Pack Offers Curry

NC State has made an early offer to Flowery Branch (GA) junior cornerback Darius Curry. Pack Pride has the latest on Curry's recruitment.

Darius Curry has managed to keep a low profile in spite of his huge upside. That's a rarity in the recruiting world these days.

Curry, a 6-1, 170-pound cornerback from Flowery Branch, Georgia, has the kind of size and athleticism that coaches covet in players at the position. Three schools -- NC State, Oklahoma State and Tennessee -- have already verbally offered Curry, so colleges clearly like his ability.

"I've had those offers for about four months," Curry told Pack Pride recently. "At the end of my sophomore year my dad sent tape out to a few colleges that were high on my list and they responded pretty well. That's when they offered."

So far the only school Curry has visited is Oklahoma State.

"It was great," he said of his time with the Cowboys. "Especially since they've put a lot of money into their facilities. I'd have to say that was a great visit. I like Coach Gundy and Coach Jones. They made me feel at home."

Though he has never been to Tennessee or NC State, Curry said both schools are high on his list because of the early offers.

"I don't know a whole lot about them," he said of NC State. "But I'm definitely interested. I definitely intend on visiting there. I'm just not sure when it's going to be yet.

"I was at North Hall (High School) when I found out about their offer. Me and my brother didn't get a chance to do spring football but our coach came up to us anyways and said, 'You got another offer today. It's from NC State.' I was excited because I've heard it's a good school."

Curry plans on attending the Florida-Florida State game at the end of the season. He's also hoping to make it to Oklahoma State's game against the Sooners.

"I'm just looking for a place I can call home, especially since I'm going to be away from my parents. I haven't been away from my parents much," he said. "I have to make sure I get along with the coaches well and fit into whatever system they've got."

Flowery Branch is 9-0 on the year with one regular season game remaining. Curry is a cornerback but has been playing a little more safety recently because of injuries.
