wright has also volunteered at the Special Olympics and Rake Up Boise.
