His 4.31 and 4.39-second 40-yard dash runs at the Shrine Bowl combine held at Washington High School were the talk of the event, and he quickly picked up an offer from North Carolina.
"They have a great environment," said Wright. "I've been to Carolina a lot, and I really like the coaches. It was great to get an offer from them."
A couple of days after picking up the UNC offer he made the drive from Wilson to Raleigh, North Carolina to visit NC State, and the Wolfpack would also extend a scholarship.
"It was great at State," said Wright. "I was able to meet all the coaches again, and I really like the whole coaching staff. I like what I've been hearing from them... about their plans for our recruiting class."
Wright stated that the Wolfpack didn't really put much pressure on him to make a decision.
"They obviously would like me to go ahead and commit and e part of their family, but they know I'm not rushing it," he said. "It's a big decision, and wherever I choose that's where I'm going so I want to make sure I make the right decision. I told Carolina the same thing.
"When this started I never expected it to be like this. I had people telling me who was going to start offering me, but I didn't think it would be like this. To get offers from both of them is a blessing."
As a junior, Wright recorded 89 tackles (67 solo), three interceptions, one forced fumble, and five pass deflections while playing safety for Hunt High School. He says that NC State and North Carolina are recruiting him to play linebacker.
Right now he has a top three and doesn't claim a leader. Wright plans on attending a few more camps later this summer.
"I have a top three of State, Carolina, and Wake Forest," he said. "I still have to go to camps at State on the 20th, Duke on the 15th, and Wake Forest the 14th of July.
"I don't have any other visits planned right now. I still want to take my time and make sure I make the right decision, but I guess I could pick a school anytime now."
