BREAKING: Speed demon WR Corey Wren backs off his Georgia commitment
Louisiana native Corey Wren was one of the most electric commitments for Georgia in the 2020 class.
That’s right. Was. Wren is no longer committed to play for Georgia. It also sounds like the Louisiana native plans to evaluate new options and will fully reopen his recruiting process.
The 3-star ATH with 10.41 speed in the 100 meters now has some serious thinking to do about his college future.
He also said that he will likely not be considering the Bulldogs going forward.
“Honestly no,” Wren said. “Just a situation I didn’t feel was right for me as the time passed. All respect to the coaching staff, players and the fan base.”
The decision drops Georgia down to 15 public commitments for the 2020 cycle.
Georgia now only has commitments at the receiver position from 4-star Florida resident Marcus Rosemy and 4-star Georgian Justin Robinson for the 2020 cycle. Rosemy rates as the nation’s No. 6 and the nation’s No. 40 overall prospect. Robinson comes in at No. 58 and No. 328 in those same ratings, respectively.
Wren rates as the nation’s no. 25 ATH and No. 520 overall prospect for the 2020 cycle on the 247Sports Composite ratings. The 5-foot-9, 175-pound Wren has been a dynamic playmaker for John Curtis Christian in Louisiana for the last two seasons.
He chose the Bulldogs over Arizona State and Houston back on June 21. When he did, he cited a connection to receivers coach Cortez Hankton and the culture of competition within the Georgia program.
“Iron sharpens iron,” Wren said this summer. “I have [Georgia] in my top 3 because I know I’ll be competing against some of the best in college football. Future NFL players. I wanna learn from that.”
Georgia’s other options at WR now for the 2020 cycle
The Bulldogs are also actively pursuing other targets in the 2020 class to add even more vertical stretch-the-field ability for their WR room. Arian Smith, a 4-star speedster with Wren’s top-level speed, is expected to take an official visit to UGA next week.
Smith recently narrowed down his finalists to Alabama, Georgia and Florida. He also plans to run track at his future college destination. The Lakeland High standout (Lakeland, Fla.) ranks as the nation’s No. 14 WR and the No. 75 overall prospect.
Georgia also recently hosted 4-star LSU commit Jermaine Burton over the last week, too. The Georgia native played his last two seasons of high school football out in California.
He rates as the nation’s No. 8 WR and the No. 44 overall prospect in the 2020 class.
Georgia also recently hosted 4-star WR Marcus Fleming on an official visit for the Texas A&M game. Fleming, a recent Miami de-commit, now has Georgia among his final five schools.
Fleming, another 4-star target, rates as the nation’s No. 43 WR and the No. 245 overall prospect for this cycle.
