Mesquite, Texas ATH Maureese Wren finally had a chance to talk with the coaches this week about setting up the visit to Washington.
The 3-star prospect; listed both as a linebacker and wide receiver in most databases, has had the Huskies high on his list ever since he decommitted from Arkansas and opened his recruitment back up.
Wren (6-3, 215) is such a versatile player that he projects at either side of the ball, but one spot that the Huskies are seeing him as special teams as well.
“I talked to Coach Petersen and he was talking about having me on kick off and punt returns”, Wren said.
“I finally got it scheduled”, Wren said about the visit to Seattle, “I talked to Aaron Burks today and we have it set up for January 19th through 21st.”
Wren had no intention of signing early and so the later visit was expected.
With 22 offers, Wren also might check out Utah, Texas Tech, and Arizona. But the chatter inside recruiting circles is that he is a hard lean to Washington.
“I’m still keeping my options opened”, he said with a laugh.
Wren has been posting stats on offense and defense all season for Horn High School in Texas; nine sacks on defense, nine touchdowns on offense — with 630 receiving yards on 40 catches.
Wren is tough-nosed player who brings a great deal of athleticism and passion to the field. He is a will-imposing guy on either side of the ball and could make an impact wherever he plays.
Right now his team is 9-1, having clinche the league with an undefeated record and they’ll be heading into the playoffs next week.
