Pussy tweets and more help CU land Top 100 recruit Yuri Wright

Yuri Wright.
How did CU land New Jersey cornerback Yuri Wright, a top 100 recruit coveted by plenty of other major universities? Part of the thanks go to a series of profane tweets that got him expelled from his prep school -- after the football season was over, of course.

Most mainstream outlets are referring to the posts only in vague terms, but we're all about sharing. See a sampling below.

Lots of the tweets collected by Chat Sports from Wright's now-shuttered account feature a certain "N" word. But there are also references to other ethnicities, like this one:

Still, the dominant theme is neatly summed up in the following pronouncement:

Getting such satisfaction is apparently important to Wright's education, as he argues here:

For instance, check out this example of how his desires dovetail with geography:

Still, even the most diligent student occasionally uses the wrong word sometimes....

As for members of the fairer sex, Wright tends to look at them in a couple of notable ways:

Even his mom doesn't earn an exemption.

But at least he knows what he wants to do with his life.

Given this goal, it makes perfect sense that CU would have been on his radar. But he was also seriously considering Michigan, Notre Dame and Rutgers -- at least until his expulsion from Ramsey, New Jersey's Don Bosco Prep. After that, Michigan, where Wright had reportedly been dreaming of playing since he was a kid, dropped out of the sweepstakes, and folks at Notre Dame and Rutgers didn't publicly bust their humps reassuring him.

Hence, he committed to CU, and yesterday, he offered a Twitter mea culpa to ESPN, saying, "I definitely learned a valuable lesson, and I promise nothing like that will ever happen again. Everyone that knows me knows that's not my true character or who I really am.

"I'm not going to sit here and try and make excuses for what I did," he continued. "I'm just going to be a man and say I was wrong and I learned from it. Hopefully other people will learn from what happened to me and make smarter choices. My days with social media are over. I promise."

No doubt that's great news to CU's Jon Embree, whose own tweets are about as controversial as a declaration of love for apple pie. And thus far, none of them have mentioned Yuri Wright.

These are classics! And if you have never been an athlete on a Colorado College or High School campus....then you cannot image how real this is!!!!The same story...the same language ...the same addition for every ethnicity out there.This is nothing compared to what the Debutantes are saying!

Do your homework Michael Roberts...come (no pun intended) back (no position implied) in three weeks (if your girlfriend's period does not start) with some real juicy (hmmmmm) stuff from the Players.....College Debutantes Gone Bad!

After All...you headlined your story with "Pussy" ....show us the "Pussy"

Can we get some pics of the chics he 's talking about....

I had to call up my Buddies...this is exactly like life at every Colorado College & High school campus from CSU to Fairview High School.....re: Sydney Spies....

"Sydney Spies submits another yearbook photo from sexy shoot"

You printed it Michael "Badass White Women"....come on man...White, Black, Green or Blue..if you had a Hot Chick like Sydney Spies hanging around practice waiting for you....you would be tweeting in your pants too!

Moms & Dads...don't get mad if your Debutante Daughter gets humped & dumped ny some jock who can't keep his Rocket in his Pocket...its what kids do.

Please ask Manager of Safety Martinez whether or not Sgt. Beaulieu from District One submitted a letter of complaint to him regarding Chief White's comments about Commander Stephens at the sergeants meeting last Friday.

This kid ain't too bright.  Why didn't he do what every celebrity and politician does when they tweet stupid shit and claim his account was hacked??

It's not my character.  Those are just things I said and did repeatedly.

Embree needs to pass on this kid.  The only lesson he learned in the span of a few weeks is to not post his deeper thoughts on social media.  It's highly unlikely his underlying character changed as well.  Those tweets (and others) all-too shockingly exemplify a chronic ugly and lewd misogynistic thug-think.  I have two highschoolers considering CU and I don't want a kid who thinks/talks/probably acts like that on the campus much less on the football field.  Walk the talk, Coach.

I'm pretty sure the vast majority of college-aged males (especially good-looking athletes) think about pussy pretty much all the time, it's not just this guy! I mean he's talking about sex not murder. I do think the Jewish comment was pretty rude--and stupid. At least we can see where he gets this stuff--the dad.

Hilarious: you don't think its offensive because you want him to call you a hot piece of pussy. Way to strike a blow for feminism!

Um, I find it amusing and ironic that I'm accused of "striking a blow for feminism" by something who calls itself Sqanqybeeyotch. LMAO! And sweetie, I don't need a college kid I've never met to validate my hotness. That just is what it is;-)
