The hits keep coming. Isaiah Wright, a 6'1" 220 lb. receiver from Kingswood Oxford, in West Hartford, CT just became the fourth WR in the 2016 class. Wright was one of the top remaining targets on Rutgers WR board, and his commitment is great news.

Wright had offers from Ohio State, Maryland, BC, UConn, Syracuse and UMass. Rivals ranks him as a three star, and the second highest ranked player in Connecticut.
Wright spoke with 247's ChopNation, and said the following:
"I've been on campus a couple of times and I felt like I really fit in there," he said. "I'm so comfortable at Rutgers, I feel like I already go there, so I felt it was the best fit for me. I get along great with the players - Leonte's my boy, Andre (Boggs), and Kiy (Hester) - I get along great with all of them."
His film shows an elusive, fluid receiver who is also big enough to be very difficult to tackle, and who can gain big yards after contact. He reminds me of Mo Sanu (and not just because of his trick play QB work), so . . that works for me.

Rutgers 2016 WR recruiting is likely done with this commitment, although a handful of special prospects (Smothers, Claypool, Harmon) could cause the staff to find room for a fifth receiver.
