ASU Football: 3-Star defensive end Renell Wren commits to Arizona State

Christian Petersen

Arizona State picked up its second recruit of the day in 3-star defensive end Renell Wren.

Todd Graham is known for his "Boom Bus," but the Sun Devil football coach may need to invest in a "Boom Plane" at the rate he's picking up recruits.

On Tuesday evening, recruiting analyst Rob Cassidy reported that 3-star defensive end prospect Renell Wren gave a verbal commitment to Arizona State.

Wren became the second recruit to commit to Arizona State on Tuesday as he joined 3-star offensive lineman Quinn Bailey of Higley High School in Gilbert, Ariz.

Wren hails from Lutheran North High School in St. Louis, Missouri and stands 6-foot-6 while weighing in at just 247 pounds. Wren's body type isn't exactly prototypical for an Arizona State defensive end, so it will be interesting to see how the coaching staff approaches integrating Wren into the scheme.

Wren's junior year highlight film and listed 40-yard dash time of 4.69 show that he has excellent speed for his frame and that could mean that Arizona State will consider him as a candidate to play Devil backer. Carl Bradford held down that position this year, but the Sun Devils' are in a predicament in terms of finding capable replacements and backups with the athleticism to rush the passer at that position. ranks Wren as the 12th best recruit in the state of Missouri and ranks Wren as the 63rd best defensive end in the country.

Wren's profile lists Arizona State as his only Pac-12 offer, but the 3-star defensive end also touts offers from prominent programs including Michigan State, Missouri and Nebraska.

Wren becomes the 25th commitment for Arizona State in the class of 2014 and the Sun Devils still have a number of priority targets they are looking at. The Sun Devils only have 26 scholarships to allot for the class of 2014 so there is a good chance that there will be some shuffling in the weeks leading up to Signing Day on Feb. 5.
