West Mesquite 4-star wide receiver Dylan Wright has committed to Texas A&M, he announced Monday on Twitter.

Wright (6-5, 205) went with the Aggies over 32 other Power Five offers. He also considered TCU, Alabama, Oklahoma, Baylor, Georgia, Texas, Texas Tech, Oregon, Ohio State, Michigan and more.

He holds 38 offers overall. He’s ranked as the No. 22 WR in the country and No. 20 overall prospect in the state, per 247Sports.

Wright’s commitment video on Twitter reached 800 retweets and nearly 3,000 likes in less than one day.

According to Dave Campbell’s Texas Football, Wright runs a 4.5 40-yard dash. “The Wranglers should be able to score on anyone with the return of Wright,” the DCTF said in its 2018 preview.

Wright was a first-team all-district pick in 2017 after recording 32 catches for 550 yards and seven touchdowns.
