Michigan Might Have Stopped Recruiting Yuri Wright Over His Tweets

High school kids, especially high school kids seeking a Division I scholarship to play football, should probably lay off the Twitter. Michigan abruptly stopped recruiting Don Bosco Prep (see: awesome New Yorker piece) star Yuri Wright, Rivals’ No. 85 overall, No. 3 cornerback out of New Jersey. His tweets, featuring some graphic racial and sexual content, seem like a plausible impetus for that decision.

Here’s a sampling from Chat Sports.

I’m not sure what would turn me off more recruiting this kid, Wright being dumb enough to put this online or being dumb enough to think girls have “organisms?” The nefarious twitter hacker strikes again?

Wright took visits to Notre Dame and Colorado in December. He’s scheduled to visit Rutgers tomorrow. He also has Georgia in his top five. One would think this might make the Irish squeamish as well.
