William G. Enloe wing Moses Wright and his family were in Atlanta over the weekend for his official visit to Georgia Tech. The visit led to the Raleigh, North Carolina recruit becoming the third member of the 2017 Tech recruiting class.
His family enjoyed the visit just as much as Moses did. “They saw the value of a Georgia Tech degree. The fact that everything was great was enough for me to give Coach (Josh) Pastner my commitment.”
Coach Pastner let Moses know that he was anxious to get him on campus to start working with him. “He said he loves my potential and the ceiling I have as a player and a student.” Coach Pastner looks at Moses as a high energy and hard working player that can give the team a lot of minutes. “He said that is a great combination. I can’t wait to get to the campus.” Moses is even thinking about making a return visit before he enrolls this summer.
Moses had a chance to meet with the academic people to talk about the business school and the opportunities he’ll have from the school. “We watched several videos on how the business school has risen from just being a part of the Institute to being one of the top 10 in the country.”
The visit also included a tour of the campus and the facilities including the football facilities. “Coach Pastner talked about the players from each sport supporting each other.” The highlight of the visit for Moses was getting to play some pickup games. “The players all told me that I’d be a great addition to the team.”
Wright had a chance to hang out with several of the current players. “I hung out with Josh Okogie, AD (Abdoulaye Gueye) and Sylvester Ogbonda.” Moses especially enjoyed the players getting after each other in the pickup games. “They even got me into the mix and I felt like I was already on the team.”
Now that he is a commit, Mosses is excited about the chance to play in the ACC. “Knowing that Coach Pastner is a great coach and that Coach (Darryl) LaBarrie will be there to help guide me is a very positive feeling. I have nothing but positive vibes from the visit, my commitment to Georgia Tech, and how my family feels about me going to Atlanta and attending such a prestigious school as Georgia Tech.”
When Moses arrives at Tech, he’ll be counted on to fill the void left by graduating players. “Coach Pastner said I would be needed at the stretch forward position. I’m excited that he feels I can step in and help the team.”
