Brandon Curry down to two schools?

University of Pittsburgh Head Football Coach Dave Wannstedt is currently attempting to rebuild the Panthers offensive and defensive lines. The class of 2007 has heavily focused on the offensive line and blue-chip lineman Brandon Curry remains on Pitt's top prospects. Is he down to two schools? Read on.

"I'm just returning from an official visit to Florida State," stated hulking offensive tackle prospect Brandon Curry (6-foot-6 inches, 300 pounds) from Boyd H. Anderson High School in Lauderdale Lakes, FL.

"I had a good time there this weekend. The coaches and the players kept telling me they needed offensive tackles with my size and ability."

Curry was a first-team All-County selection as a junior. He went the entire season without allowing a sack. Brandon has primarily played right tackle. He is capable of bench pressing 340 pounds and running the forty-yard dash in 5.3 seconds.

"Right now, my top two schools are Pittsburgh and Florida State. I'm still going to visit Louisiana-Lafayette (12/2). Ole Miss and Clemson may be in the picture as well. Ole Miss wants me to visit. Pittsburgh and Florida State have been recruiting me the longest and hardest."

When asked why the Seminoles have yet to extend him a scholarship offer, Curry quickly replied, "The coaches there told me they haven't seen my senior film yet. I guess their going to get back to me really soon on the offer."

"I'm still really like the Pittsburgh program. They have been recruiting really hard for a while. I recently sent Coach (Dave) Wannstedt and Coach (Charlie) Partridge a "Happy Thanksgiving" text message. My visit there was great and I know they are really thin on the offensive line."

Curry visited the Panthers the weekend of October 21st when the Panthers played the Rutgers Scarlet Knights. The Panthers are in desperate need of offensive tackles. Pitt has already received verbal commitments from 6-foot-7 inch, 300 pound Jordan Gibbs from Millersville, PA, 6-foot-7 inch, 310 pound Dan Matha from Erie, PA and 6-foot-5 inch, 280 pounds John Fieger from Pennsburg, PA.

"You can't get much better than my top two so Pitt's in a great position. I'm going to try to make my mind up after the holidays."
