Wright has been compared to current Washington Redskin wide receiver Santana Moss. He is capable of running a blistering 4.3 forty-yard dash. Andre averaged over 30 yards a catch this season.
"The main things that stood out to me were on the academic side. They really want you to do well academically and there's a lot of support with tutors and study facilities. I think I could do well there."
The Commodores won their sixth City League championship defeating Brashear High School 21-7. Andre caught 20 passes for over 600 yards this season. As a junior, he caught 25 passes for approximately 900 yards and scored 11 touchdowns.
"Pitt didn't offer me but Coach (Dave) Wannstedt and I seem to be on the same page. The ball is in my court. If I do well academically, he told me I would be a Panther."
Would Wright accept an offer from the Panthers? "Are you kidding me? I have dreamed of playing for Pitt. It would mean a great deal to me. I think I could contribute early."
