ATHENS — The University of Georgia football team has another wide receiver to its 2020 recruiting class.
Corey Wren, a 5-foot-9, 170-pound three-star recruit out of New Orleans, has announced his commitment to the Bulldogs.
Playing out of the backfield in his junior year of high school, Wren rushed for 886 yards and 10 touchdowns on 82 carries. He had seven receptions for 95 yards as well, according to 247sports.
When speaking with 247sports.com, Wren said he believes his role at the University of Georgia will be different from what he had in high school. He expects to mostly be used as a slot receiver as well as a kickoff return and punt return.
Wren could fit into any of these roles as he is one of the class’s fastest prospects. As a track standout at John Curtis High School, Wren posted 100-meter times below 11 seconds, with his best times all being around 10.4 seconds.
Wren chose Georgia over Arizona State University and the University of Houston.
Wren’s commitment follows that of Marcus Rosemy, a four-star wide receiver out of Fort Lauderdale, lastThursday.
The 6-2, 187-pound prospect is ranked 39th overall and sixth among wide receivers in the 2020 class. Among all Florida recruits, he ranks No.4, according to 247sports.
Rosemy’s high school, St. Thomas Aquinas of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, is considered one of the nation’s top high school programs, and he has frequently played top competition.
While he is reliable in catching the ball in high traffic situations, Rosemy lacks true downfield threat. He has size and short-distance explosiveness, and he will be best used as a possession receiver
247sports.com predicts he could develop into an early round draft prospect by the end of his collegiate career.
