Football is back, and the final player on our month’s long countdown is the number 0.
Milton Wright – Jr.
Louisville, KY (Chrisitian Academy Louisville)
6’3”, 195 pounds
2021 Projection: Starter
Stop me if you have heard this, but Purdue has a 4-star receiver here! Wright came in as a 4-star and from a team that went 15-0 and won Kentucky’s 2A state championship in 2019. He appeared as a reserve (with five starts) for Purdue in 2019 in 11 games, catching 18 passes for 288 yards and a touchdown. Last year he was the No. 2 target early in the season and was a solid possession receiver, starting all six games. He had 24 receptions for 305 yards and two more scores. Against Illinois he had his first 100 yard game (with a touchdown).
Wright is a very solid outside receiver to pair with David Bell, and will benefit greatly from all he attention Bell gets. He’ll be a key part of the offense for sure.
