RNE Athlete Generating Interest

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 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 Practice.

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. is your source for: College Football | Football Recruiting | College Basketball | Basketball Recruiting | College Baseball | High School | College Merchandise
