So, the 5-foot-10, 180 pounder ended his recruitment and became yet another Blue Devil from the state of Florida. Wright is expected to challenge for a spot in the defensive backfield and says the coaching staff has talked about getting time in the fall as a kick returner.
"I know I probably won't crack the starting lineup as a freshman – I mean there is a lot of stuff I have to learn about the systems and playbooks. But I think I can go in and get a chance to play next season. That kind of opportunity was very important to me."
Clocked at 4.5 in the forty yard dash, Wright had committed to Delaware and credits their coaching staff as the reason he had not opened his recruitment to other programs, including offers from Ball State, Akron, and West Virginia.
"They are a great staff, but Duke is the best place for me. I knew at the other places I had offers I'd not have a chance to play for a few years. At Duke I can help the coaching staff really build things. I'm looking forward to doing that."
