- Baylor's receptionist - San Antonio Express-News- There are the YouTube videos of Wright's acrobatic dunks at Pittsburg High, the fact that the 5-foot-10 receiver has enjoyed practice sessions with the vaunted Bears basketball team, the talk back and forth. Wright, an inside and outside receiving threat for star quarterback Robert Griffin III, arrives at the Valero Alamo Bowl already as Baylor's single-season record-holder with 1,655 all-purpose yards. In scorching Texas for six catches and 166 yards two weeks ago — giving him at least one catch in all 49 games of his Baylor career — he broke the university yardage mark set by Judson-ex Jerod Douglas in 1995. The Huskies have yielded at least 300 passing yards in seven games and 21 touchdown passes — at least one a game — against 10 interceptions. [...] as part of a powerful Baylor offense that ran up 557 yards against Texas' defense, the soft-spoken player has made his presence known in loud fashion this season. A superb multisport athlete, Wright was a two-time state champion in the triple jump and the 2007 titlist in the long jump.
