Recruiting: Georgia DL Matthew Wright chooses Army

Matthew Wright still has glowing words when recalling the camaraderie that he witnessed during an Army football visit months ago.

That camaraderie drew Wright to Army and was one of the major reasons why the Wesleyan (Ga.) defensive end recently joined the Black Knights’ 2025 class.

“When I went up to visit (in January), I kept hearing how Army football is the tightest brotherhood in the world, which was very appealing to me,” Wright said. “I felt like I was cared for on my visit and at home.”

Wright was also offered by Air Force. Army recruited Wright longer than Air Force. And, Wright visited Army and not Air Force.

“With that being said (not visiting Air Force), it would still be difficult for me to chose another academy over Army and what they have to offer,” Wright said.

Wright, who committed to Army on June 19, is the first Georgia commit in the Black Knights’ 2025 class. He plays for the same high school as Army junior offensive Tanner Bivins. Wright, who is 6-foot-4 and 245 pounds, thinks he has the versatility to play outside or inside on Army’ defensive line. He recorded 26 tackles for loss his junior year.

Wright said “another huge factor” in his commitment was “the promising future along with service.”

“I believe Army is one of the best schools in the world filled with amazing opportunities,” Wright said.
