TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Arizona middle-linebacker Scooby Wright released the following statement on his decision to enter the 2016 NFL Draft:
I want to announce I have decided to enter the 2016 NFL Draft. I couldn't have asked to be around a better group of people than I have been with over the last three years here at Arizona.
Coming out of high school, I only had one scholarship offer and that was Arizona; they took a chance on me and for that I am thankful to Coach Rodriguez. I am forever grateful for all my coaches, from the strength coaches to defensive coordinator Jeff Casteel for making me the player I am today. I also want to thank the Wildcat Nation for their support and encouragement the last three years.
This past season, I have faced a lot of adversity, but at the end of the day it has made me a better man and human being. I am truly blessed and humbled to be in the position I am today to have the opportunity to go chase my dream that I have had since I first started playing this great game.
Once again, thank you to everybody who has supported and helped me get to where I am today.
