Darius Curry talks Junior Day

Darius Curry, cornerback from Flowery Branch, Ga., has reeled in several scholarship offers. He visited Tuscaloosa this weekend for their second Junior Day event. Curry talked about his trip and shared what the coaching staff had to say.


"The visit to Alabama was great," said Darius Curry. "I got to meet with coach Kirby [Smart], coach Pruitt and Nick Saban a little bit. We got a tour around the campus. They have a very nice program. Overall the trip was very good.

"Of course I like all the coaches. They kept emphasizing academics and being coach by Nick Saban. He is the best DB coach in the country. We will be in press man 99-percent of the time. That is what they do in the NFL. You will be prepared when you get to the league."

The coaching staff likes Curry's size (6-1, 190) and want to evaluate a little closer in the spring and summer.

"Coach Saban and I didn't have a long talk," Curry said. "He came up to me and Kirby [Smart]. He saw how big I was. He said he is looking forward to getting me in camp.

"Coach Smart and coach Pruitt were saying how they like my size and everything. They want to see how I do in camp. They are going to come see me in spring practice. They want to see how I work. Hopefully I can get that offer from them."

Curry shared about his interest in the Crimson Tide.

"They have good tradition," he said. "They have a very great program. They have great coaches. All of the coaches were great. I went to their game against Arkansas this past year. They have a great football environment. They know what they are doing with their DBs."

Curry has several scholarship offers including Duke, Mississippi State, Missouri, North Carolina State, Oklahoma State, Purdue, Tennessee and Western Kentucky. His brother, C.J. Curry, signed with Oklahoma State in February.

Curry wil visit Arkansas March 3rd.
