The Oklahoma Sooners lost the commitment of a running back in the days surrounding leading up to the early signing period. While depth remains a strong suit of the position, Matt and I deemed the loss a non-issue on this week’s podcast. Apparently, the coaching staff disagreed with our assessment of the situation.
On Thursday evening, Corey Wren became the most recent recipient of a scholarship offer from the University of Oklahoma and for good reason. Listed as an athlete on various recruiting sites, the 5’9” product out of New Orleans possesses elite speed on the offensive side of the ball. Posting a time of 4.31 in the 40-yard dash as a high school senior, Wren would be a complimentary runner to any ball carriers on the roster.
With a low center of gravity, Wren doesn’t need to slow down in order to change direction. An elusive runner with speed, this recruit is certainly a homer in threat every time he touches the ball. However, any program in country could immediately put Wren to use in punt and kick returns.
Recently reopening himself to the recruiting process on December 4th, Wren initially pledged with the Georgia Bulldogs. Despite what happened, the Sooners look to benefit with a late charge.
