How he got here: He grew up a Nebraska fan thanks to his father Toby, a Blackshirt at Nebraska in the early 1990s. Toby Wright went on to a successful NFL career but never lost his passion for Husker football. Javin, meanwhile, learned under his dad about the finer points of the game before honing his talents at Hamilton, one of the premier high school programs in the Southwest. After three good seasons — with 111 tackles and 21 pass breakups — Wright missed most of his senior year with a knee injury. He visited NU on crutches. He picked Nebraska over a host of Pac-12 offers.

Our take: Wright would have been a multiyear starter at almost any Pac-12 school. Nebraska gets a steal here, an underrated recruit with the coverage skills of a corner but the potential to grow into a safety or linebacker. Wright is versatile, fluid and knows how to hit. His father’s tutelage and a high level of high school play bode well for the future. He’s down the list of blue-chip recruits but hardly an afterthought.

They said it: “I’m fine with playing in the box, but my real strength is my coverage ability. I’m more of a cover corner who will still come up and smack you. I still have some Toby Wright in me.” — Javin Wright
