S.C. sleeper emerges

After an impressive showing at the Athens NIKE Camp, Columbia (S.C.) Richland Northeast wide receiver/defensive back Tye Wright has gotten increased attention from college programs.

"Recruiting is going great right now," he said. "Middle Tennessee State is supposed to be coming in this Friday to get a look at me."

Following the April 29 camp, the 5-foot-11, 185-pounder has received interest from Georgia, Georgia Tech and Marshall in addition to the Blue Raiders.

"Georgia came up to watch me practice last week and they could be close to offering," Wright said. "Marshall also came by to see me practice. Georgia Tech sent me a questionnaire and asked me to fill it out and send it to them."

The Bulldogs and Blue Raiders currently stand out the most.

"Georgia and MTSU are my top two colleges," Wright said.

Wright added that if the right school extended an offer, there is a chance he could make an early commitment.

"My parents and I talked it over and they would be fine with that," he said.

Wright played quarterback last season for the South Carolina Class 4A runner-up Cavaliers, but suffered an injury during the 10th game of the season.

This season, Wright will be splitting time at quarterback, wide receiver and strong safety.
