The Virginia Tech Hokies added another commitment to the recruiting class of 2022 on Monday night when Daequan Wright made his choice official.
Wright is a 6-foot-4, 230-pound wide receiver/tight end prospect from Perry High School in Perry, Georgia. He is currently unranked by 247Sports. That should change shortly.
Wright visited the Hokies this month and received his offer back in April. He chose Virginia Tech over Georgia Tech, UCF and Memphis, among others.
It is expected that Wright will begin his career at Virginia Tech as a tight end. He would be the third tight-end commitment in the 2022 class, following Harrison Saint Germain and Matt Hoffman. The Hokies could lose multiple three tight ends following the 2021 season, most notably James Mitchell, to the NFL draft.
In watching Wright, I was impressed. He is obviously not a burner, but he has good enough athleticism and looks natural catching the football. He also plays against some strong competition.
Wright is commitment No. 13 for Tech’s 2022 recruiting class, which ranks No. 26 nationally and No. 4 in the ACC, per 247Sports.
Welcome to Blacksburg, Daequan.
