DEACON DE SIGNEE WILL WRIGHT
I love the gated in campus. Everything I imagine about college was all there and it fit. It was a smaller type school, a great group of guys. I took my official weekend and everything about it, I really liked. The coaches seem really genuine and are what they appear to be. A lot of coaches just tell you stuff, but you can tell that they really mean what they say.

Coach Braswell on Will Wright's future
The exciting thing about Will is that his best football is in front of him. He's a guy who has probably put more into his basketball up until the last two years than football and now he's really going to have an opportunity to be in the weightroom, grow bigger, and become a great football player.

Wright's career at Hoggard High
He was a two-way starter for us. He started at defensive end and tight end. He's obviously a big frame kid. He very athletic has some great tools including very good hands.

Other schools showing interest in Wright
South Carolina, ECU, N.C. State, and Duke
