Defensive lineman Chasz Wright of Woodbridge (Va.) C.D. Hylton has managed to keep his recruiting process relatively quiet up to this point, but that will become increasingly difficult as more and more programs begin to identify his abilities. This weekend Wright took a visit to Penn State for their junior day and has plans for a few more visits.
"The Penn State junior day went very well," said Wright, who is 6-foot-6 and 270-pounds. "I loved the tour of the campus and seeing the stadium. It was an awesome experience."
Wright was equally impressed with the new Penn State coaching staff.

"The coaching staff was great," said Wright. "Coach O'Brien is a respectful and straight forward man. All the other coaches are the same. I built a rapport with Coach Johnson."
Wright is hoping to receive some good news about a possible offer in the future.
"They did not offer, but they said that they look forward to seeing me again soon," said Wright. "I gave them my highlight tape as well, so I am hoping for good feedback."
Several other schools are also recruiting Wright, and he has already had a busy visit schedule.
"West Virginia, Virginia and Virginia Tech are the ones I have visited," said Wright. "I'm also trying to go to Clemson, Wisconsin and Boston College."
Wright, who is being recruited as both a defensive and offensive lineman, has a few early favorites.
"Penn State is catching my interest, as well as Boston College," said Wright. "Clemson and Wisconsin are two other schools I have interest in."
Wright also gave a quick rundown on his junior season.
"The season went well, but we didn't make it to the state championship," said Wright. "I went both ways, playing offensive and defensive tackle. I have allowed only four sacks in three seasons and I had three sacks on the defensive side."
