Get to Know Your Orange Man: #39 DB Jake Wright

The local defensive back looks to add some depth to the roster.

Clemson v Syracuse

Name: Jake Wright

Position: Defensive Back

Year: Redshirt Sophomore

Height: 6’ 1

Weight: 202

Hometown: Jamesville, NY

High School: Jamesville-Dewitt

2018 Stats: Did not play, but was a ACC/SU Honor roll guy.

2019 Projections: Still most likely a practice squad player for the Orange. There’s a good bit of depth around the secondary.

How’d He Get Here?: He was a PWO in 2018, doing PWO things. For that matter, he may have walked from his house in Jamesville.

What’d Recruiting Sites Say?: No ratings from the main sites.

Money Quote: Per Nate Mink, Wright was taken off guard when then coach Kim McCloud reached out with the PWO offer.

“When I first found out about it, I was like, ‘Woah,” Wright said. “I couldn’t really believe it at first. As I kept going on through my senior season, I knew it could be a reality.”

Twitterfeed: Nothing we can find.

Tweets Of Wonder: Some random footage of Wright wrestling in high school.

What movie would Dino Babers recommend for him?: In the comedy mold, Dino would have Jake check out Shaun of the Dead, the 2004 zom-com from director Edgar Wright. If you haven’t seen it, it’s pretty hilarious.

Interesting Nugget O’Interest: Wright was offered wrestling scholarships from Buffalo, Lycoming and Sacred Heart among others.

Let’s Get A Good Look Atcha: Wright’s highlight film from back at JD.
