"Yes, I just committed to SMU," Wright said. "It's a dream come true for me to commit to a D-1 school."
Wright, who weighed in at 280 pounds Monday at SMU camp in Houston, played a huge part in Dayton's run to the state finals last year - finishing the season with 73 tackles, seven sacks, and 23 tackles for loss in 2009.
There's a chance that SMU could strike gold twice this year at Dayton, as the Mustangs have also extended an offer to defensive end Justin Booth (6-5, 255).
"Justin and I have talked about committing to the same place," said Wright. "We're pretty good friends. He wasn't sure that he would get a D-1 offer this early because he didn't have much film last year."
PonyStampede.com will have more details on Wright's commitment soon.
