Damien Wright Profile
Damien Wright is an ideal safety in size, speed and tenacity. Coming off 100+ tackles last year from the outside linebacking position, Damien should project to the safety position in college. His size and speed make him an ideal fit and his attitude doesn't hurt as well.
"I love to hit people." Damien said. "Getting a chance to light someone up is better than anything out there."
Damien added 5 sacks and a fumble recovery to his junior statistics. He currently has offers from Vanderbilt, South Carolina, Duke, Clemson and some others and aside from those, is hearing from Georgia, Nebraska and many schools from around the SEC and ACC region. Wright doesn't say he has any favorites, but also said that he's bound to find one fairly quickly considering the time-frame behind his decision.
"I plan on committing after my last camp." Damien said of his pledge coming after he attends the Georgia camp apprx. July 10. "I think I should have a good idea by then."
That idea comes from basically those interested mostly in him, so he's not ruling out anyone right now. "I am looking at a lot of schools, but they have to be interested in me first." he said. "I'll go where I feel most comfortable, but also where they want me the most."
The interesting thing here is that even if Wright commits in July, he's still thinking that he'll make his official visits after his pledge to a school.
"I think I might, but I don't know right now." Damien said. "I guess I will just see how I feel after my camps."
