Profile - David Curry
David and his family made the short trip to Tech for the weekend. “The staff and players at Georgia Tech really went out of their way to make sure we had a great time.” Curry was hosted on the trip by Tech senior B Back Zach Laskey. “He was a great guy. We really hit it off and he made sure that I had the best of times while we were there at Tech."
David was shown what Tech has to offer both athletically and academically. “They took us out to two great places to eat and the food was absolutely the best."
Getting a chance to bond with the players and fellow recruits was the highlight of the trip for David. “Georgia Tech has a great bunch of guys.” David and Mt. Paran athlete Dorian Walker were the only two non-commits among the twelve visitors. David noticed that the commits already seemed like they were a part of the team. “They went out of their way to welcome us.”
The past few weeks Curry has not been at ease with his commit to Virginia. He knew that he had to see if he made the right choice. The visit to Tech showed him that he had a place that was better suited for him and his family. “I’m very happy and now I can sit back and relax."
Georgia Tech Coach Ted Roof sees David as a nickel or bronco type player. He would be a hybrid defensive back and outside linebacker. David played that role at Buford and liked it. “I feel I can have the best of being a safety and an outside linebacker in one role.”
Curry set the visit up knowing that this would be his only visit. “Some other schools wanted me to visit but this is it for me.” David made the decision this weekend in order to be able to enjoy the remainder of his senior year at Buford. ”There will be no more pressure on me from a recruiting standpoint.”
