DT Curry set to transfer
Junior defensive tackle Aaron Curry is set to leave the Nebraska football program.
SoonerScoop.com of the Rivals.com network confirmed the news with a source close to Curry late Sunday evening.
Curry's high school coach at Keller (Texas) Fossil Ridge has been working with Oklahoma in the meantime on his transfer. He's expected to get his official release from Nebraska as early as Monday. However, SoonerScoop.com later reported Monday that OU no longer had a scholarship for Curry and will be looking elsewhere.
The 6-foot-1, 280 pound Curry started 8 games in 2013 and played in all 13 contests finishing with 26 total tackles, three tackles for loss and two quarterback sacks.
However, he has recently been passed up on the depth chart by both sophomores Vincent Valentine and Maliek Collins, who have become the Huskers clear cut top defensive tackles and future NFL prospects.
Junior Kevin Williams has also come back strong from a knee injury after having starting experience in 2012, while sophomore Kevin Maurice has also emerged in camp.
SoonerScoop.com reported that Curry wants to move closer to home and going to OU made sense because his father played basketball there.
Because Curry played as a true freshman in 2012, he can use his redshirt year in 2014 and still have two years of eligibility remaining in 2015 and 2016.
