During his time in New York, he would split his time between the first and B teams.

In April 2016, Wright signed with Schalke 04, making his debut in the same month for the Under-19 team in their game against Borussia Mönchengladbach. He would score two goals in that game.

Wright has so far represented the United States at the youth national team level. He would first suit up for the Under-15 team in 2013, followed by promotion to the Under-17 team. He would go on to score 27 goals in 34 appearances for the team.
