The Player Speaks: RRS’s Matt Clare talked with Curl about his commitment to Texas Tech, and his visit was truly a family affiar (which is pretty cool) and knew he wanted to commit to Texas Tech after the visit:
“I knew that I wanted to commit after my visit to Texas Tech,” Curl said. “When I met the coaches and spent time with them, it just felt right and I knew that’s where I wanted to be. Plus, when my Mom told me it was her favorite visit, then that made me feel even more confident about my decision.
“Spending time around my main recruiter from Tech, Coach (Karl) Scott, and watching film with Coach (David) Gibbs was a great experience. They really like my size at 6-foot-2, and believe that I have the speed to play both corner and safety in their defense.”
Scouting Report: Whereas Adrian Frye was a bit under the radar, Curl is certainly not under the radar. He’s got a ton of offers, which can be a bit rare for a guy in Oklahoma, but Curl has talent and Muskogee isn’t necessarily out of the way. Curl plays both ways for Muskogee, both receiver and safety. The coaches apparently want Curl to play safety at Texas Tech and with that size I’m completely happy with that. The nice thing about Curl playing receiver is that he checks the box in terms of the things you want to see from a good safety, which is good hands and the ability to get up and go get the ball. I really didn’t get a good sense from watching his film about his ability to float and have that type of range you want out of the safety spot. He does a nice job of supporting the run and he’s a heck of a hitter over the middle.
