Curry Favors Jackets For Weekend Visit

Cornerback Darius Curry came to Atlanta not knowing what to expect on his visit, but left town with an offer and a new outlook on Georgia Tech.

"It went real well," Curry said of the Saturday visit. "They have a great campus and great coaches."

The 2013 recruit out of Flowery Branch (GA) High School had the chance to meet with his recruiting coach, Charles Kelly and see the full complement of facilities Georgia Tech Football has to offer. Curry was taken on a tour to see the new indoor practice fields, locker room, study hall and the academic side of campus. In general, Curry said he was pleased with what he saw.

"When I was in the locker room with my family, I was told that (head coach) Paul Johnson wanted to see me," Curry said. "So I went up to his office and he told me I had an offer to play at Georgia Tech."

Excited about the offer, Curry said he didn't know what to expect about the trip but was happy with the way it ended. Standing 6-foot-1, 190 pounds, Curry was told by Kelly that since he is a bigger cornerback, he's a good fit for the mold that Kelly likes when it comes to big, physical corners.

That's good news for Georgia Tech, because Curry said his final decision will hinge a lot on immediate playing time. He wants to play for a program that will allow him to do so, and if Georgia Tecg can assure him of that, he will definitely consider the Yellow Jackets.

But right now, Curry is going to listen to all offers and take a wait-and-see approach in the process. With offers all over the country (Oklahoma State, Tennessee and Purdue have also offered), Georgia Tech may hold the home-state advantage, but they'll have to assure Curry of more than that if they want him to play on the Flats on Saturdays.
