"I've been thinking about [committing] and it came to me the other day that it was the best school for me," said Wright. "I called today and told the coaches that I wanted to commit. They were excited... they wanted me bad.
"State has a really good program. I think it will be a great fit for me. I can go in and help them out, plus I think it's a good school. I also really like the coaches."
Wright mainly lined up at left tackle last season for the Rampants, but he is being recruited to play defensive end by NC State.
"I switched my position in the offseason so it really works out for me," he said. "I like playing defense more anyways so that means a lot for me that I'll be playing defense in college."
Wright has been timed as low as 4.8 in the 40-yard dash. He indicated that he played defensive end two games last season, totaling four sacks and five tackles for a loss.
Pack Pride will have more from Wright on his commitment in the near future so stay tuned!
