Apollo High School in Owensboro has a junior wing/guard that is starting to make some serious noise in the class of 2016. Eli Wright, a 6-foot-5 lefty, was recently named MVP at a Future150 camp, supporting that No 36 overall spot he holds down in the Future150 class of 2016 rankings. He currently has offers from Western Kentucky, Eastern Kentucky, Northern Kentucky, Mississippi State and UAB. Wright will visit Louisville today (groan) but his eyes are on obtaining a scholarship offer from the University of Kentucky. His AAU coach, Steve Quattrocchi from Kentucky's Hoop Dreams program, told me Wright is a lifelong fan of the Cats and attended a game in Rupp Arena back in February. He would likely jump all over an offer if one were to come his way. Check out his highlights from last season at Apollo and remember the name:
