With the loss of departed seniors Ryan Robinson, Nigel Nicholas and Cooper Bassett, Wren is likely to immediately compete for a starting role. The transfer from Arizona Western Community College is already enrolled at OSU and will participate in spring football.

The two four-star prospects could compete for early time up front. According to Rivals, Perkins is the highest-rated recruit in the Big 12 at No. 41 overall.
