Utah Hoops - Wright garners exposure on media day

Utah junior Delon Wright has yet to play his first game for the Utes.

That doesn't mean people don't know who he is.

Take Colorado junior Spencer Dinwiddie. When asked about Utah, Wright was almost the first thing out of his mouth.

"He's someone who can hurt you in a number of ways," Dinwiddie said. "He's multi-skilled and he's someone who can make a big impact in this league."

If that's not enough, take Utes coach Larry Krystkowiak's lead.

"Delon is someone who can certainly garner some attention in the conference."

Or what about college basketball analyst Jon Rothstein, who raved about Wright on twitter.

"I would expect Delon Wright to have an immediate impact for Utah. 6-5 guard can flat out score the ball. Will help Jordan Loveridge."

Point is, Wright's not a complete unknown coming out of junior college. He's going to be counted on to produce and he's already being acknowledged as someone who could have an impact for the Utes right away.
