Alabama Football Recruiting reached into south Florida again signing defensive back Daniel Wright.

Wright had over thirty offers, including Texas, Tennessee, USC, Penn State, FSU, Auburn, Georgia, Miami, Florida, Michigan, Michigan State, Notre Dame, Clemson, Ohio State, and Oklahoma.

Wright had been committed to Florida State until December when he flipped his verbal commitment to the Crimson Tide.

Daniel’s older brother Major Wright had a strong career as a Florida Gator but that was not a factor in Daniel’s college choice.
