Florida State lands elite safety recruit Daniel Wright

New, 39 comments

FSU gets an elite safety.

Daniel Wright, the little brother of former Florida Gator great Major Wright, committed to Florida State Wednesday after consistently having FSU leading throughout his recruiting process. Wright is 6'1, 187 pounds and is rated four stars. He's been on FSU's radar since his freshman year and is one of the school's top priorities at defensive back. Wright has played for Ft. Lauderdale (Fla.) Cardinal Gibbons, but may be transferring to St. Thomas Aquinas.

In this video interview, above, Wright raved about his relationship with defensive coordinator Charles Kelly, as well as defensive assistant Jeremiah Wilson and his area recruiter, Bill Miller, who coaches linebackers for Florida State.

Wright has more than 30 offers, including most of the elites in the country. He is rated the 12th overall safety and the 129th overall player by the 247Sports Composite Rankings.

Wright already has plans to bring other players to Florida State, and isn't shy about his love for the school.

"The environment here and the family connection," Wright said when asked what it was that put FSU over the top.
