DVC’s Wright headed to Illinois State

More recruiting news coming from Diablo Valley College. Safety Paul Wright, a 2006 De La Salle graduate, is headed to Illinois State. DVC coach Mike Darr said Wright (6-foot, 198-pounds)  told him of his decision on Tuesday.

To make the jump to the college level as a safety, it seems like DVC is the place to be these days. All-Golden Gate Conference safety Jeremy Gibson signed with Idaho State after the 2007 season and 2006 DVC standout James Francis is now in the Canadian Football League. Wright will be reunited with fellow former Spartan and Viking Chris Garrett, who plays cornerback at Illinois State. The Redbirds play in the Missouri Valley Football Conference and are a Football Championship Subdivision (the artist formerly known as Division I-AA) school.
