Wright Way to Rutgers

At Wall Township High School on National Letter of Intent Day, Timothy Wright made his commitment official by signing on the dotted line to become a Scarlet Knight.

The transition should be easy for Tim Wright as Wall High School is known as the "Knights" and have scarlet modeled uniforms like that of Rutgers.

Wright is also ready to make an impact on the collegiate stage. During high school, he played wide receiver, running back, safety, cornerback, and returner. At Rutgers, he will be asked to be a playmaking wide receiver and could possibly compete for some punt or kick return duties.

Wright also believes he will make a smooth transition from high school to college.

"When I went up to the official visit, my host was Tiquan Underwood and we talked a little bit about things they (Rutgers) does on and off the field," Wright said. "We have a good relationship going.

"I went to one of the practices before the bowl game, and it isn't too much different that I haven't seen before. I think I will fit in just right."

Rutgers runs a high-powered offense that included two 1000-yard receivers last season in Kenny Britt and Underwood. Wright said he played in a run first offense at Wall and is excited to get some chances to rack up the receiving yards.

"Finding out the numbers that the two receivers had really lightened me up," Wright said. "I know there is opportunity out there to go get what they had and I want to be apart of the mix."

Wright made the trip up to four games this season, including the upset of then No. 2 South Florida. When asked if he was one of the people who rushed the field after the game, Wright said he left early, but did add. "I will be there next year for that."
Perhaps he will be giving the fans reason to rush the field again next year.
