North Carolina State University picked up another in-state football recruit from the Class of 2014 on Thursday.
Hunt High School safety Dexter Wright confirmed to HighSchoolOT.com on Thursday evening that he has committed to play football for the Wolfpack.
"There are so many reasons why I chose State, but mainly it was because I just felt like I was at home," Wright said. "I just had a feeling every time I stepped on campus that I hadn't felt on any other campus."
At 6-foot-2 and 205-pounds, Wright is a player that many schools were interested in. The rising senior also had offers from East Carolina and North Carolina.
Wright said Dave Doeren's coaching staff was a big draw at NC State too.
"The new coaching staff is one of a kind. They are a special group of coaches and I look forward to working with them," he said.
Last season, Wright recorded 89 tackles, including four tackles for a loss. He also intercepted three passes and forced two fumbles.
Hunt posted a 13-1 overall record last season, including a perfect 6-0 mark in the Big East 3-A Conference. The Warriors made it all the way to the regional round of the state playoffs before losing to eventual state champion Northern Guilford.
