Wright starred at Farragut Academy, where he shared the court with NBA legend Kevin Garnett.

He averaged more than 15 points per game in three seasons with the Wildcats and was a second-round pick of the Knicks 2001, though he never made the roster.

He was part of Arizona’s Final Four team in 2001.
