The Boise State football team landed a late commitment Sunday afternoon from junior college transfer Deven Wright, a three-star edge rusher from Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College.
Wright originally committed to UAB in late October before opening his recruitment back up a few weeks ago.
Boise State coach Andy Avalos, defensive coordinator Spencer Danielson, edge coach Stacy Collins and defensive line coach Frank Maile visited Wright at his home on Thursday, according to a picture Wright posted to his Twitter account.
The 6-foot-5, 230-pound Wright is a native of Clarksdale, Mississippi. He’s the second junior college prospect to commit to Boise State’s 2022 recruiting class, joining Snow College defensive lineman Cortez Hogans Jr.
Wright, who graduated from Desoto Central high School in Southaven, Mississippi, in 2019, just finished his second season at Mississippi Gulf Coast. He had 34 tackles and 7.5 sacks this past season.
Wright had offers from UAB, Western Kentucky, Middleton Tennessee State, Arkansas State, Charlotte, Kent State and Old Dominion, according to 247Sports.
Boise State now has 18 known commitments in the 2022 class. National Signing Day, when a player can sign a Letter of Intent and make his commitment official, is on Wednesday.
