Wagner is a medium midfielder with excellent speed and endurance and a good user of the ball. Smart player who is composed with the football in his hands. Impressive for Queensland in the NAB AFL U18 Championships and the TAC Cup. Member of Brisbane Lions Academy.

Queensland coach Adrian Fletcher said:

"Corey fits in perfectly with the modern game with his running. He does not slow in his speed at any time of the game. He is always up and about." - AFL.com.au

"He’s not far behind Ben Keays – he’s been brilliant for two years in my program. Played out on the wing and I put him as an inside mid this year, and really excelled in that position. Can run out of congestion and used the ball well and he is a great decision maker. He’s filled out a bit but obviously mids are getting bigger at AFL, so time will tell. I’m sure that he’ll grow a little bit as well." - SEN

North Recruiting Manager Bryce Lewis said:

"He represented Queensland through all the state programs. He's a versatile ball-winner who's creative, is also a strong runner and shows a bit of toe exiting the contests. He's a mid/forward but can also play some roles potentially down back."
