Big Run On Darius Curry This Week

Oklahoma State will hope it can keep it in the family as Darius Curry of Flowery Branch is one of the highest-rated 2013 cornerback prospects in the nation. The 6-1, 190-pound Curry happens to be the younger brother of C.J. Curry, who signed Feb. 1 with the Cowboys as a wide receiver in the 2012 recruiting class. This is not a brother deal as both for the Currys can stand on their own talents.

C.J. is a very explosive and talented wide receiver, but Darius is actually rated higher initially in the 2013 class. His recruiting blew up this week with no fewer than four offers coming in and several high powered schools on the verge of extending invitations.

Darius had said that Oklahoma State, which offered very early, is one of his favorites at this point, joining Tennessee and North Carolina State. Joining OSU, Tennessee and North Carolina State in making offers to Curry are Mississippi State and Purdue, Vanderbilt, Missouri and Georgia Tech (all offering this past week).

Curry also says he is very interested in Clemson, which seems to be close to offering. Alabama and LSU have also shown interest.

Curry's father, Felix, is a former safety and four-year starter in college, and is also coaching at Flowery Branch High School. He gets good training on the field and is a coach's son, with a father that played in the secondary. All of that is a bonus.

Curry played in the AT&T Georgia Junior Bowl this past December highlighting the top junior players in the state. He played some offense as well last season and there is some conjecture in the recruiting world that he would make a fine wide receiver like his brother, but Darius seems to prefer the more physical world on the defensive side of the ball.
