Darius Curry, one of Georgia’s top defensive backs, will be following in his brother’s footsteps to play at Oklahoma State.
On further thought, Curry says that’s not the case.
The defensive back from Flowery Branch High School picked Oklahoma State over Georgia Tech, while also considering South Carolina, Auburn and Tennessee. His older brother, WR CJ Curry, signed with Oklahoma State last February after de-committing from UGA.
“I didn’t really follow my brother; but now that I’m committed to Oklahoma State, I’d say that’s a plus,” Darius told the AJC. “Before, when I wasn’t committed, I didn’t want to base my decision on CJ. Just because a college was a good fit for him, it didn’t mean it would be for me.
“I’m not just going to go to a place just because my brother is there. But now that I’m committed to Oklahoma State, I’m going to say, yeah, it’s pretty cool that he signed there.”
Georgia Tech was the runner-up over several SEC schools for the 6-foot, 190-pound Curry who is ranked as a 3-star and the No. 31 overall prospect out of Georgia. “I really liked Georgia Tech and their coaches,” Curry said. “I just felt a better connection with Oklahoma State, that’s all.”
Oklahoma State was Curry’s longtime leader, and he felt like Monday was the right time to make a public commitment. “It was already on my mind, and Oklahoma State has been my leader for the longest time. I’ve always liked them. I just couldn’t wait any longer. I wanted to make it official. They have a great coaching staff, the atmosphere is great. I can’t ask for much more. It was pretty much a no-brainer. I pretty much love it there.”
