2018 Houston (Tex.) Second Baptist offensive tackle Victor Curne visited SMU on junior day, and he enjoyed it.
"I like the facilities and I like the coaches," Curne said. "They treated me like they knew me already and like I was a part of the family already."
At SMU, Curne talked with coaches Chad Morris, Chris Scott and Dustin Fry. Morris told Curne about what makes the SMU football program special.
"Coach Morris was saying, if we come to the university, we leave the university as a man. It's more than just football," Curne said.
Curne's favorite part of his was seeing the strength and conditioning facilities.
"I liked seeing the guys on the screen going from day one to where they are now," the junior lineman said. "That's the biggest thing I want to work on, getting better in the weight room."
One of the aspects that makes SMU stand out to Curne is the campus.
"I like how the campus is friendly," he said. "It seems like a nice environment. It reminds me of the school I go to now. It seems like more of a community instead of a school."
Curne followed SMU football closely last year, watching some of their games and going to the game against Houston.
Curne is a three-sport athlete at Second Baptist. In addition to football, he plays basketball and does shotput. Curne has lost eight pounds so far during basketball season, putting him down to 302.
Curne does not currently hold an SMU offer. His only current offer is from TCU. However, he has heavy interest from Arkansas, Michigan State, Oklahoma State and Oklahoma. Curne visited Oklahoma last weekend and he is visiting Texas next weekend. He has a few more visits planned in the spring, including Oklahoma State and Texas A&M.
