“First and foremost I want to thank God for sending me on a journey to get to this point I am now I also want to thank the coaches who have put the time in recruiting me,” Wright shared in a note on Twitter. “Also I wanna thank my parents and everybody in my life for the help with this recruiting process and motivating me to get through this juco life.”
Wright made 50 catches for 805 yards and 8 TDs at junior college last season. Wright’s commitment pushes the Boilermakers’ commitment total to 21. Before Wright’s choice, Purdue ranked No. 65 nationally.
The 6-foot, 170-pound receiver ranks No. 15 nationally as a junior college receiver. He’s also No. 128 overall.
On Sunday, Purdue picked up commitments from OL DeShon Washington and DB Kenneth Major. Those two recruits flipped to the Boilermakers from Western Kentucky. New Boilermakers coach Jeff Brohm took over after coaching at Western Kentucky.
