Curry’s stock continues to ascend

For far too long, Arkansas native Eric Curry competed on the EYBL circuit without gaining much in the way of publicity. A solid, double-digit scorer for the Arkansas Wings, he has raised his profile in recent weeks and performed very effectively at the Lawson/Oladipo Camp.

Eric Curry is on his way to becoming a modern, hybrid forward. The 6-8, 200-pound prospect from Little Rock still must add polish as a handler, passer and jump shooter, but he has made impressive progress in those areas and already possesses admirable versatility as a defender and transition scorer.

College coaches have appreciated his development as well and are beginning to see a player who, with time to further mature, could become a multi-faceted weapon at the next level.

Curry understands what he brings to the table and how he can further entrench himself in the minds of major conference coaches.

”My thing is being able to come out to the perimeter and bring big guys out to stretch the floor,” Curry said. “People are recruiting me as a stretch four. I need to be more consistent and still need to work on being out on the perimeter more.”

Not surprisingly, Curry’s offer list has expanded significantly of late.

SMU, Iowa State, Oklahoma State, Arkansas, Alabama, Saint Louis, Minnesota, there’s a lot of them coming at me pretty hard right now,” Curry said with a laugh. “All of those are offers. The Minnesota, Arkansas and Iowa State ones are new.”

Curry added that he’s receiving interest from Vanderbilt, Iowa and Memphis, and that Oregon has placed a call as well.

He’ll enjoy one final evaluation leg in which to win more offers. The Wings will compete in Las Vegas to close out the month and, following that, Curry will initiate the process of trimming his list and setting up official visits for the late summer and fall.

Curry presently slots as a three star prospect but could earn a fourth star by the time we next update our rankings.
