National Signing Day 2014: Renell Wren signs with ASU

Arizona State has landed a potential star at defensive end in Renell Wren.

The Arizona State Sun Devils have a glaring need at defensive end and the letter of intent faxed in by Renell Wren on National Signing Day ensures the Sun Devils are taking steps to address that need.

Entering last season, the Sun Devils appeared to be in solid shape at defensive end with proven commodities Davon Coleman and Junior Onyeali returning to the spot. However, it was senior Gannon Conway who stole the show and earned the starting spot away from the prominent pair.

Now, all three of those defensive ends have moved on from the program and Arizona State is in dire need of improving its depth on the edge. As of now, junior college transfer Marcus Hardison looks like he will get a shot to earn the starting job, but he could be pushed by some of the Sun Devils' new recruits.

On Wednesday, Arizona State receive the official word that St. Louis, Mo. native Renell Wren will be one of those recruits competing for playing time. At 6-foot-5 and 247 pounds, Wren possesses great potential and could be an immediate impact guy as a freshman which will excite the Sun Devil coaching staff.

Wren is considered a 3-star recruit by Rivals, but Scout likes Wren as a 4-star end and ranks him 36th nationally in its positional rankings. Wren's Rivals profile lists his 40-yard dash time at 4.69 seconds which is impressive speed for a player of his size.

Wren had a few different intriguing scholarship offers including Cincinnati, Michigan State, Missouri, and Nebraska. Aside from Arizona State, Wren only took one other official visit and that took place in December when he visited Purdue, according to Rivals.

It will be interesting to see how Wren develops because his highlight film shows a solid motor and active feet and those attributes should sit well with Todd Graham.
