Curry Commits To USF

The South Florida Bulls added a promising Class of 2006 prospect this week. Dante Curry of Poinciana is ready to pledge his allegiance.

South Florida is on the board in the Class of 2006. Dante Curry, a 6-foot-4 point guard out of Poinciana (Fla.) High, committed to South Florida on Wednesday.

"I'll tell you what," Tina Curry, Dante's mother said, "they've been recruiting him since he was in 9th grade. We live in Poinciana, but I don't know how they heard about him."

South Florida was diligent in its pursuit as places like Tennessee, Wake Forest and Auburn called during the spring. The Bulls were on him longer and harder than any other program. They worked Curry to the point where he was in a comfort zone with USF.

"I do know that he's comfortable there," Tina Curry said. "He went to team camps there. We're from Florida and he's comfortable with his family coming to see him."

According to mom, basketball has always been a huge part of her son's future. "It's a blessing. When he was three, my husband was in the military and away Dante woke up one morning and was watching the NBA. Dante said that he was going to be a basketball player and ever since that day he told me he was going to play basketball. I totally believe it's a calling from God because he's had the talent."
