Phoenix (Ariz.) Mountain Pointe offensive guard Natrell Curtis was supposed to go to UCLA's Junior Day two weekends ago, but couldn't make it at the last minute. However, UCLA is still recruiting him hard.
"UCLA is probably one of the schools recruiting me hardest," Curtis said. "They haven't offered yet but I think they're going to soon. Coach Klemm is a great guy and a great coach, and we've got a good relationship. It's the type of relationship I'd like to have with any coach."
Curtis, the sixth ranked guard nationally, has offers from much of the Pac-12, including the local schools Arizona and Arizona State, Colorado, Nebraska, Washington, and California, among others.
Even with plenty of offers, Curtis says he still goes back and forth on making a decision.
"Some days I think I want to get the process over with, and some days I think I want to wait," Curtis said. "It's the kind of thing where I think I'll know when the time is right and make my decision, but it could be any time."
Curtis said that he and two of his teammates, including wide receiver Jalen Brown cornerback Dominique Festermacher, will be out in Los Angeles for the Nike Football Training Camp (NFTC) on March 10th, and that they might try to take unofficial visits to the LA schools during that weekend.
Incoming UCLA freshman Kenny Lacy also played for Mountain Pointe, which could prove influential in the recruitment of the trio.
As it stands, Curtis has no other visits definitively planned. He has said previously that he would prefer to play college football in California, which would put UCLA, USC, Stanford, and California firmly in the running for him.
"Right now, I don't have anything set in stone," Curtis said. "I'm sure I'll do some visits this spring."
