Catching Up with High Level PG in SC 2021 Jacobi Wright
Jacobi Wright is one of the best point guards in the SC 2021 class. The quick and shifty guard has great ball handling ability and can break defenders down off the bounce. Wright is a smart player and has a great understanding of how to use the combination of his quickness and driving angles to get paint touches. He can score the ball and set his teammates up for easy buckets. Wright has a pure stroke and can also fill it up from three. The Legacy Early College junior currently holds offers from South Carolina, DePaul, Tennessee Tech, Winthrop, Elon, Charleston, Charlotte, and South Florida. On the Big Shots Circuit, Wright has been one of the most elite scoring combo guards we have seen from South Carolina.
