From a Bulldog to a ’Nole.

Every new commitment matters for a football program, but pledges from three-star prospects don’t always attract a ton of attention. However, there’s no ignoring the offer list of Florida State’s newest signee, Corey Wren, who inked with the Seminoles today.

Wren (5’9, 170) is an athlete from John Curtis Christian School in New Orleans, Louisiana. The ’Noles were able to land him over offers from Ohio State, Oklahoma, Baylor, TCU, USC, Tennessee, Louisville, Ole Miss, and others, including Georgia, where he was previously committed.

Here’s a quick scouting report on Wren:

The name of the game for Wren is speed. At FSU, he will be a Swiss Army knife for Mike Norvell. We expect Wren to lineup in the backfield, in the slot, and as a kick returner/punt returner. This is a young man who has shown an ability to be dynamic with the ball in his hands.

Wren played his high school ball at Louisiana powerhouse John Curtis and lined up in the backfield, mostly. There was not an angle by a defender that Wren could not outrun. This is the kind of speed FSU has lacked and has desperately needed on offense. You can see Wren’s ability to change the scoreboard as a punt returner. He shows a willingness to catch contested punts and then explode north and south.
