Florida-Based 2018 RB Chris Curry Says Yes to Ed Orgeron and LSU

Chris Curry, one of the premier 2018 tailbacks in the state of Florida, just pulled himself off the market by committing to the LSU Tigers.

Chris Curry, who is currently in Baton Rouge to camp with coach Ed Orgeron and the Tigers, just took it a step further by verbally attaching himself to LSU's 2018 recruiting class.

A product of Lehigh Acres (Fla.) Lehigh Senior, the 5-foot-10, 209-pound Curry checks in as Scout's 32nd-ranked running back in the South, and 82nd-ranked running back nationally.

MichiganFloridaUSCNorth CarolinaWisconsin and Rutgers are some of the additional schools that have dished out offers to Curry. 


Curry, who racked up 1,158 yards and 13 touchdowns during the 2016 season, is a big-bodied back who has reputation for stretching the field for lengthy scores. He also does a nice job of utilizing his frame by breaking through arm tackles and always pumping his legs through contact.

Rarely do you see Curry get taken down by just one defender. Curry is at his best when getting his pads north and south to showcase a punishing style, so he is the type of back who really wears you down over four quarters. Curry is just relentless and aggressive once the tucking away the pigskin.

The Tigers' latest addition also flashes that suddenness when engaging a defender in the trenches, showing the ability to cut and redirect to the outside. This is a punishing back who will have no problem fitting in with the Tigers.

Curry, the 11th-ranked tailback in the Sunshine State, becomes commitment No. 19 in LSU's 2018 recruiting haul.

As always, stay tuned to Scout.
