Clemson was the first school to offer this sophomore safety from Gulliver Prep in Miami, Florida.

Cedrick Wright, a 5-foot-11, 190-pound safety, received the offer from defensive coordinator Brent Venables.

"I was talking to coach Venables before spring and he was telling me that they were going to be my first offer," Wright recently told CUTigers. "I had to call him, because he couldn't call me, because I was still a freshman. I called him. I talked to my recruiter here and he said Clemson had offered me.

"I wasn't informed because I had just made a switch of schools. When you switch schools, you don't get the mail or anything. So that's how I found out."

News of the offer was well received.

"It was real big," Wright said. "I've worked really hard for it. When I got it, I was like my hard work has paid off. And Clemson is a great school. I love their colors. I love that they're a football tradition school."

He's still learning about Clemson and what's going on up in Tigertown.

"I don't know much, but I liked how their defense played against LSU. They were real good. I like the defense," Wright said. "Coach Venables, I like what he's doing up there. It seems like a good school to be at."

Clemson will host him for a visit sometime down the road.

"I'm going to get up there next summer," Wright said.

He visited Miami earlier this summer. That's the only college campus that's hosted him for a visit.

In addition to the Clemson offer, Appalachian State has come through with one.

Georgia, West Virginia, Miami, Vanderbilt, UConn, Stanford and Cal have been in contact with him. Wright will be looking at a few factors before making a decision.

"Of course, a great defensive coordinator. I'd like to have a connection with the coaches, of course," Wright said. "I don't mind going away from home, so I'm open to any school. It doesn't really matter to me. I'm looking for a home-type feeling."

Wright recorded 110 tackles last season as a freshman for Homestead High School. Top Stories
