Jacardia Wright is taking his game to Manhattan as in Kansas, not New York.
Wright, one of the best ever running backs to play for St. Teresa and in Decatur and Macon County, will sign next Wednesday, April 24, at 2:15 to play for Kansas State.
The highly-talented athlete received offers from numerous schools, including the Big Ten.
In addition, his teammates, Seth Gillespey and Tyler Phillips, will sign their commitment papers the next day to Illinois Wesleyan and Rose-Hulman, respectively.
We’ll have more on these developing stories in a future print edition of the Decatur Tribune.
