The Richland Northeast Cavaliers finished No. 2 in the state in the Class AAAA-DII and
its no secret that they have two all-americans in their Class of 2007 in Mark Barnes and
Gary Gray. But those two are not the only athletes who will turn the heads of recruiters,
as quarterback/athlete Tye Wright
will also woo the recruiters.
Coach Jay Frye told SCVarsity.com that Georgia has called about Tye since his
performance at Nike Camp in Athens last weekend. Wright worked out with the wide receivers
and did well (see Nike
Eval: Part II). He also said that USC has expressed interest in him, as well,
and that they will be in this week, along with Georgia, to watch Wright at Spring
This past season, Wright started at quarterback for the first time and had a 10-0
record as a starter. He passed for 784 yards for a 14 yards per completion average and
passed for six touchdowns. He als displays strong running abilities -evidenced in this
film highlight - and projects as a wide receiver at the next level. He finished the
season with 275 yards rushing and four more scores on the ground.
