Being at Pearl, he hears all about it from current Golden Eagles D.J. Thompson and Evan Osbourne.
Saturday he was able to see again for himself about the excitement surrounding the program.
"My day was great on campus there at Southern Miss," Wright told GoldenEaglePride.com.
"I mostly, to be honest, enjoyed meeting and spending time with the coaching staff."
What did the coaches have to say to the Pearl RB?
"They told me they were very happy that I came and that I am always welcome there," he said. "They are just so welcoming and make you feel like Southern Miss is your home."
Though he missed out on the scrimmage, Wright said he hopes to visit later for a spring practice.
"I just missed it because I got there later than I wanted to, but I will get back down to a practice hopefully," he added.
"Southern Miss is a great school and I really love the coaches. They are for sure right there at the top for me."
