With Robert Griffin III already in the fold, adidas doubles up on Baylor University first rounders by also signing his favorite target, Kendall Wright of the Tennessee Titans.

“I’m excited to officially join the adidas family,” said Wright.  “I wore adidas at my Pro Day and in minicamps and really like their workout gear and super lightweight cleats.”

Wright broke or tied 16 school records at Baylor, including career receptions and receiving yards. He started all four seasons for the Bears and was named All-Big 12 three years straight. Last season, Wright caught 108 balls for 1,663 yards and 14 touchdowns, all school records. The Titans selected Wright with their first round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft.

“Kendall Wright is one of the most dynamic wide receivers entering the league this year,” said Mark Daniels, director of football for adidas America. “His record-breaking career at Baylor showed off his speed and athleticism that will allow him to make an immediate impact at this professional level.”

At Titans mini-camp, Wright wore the 7.9 ounce adiZero 5-Star Mid, the lightest mid cleat in the game and he’ll continue to wear footwear from the lightest in class adizero collection next season.

A native of Pittsburg, Texas, Wright visited the FOX Sports Southwest Texas 7-on-7 State Championships presented by adidas this week to coach players, show off adizero cleats and gloves and meet fans.

“Football is life in Texas,” said Wright.  “Growing up, I tried out a lot of different football gear but nothing compares to what I’m wearing now with adidas.  The kids I’m showing adidas to at the Texas 7on 7 can’t believe it either.  Players pick up the cleats I’m wearing and keep saying they feel as light as track shoes.”
