Recruiting: 10 Questions With Daruis Curry

GoPokes.com is contacting as many Oklahoma State commitments as possible leading up to National Signing Day. We are asking each of them the same 10 questions, some football related and others not, in an attempt to give fans a chance to get to better know their future Cowboy. Check back as we lead up to Feb. 6 for more questions and answers with the OSU stars of the future.

What about Oklahoma State first caught your eye?
Curry: Definitely the facilities. I've been to a lot of schools to visit and Oklahoma State is top notch – weight room, locker room, training room – in pretty much everything. Then, on top of that, the coaching staff. There isn't a better coaching staff in the nation. Those are the two things that really caught my eye about Oklahoma State.

What was your deciding factor in committing to the Cowboys?
Curry: It was definitely those first two things as well as having a chance at early playing time, somewhere I could compete for a spot. At Oklahoma State, I'll have the chance to get some quality reps my freshman year. That's something I like.

What are three words or phrases that describe you as a person?
Curry: Smart, good personality and humble.

What are three words or phrases that describe you as a football player?
Curry: Big, physical and fast.

What is your favorite thing to do on the football field?
Curry: Definitely hitting people. There's nothing like having a big hit during a game.

What is your favorite thing to do off the football field?
Curry: Hanging out with friends and playing video games.

If you don't go on to play in the NFL, what would you like to do?
Curry: I would definitely want to be a coach.

What are you most looking forward to in terms of playing for Oklahoma State?
Curry: I think we have a good enough team to do this, so I would say winning a national championship.

What do you feel will be your biggest challenge in moving from high school to college?
Curry: I've talked to my brother (C.J. Curry) about this; he's a receiver at Oklahoma State now. He said it's definitely the speed of the game. I believe it. I know the speed of the game is going to be a lot different.

Who is the one player on Oklahoma State's roster, or in your recruiting class, that you are most excited to be teammates with next season?
Curry: That would definitely be Deric Robertson. He's a safety (from Killeen High School, Texas). Me and him have gotten along really well. We've been texting each other back and forth all the time.
