Darnell Wright recruiting update ahead of Kentucky game

Tennessee 2019 offensive line target Darnell Wright from Huntington High School in Huntington, W. Va., is set to play in the first round of the playoffs tonight.

Huntington High School assistant coach Willie Wilson discussed Wright’s season with Vols Wire.

“He had a little shoulder issue around the fifth game, but everything is resolved and fine,” Wilson said.

Wright did not miss any games and had a MRI done to be cautious.

“He has had some pretty good games,” Wilson said. “When he wants to take control, he can take control and pretty much the line of scrimmage is his.”

Huntington is playing Cabell Midland in the first round of the playoffs, a team that they lost to 21-7 three weeks ago.

The 6-foot-6, 315-pound offensive lineman could be visiting Tennessee for the Kentucky game and his playoff game tonight could factor in if he makes the trip to Knoxville.

Indications point towards Wright visiting UT if Huntington loses, and a playoff win could keep Wright in West Virginia to focus on the next playoff opponent.

With the Early Signing Period kicking off December 19-21, it remains unclear if he will sign in December or wait until February with him likely not being an early enrollee.
