Wright teamed with Miami-bound center Reggie Johnson to give the school its first-ever state championship. A scorer by trade, Wright averaged 21.7 points a game as a senior.
"Appalachian came on strong late and some other schools couldn't overcome the opportunity that Appalachian had to offer," W-S Prep coach Andre Gould told Scout.com. "He liked their style of play and that was important."
Wright brings a true combination style to Fancher's backcourt. Speedy and quick to the cup, he can create shots for himself and others. A late qualifier, interest picked up since March and the Mountaineers moved swiftly to lock him down.
"What stuck out the most – I'd say two things – was the style of play and the location," Wright said. "There's enough to do there and it's not a big city where I can lose focus. I'm trying to do something after college ball and I think I can stay focused up there."
