In-state athlete enjoys visit

Phoenix Brophy linebacker Andrew Curtis recently visited Arizona and came away impressed. Read on to see where he is in the process, other visits, and more.

Due to his strong play during his junior season and a frame that can add a significant amount of weight, Phoenix Brophy linebacker Andrew Curtis is receiving more recruiting attention.

"I achieved what I wanted individually, but we fell short of our team goals," Curtis said. "I put up some nice numbers and was able to show my skills, but at my high school we have a lot of tradition and high expectations, so anytime we don't win state we fell a little short. We're going to work hard and try to win next year."

Curtis plays both ways for Brophy, but college coaches see Curtis playing on the defensive side of the ball.

"Most coaches like me at outside linebacker," Curtis said. "All of them like my size and my ability to play in space."

While Curtis is getting a lot of attention, he is still waiting for more offers.

"I've visited Oregon and Arizona," Curtis said. "I'm getting interest from a number of schools, mainly Oregon, Arizona, Michigan State and Iowa State, and I have offers from Northern Illinois and South Dakota State. I haven't really heard from UCLA or Wisconsin, but they are both schools that I like.<0> Curtis says that he came away impressed with what he saw on his visit to Arizona.

"It was really fun," Curtis said. "I got to talk with and meet the coaching staff. All of them were real cool and down to earth. They are really good coaches and know what they were doing. They just talked to me about the school and the defense and it was all very interesting. I wasn't able to check out the facilities but the coaches say they are being renovated and there is a new end zone project as well."

At this point, Curtis would like to find out more about Arizona.

"It is definitely a place I would like to take another visit to," Curtis said. I haven't gotten an offer from them or anything, but it is a place I could see myself at. I would also like to see the school when the facilities are finished."
