VIAN, Okla. — Solomon Wright is headed from Vian to Fayetteville, after flipping his commitment from Texas Tech to Arkansas Friday evening. Wright is one of the top defensive tackles in the state of Oklahoma, and becomes the 14th commitment to the Arkansas class of 2021.

Wright originally committed to Texas Tech in May, and also held offers from Iowa State, Missouri, Oklahoma State, Memphis, and Kansas. The 6'0, 270 lb  high school junior announced his decision Friday night on Twitter. 

Wright becomes the fourth commit of Arkansas' 2021 class from Oklahoma, and the sixth on the defensive side of the football. Defensive line coach Derrick LeBlanc and tight ends coach Jon Cooper led his recruitment.
