FSU football coach Mike Norvell and his staff continue to put the finishing touches on his first ever Seminole recruiting class.
On Sunday night, running back/wide receiver prospect Corey Wren from John Curtis High School in New Orleans committed to Florida State.
Wren, who is 5-foot-9 and 170 pounds, figures to line up as a running back/slot receiver hybrid position in Norvell’s offense. He had committed to Georgia this summer before de-committing from the Bulldogs in December. Wren made an official visit to Maryland last month, but the Terrapins are not in Wren’s top 5. According a tweet Wren sent out on Dec. 28,, FSU, Louisville, Oklahoma State, Oklahoma and TCU were the five schools from which he made his decision.
Wren will join Lawrance Toafili, Texas A&M transfer Jashaun Corbin and Ladamian Webb as one of four new running backs on FSU’s roster for season. Webb committed to FSU last week, Corbin is already enrolled in classes for the spring semester and Toafili will arrive on campus this summer.
FSU already has two true freshmen wide receivers enrolled for the spring semester in Bryan Robinson and Ja’Khi Douglas. Another wide receiver signee, Kentron Poiter, will also arrive on campus this summer. Venice (Fla.) High receiver Malachi Wideman remains committed to FSU but is unsigned.
At John Curtis, Wren was a part of one of the best offensive backfields in the state of Louisiana. He and quarterback Collin Guggenheim, who is committed to Army, combined for over 2,300 rushing yards this season. Wren did most of his damage on the ground, where he rushed for 1,146 yards and 17 touchdowns on just 98 carries. He also caught six passes for 132 yards and amassed 272 return yards for the season.
Wren is also a talented track athlete. According to 247Sports, he is a two-time Louisiana Division I indoor 60-meter champion and has recorded a personal-best 6.80 seconds in that event. He has also reportedly been clocked in the 10.4s in the 100 meters on several occasions in his track career.
