After visiting TCU in November, Muskogee (Oklahoma) defensive back Kamren Curl is expected back in Forth Worth this weekend on an official visit.
Scout.com caught up with Greg Curl, Kamren’s father, to talk the latest in his recruiting.
“I liked it,” said Greg Curl, regarding the first trip. “TCU has been a school he’s been liking for a while now. They were playing Oklahoma State and it’s obvious they can use him. The campus is nice. The coaches are outstanding there. They have been in the mix for a while and he’s gotten to know them pretty well. He’s comfortable with them.”
TCU is in a stiff competition for Curl with Oklahoma, Arkansas, Nebraska, Ole Miss and Texas. The Longhorns just jumped into his recruitment. Arkansas is expected to visit Thursday night. Oklahoma visited on Monday, after offering just two weeks ago.
“It didn’t bother him. Kamren is not from Oklahoma,” said Greg Curl on the late offer. “We moved here from San Diego. He didn’t grow up idolizing OU. It wasn’t something he was waiting on. With everything else going on, it didn’t bother him. He told Coach (Bob) Stoops, ‘I will give you guys the opportunity to recruit me just like everyone else.’ One of the things he did about Coach Stoops visit on Monday was they laid out a plan for multiple positions. They are looking at him as a safety or a corner.”
Curl will make a decision during the first week of February, meaning his recruitment could definitely have some twists and turns over the month and a half. At the moment he’s scheduled an Ole Miss visit on Jan 27.
“The most important thing to him is comfort,” said Greg Curl. “Coach Patterson told him and a few others told him, ‘football only lasts a couple months of the year. Pick a place where after football is over, you are comfortable in.’”
