Chasz Wright was a mainstay on the offensive line for the Nittany Lions that won the 2016 Big Ten Championship and the 2017 Fiesta Bowl. Following college, Wright was not selected in the NFL Draft, but was invited to attend rookie minicamp with the Buffalo Bills. He was also added to the XFL Draft draft pool last fall.
In his five years on campus at Penn State Wright appeared in 48 games clearing the way for running backs Saquon Barkley and Miles Sanders and protecting quarterback Trace McSorley. Wright made 16 starts including the Big Ten title game and the Rose Bowl. In the 2017 season, he took the field in 12 of 13 games, starting nine times. He finished his career at PSU making two starts as a redshirt senior while appearing in 12 games. He says the competition in the Big Ten improved his football focus.
Wright, who makes his home in Woodbridge, VA, graduated in May of 2018 with a degree in telecommunications.
