SCOUTING REPORT: Wright has an exceptional combination of size, strength and athleticism. He is strong and powerful, and he has long arms and does an excellent job with his hands. He will consistently keep separation, find the football and pursue.
Wright disengages quickly and pursues hard to the football. He is a reliable tackler for such a big player, and he is very fluid and relentless as a pass rusher when he gets into the backfield. He also bats down a lot of passes at the line of scrimmage.
Wright is a disciplined player that knows his assignments and executes at an extremely high level. He's a polished pass-rusher who should step in and help NC State right away.
COACH QUOTE: "Littleton is the best right defensive end to play for me. He is the prototype right defensive end, he's fast, and agile. I see this kid as being like the Kiwanuka kid from Boston College. He has those long arms and good reach. Once he gets on a conditioning program and adds weight I think he'll be an NFL caliber player." – Lackawanna Head Coach Mark Duda
AMATO QUOTE: "Littleton is a very good pass rusher and we think he can help us in that area very quickly. He's very aggressive and plays hard."
WRIGHT QUOTE: "Their defensive ends play like I do, it's close to home, they have the No. 1 defense in the nation, and I just like the school overall."
