Curtis talks WFU official visit

Orlando (Fla.) Olympia player, Shawn Curtis, may be ready to make his decision in the next two weeks after taking his final official visit to Wake Forest over the weekend. It's been a whirlwind month for the 6-foot-5, 270-pound offensive lineman who took visits to Mississippi State, Syracuse, Iowa State, and Wake Forest in consecutive weeks.

"The visit was great, "said Shawn Curtis. "I enjoyed myself. I got along with with the players and coaches. They're all great people. My host was Tyler Cameron, a redshirt freshman quarterback. It was nice that they had a lot of the committed recruits there. They all seemed like real good guys."

While on the visit, Curtis got to spend some time with his potential offensive line coach, Jonathan Himebauch.

"He's a really nice guy who I enjoyed being around," Curtis said on Himebauch. "He told me how they're short of offensive lineman and if I came I'd have a good chance of playing early."

Curtis got to watch Michael Campanaro's big offensive show and see the Demon Deacons notch their third ACC victory of the season against visiting Boston College.

"It a great environment," Curtis said of his time in Groves Stadium. "Even though the team's a little down this year, they bring a lot of energy to the game."

Although Curtis said nothing is set in stone, he is expecting to have a decision made soon regarding college.

"If I don't commit this week," he stated, "I'll likely commit the week after. I feel like I've reached the end and need to make my decision. One my visits I took notes on each school listing their pros and cons. I'm going to go back and look what I wrote down and consider everything.

"Wake Forest is a good possibility. My parents obviously love it because of the great academics and they own property in the area. Mississippi State, Iowa State, and Syracuse also have a lot of positives too so I'm going to look at each one carefully before making my commitment."

Curtis's father made the visit to Winston-Salem with his son. This weekend his team, the Titans, will play their final regular season game again Mainland before starting the Florida 8A playoffs.
