The days are literally getting longer, and I’m sure that’s no surprise to anyone who continually checks their calendar for September 3rd. But with our help on these countdown articles, the universe pushes time on to the season opener.
#83, Cole Wright, RS Sophomore, WR
High School: Carlsbad HS, Carlsbad, CA
How’d he get to The Blue™?
A 3-star recruit out of California, Cole had quite the quick turnaround in signing with the Broncos. He committed in February 2nd of 2020 and signed on the 5th. He did have a few other offers from the likes of Hawaii and Idaho, but 247 Sports’ page on him declines to corroborate that information, so I will say that we were truly Cole’s one and only.
“The Wright Brother”
As he gets more integrated in the offense, we’ll be ready for Cole to take flight.
Pete Davidson. The current most inescapable (least escapable?) man on the internet makes his way to OBNUG.
In his Senior year at Carlsbad, Cole had 1,176 yards and 13 TDs, averaging 98 yards per game and 13 per catch. He was academic all-Mountain West in 2020.
The Bronco WR core thinned out significantly this past year with graduates and transfers. While Cole likely still won’t see a lot of time with this new group, it wouldn’t surprising to see him get some snaps at WR. He played in 4 games last year which I assume was mostly special teams, but more of both could be coming his way. It is important to note that Cole went to high school only an hour away from one Khalil Shakir and has roughly the same build, so I’ve heard rumors that he may decide to replicate Mr. Shakir’s success on the football field as well. Would be pretty nice.
Is he on Twitter?
He is, @ColeWright0 and he’s rightfully supportive of his departing QB.
Completely made up fact
Cole has been putting in 2 and 3-a-day workouts this month for the upcoming badminton season. Mr. Wright is sure that his prowess on the blue badminton courts of Boise can earn him a spot in the Badminton World Federation championship this August in Tokyo.
