Versatile athlete commits to the ‘Noles

One of the nation’s fastest athletes has committed to FSU in three-star prospect Corey Wren.

The new coaching staff has emphasized speed from the get-go and they have landed one of the best options in the country in that facet.

The Louisiana native attended local powerhouse John Curtis and left his mark in a huge way both on the track and the gridiron. On the field he amassed over one thousand yards on just ninety-eight carries, to go along with seventeen touchdowns. He also contributed in the pass game with two touchdowns including a fifty-four yard score.

His track records are even more impressive as he is a two-time state 60m champion and has run in the 10.4 range multiple times in the 100m dash. Wren exhibits this in his speed on the field and his numbers back that up at 22.2 yards per catch and 11.7 yards per carry during his senior season.

Coach Norvell and his staff have worked with this kind of athlete at Memphis with Tony Pollard, who was used as a running back, wide receiver and kick returner en route to being a 4th round pick for the Dallas Cowboys. Norvell used him in key situations and exposed mismatches multiple times against the defense due to Pollard’s speed, I expect the same for Wren in the long term.

Wren could see an impact on special teams and as a third-down game-breaker early on in his career.

Wren also adds to a newly replenished running back room and the staff will still aim for one more at the position.
