NC State has had an up and down season in 2013 as injuries have taken a toll on the Wolfpack through the first six games but Wilson (NC) Hunt standout Dexter Wright is still very excited about the direction of the program.
"Nobody expected them to be undefeated or anything at this point.
They're doing a good job. They're doing some good things as a team.
They've just got to get their own guys in there," Wright said.
Wright is one of their guys as a member of the 2014 expected signing
class. Since he has been able to attend multiple games at
Carter-Finley this year he has gotten to know a lot of his future
He buys in to what Dave Doeren is saying about "getting his own
guys" because he's looked into who those guys are.
"I've met just about all of them and it's a great group of guys.
We're going to get it turned around."
Now 6-3 and roughly 205 pounds, Wright is not sure where he will be
playing for the Wolfpack. Last year Wright did most of his work on
the defensive side of the ball. But this year he has rushed for more
than 800 yards and nine touchdowns. He still has 30 tackles and two
There is no doubt he will be playing defense. The question remains,
"Coach White and McNutt are the two defensive backs coaches and they
told me they think I'll play safety. But they also said I could put
some weight on and move down to linebacker. I don't really care and
I would play either. But I do feel like I would have more
versatility at linebacker because of my speed to get out and cover."
North Carolina and Wake Forest occasionally still send Wright pieces
of mail but he told Pack Pride that he is not even thinking about
recruiting anymore. Only his future at State.
