Lee's Wright, Augustus commit
Earlier this season, Idreis Augustus sat down with The Washington Post's B.J. Koubaroulis.
One of the biggest story lines coming into Virginia's football season last fall was that Idreis Augustus and Eric Wright had chosen to leave Paul VI and the heavily-recruited Washington Catholic Athletic Conference to return to Lee -- their neighborhood public school. Many said that Augustus was unhappy with the way his recruitment was being handled at PVI.
Over the past week, both Augustus and Wright have committed to play football at the college level.
According to Lee Coach Rob Everett, Wright has committed to play at Richmond. James Madison had also recruited him.
Everett said that Augustus is committed to Prairie View A&M after his official visit this past weekend.
"He was scheduled for an official [visit] at Maine this coming weekend, but they committed a [running back] out of [Pennsylvania], so they are done at the position," Everett said.
Everett said that Augustus's recruitment was more difficult in that many colleges refused to look past his 5-foot-9 height.
Everett pointed to Augustus' highlight reel as evidence of his ability.
Augustus left PVI behind after recording 2,500 rushing yards and 25 touchdowns in his career and, for much of the first half of the season, he led the area in rushing before an injury slowed him down.
Wright, a talented linebacker, made more of a silent impact on defense on a team that focused on a wildcat offense.
