Wilcox's Dwight signs with Alabama

Rochelle — Wilcox High’s reputation of being a pipeline for major college recruiters became enhanced even more when Patriot senior Johnny Dwight cast his lot with Alabama on National Signing Day.

Having given a verbal commitment to the national powerhouse Crimson Tide last summer, the 6-foot-3, 295-pound Dwight put his pen where his mouth had been when he signed his scholarship offer on Wednesday.

A four-year lettermen and three-year starter for coach Mark Ledford’s Patriots, Wright was the lone area gridder to sign on the first day it could officially be done.

However, head coaches Lee Campbell of Crisp County, Jimmy Hughes of Dooly County and Ron Drummonds of Crisp Academy all said they anticipate having players sign with non-FBS schools within the next week or so. Fullington coach Jerry Breeden said he had no potential signees.
