A few weeks ago, Wright went to Dallas for the SMU/UAB matchup.
"I talked to the other defensive tackle commit, Risaad Wimbley, while I was there," he said. "We just talked about things in general and got to know each other."
After an 0-3 start, defending Class 4A semifinalist Dayton has won two in a row.
"We're 2-0 in district," said Wright, "and we beat Galena Park, 54-23, on Friday. Playing those 5A schools in non-district helped us out a lot. I had six tackles against Galena Park and I graded out pretty well."
The previous week, the Broncos throttled Barbers Hill, 54-0. Last season, Dayton posted a 12-3 mark.
Wright picked SMU over offers from Kentucky, Tulane, Colorado State, and several FCS schools.
