UNC Football Recruiting: Tar Heels Offer Dexter Wright

Dexter Wright has been quietly waiting in the shadows of college football recruiting for sometime now, but his name is starting to surface around the different campuses.

He received his first offer last month and it came from the East Carolina Pirates. Nearly a month later and Wright has picked up offer number two, and a rather huge offer I might add.

Coach Randy Jordan has extended the scholarship offer to the 6’2″ and 205 pound safety from Wilson, North Carolina.

On receiving an offer from North Carolina

“It was pretty amazing. It’s definitely a dream come true to have that offer and it’s one that I’ve been waiting for since I was young.”

On Coach Jordan & Coach Disch

“Coach Jordan and Coach Disch are real cool. Coach Jordan has been recruiting me for a long time we get along great. Coach Disch started talking to me recently about where I fit in his defense and I like what he’s been telling me. He thinks I could be the ‘Ram’ in his defense, which I guess is like a safety and linebacker.”

On the meaning of the offer from North Carolina

“When UNC offered, it gave me the feeling that I can play college football with the best of the best. That was pretty crazy. Now I got schools like Mississippi State and Florida State and N.C. State coming after me. They haven’t offered, but it feels good.”
