RNE's Wright Draws Interest At Several Positions

Columbia (SC) 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 has generated interest from several programs.

The University of Georgia called RNE head coach Jay Frye after Wright's performance at the Athens Nike Camp, where he competed as a wide receiver. He will be camping at UGA in July.

Wright is a multi-dimensional athlete who was 10-0 as the starting quarterback for the Cavaliers last season. He has been taking most of the snaps at quarterback this Summer, as teammate Gary Gray has been sidelined with a finger injury. But Wright will be recruited as an athlete that some schools like as a wide receiver and others like as a defensive back.

East Carolina has expressed interest in him as a defensive back. Marshall likes him as a wide receiver, as does Middle Tennessee State. Morgan State has expressed interest in him at his current position - quarterback.

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.
