Three-star QB still likes Miners

Strong-armed quarterback Tim Curry out of Elysian Fields (Texas) has been putting together a strong senior campaign for his undefeated squad. With the kind of numbers he is putting up along with the kind of success that his team has been having, Curry is proving his No. 26 quarterback in the country.

"We're ranked No. 4 in the state," Curry said. "In some polls we're ranked No. 1. We're 7-0 and we've outscored our opponents 369-31."

Personally, Curry has compiled 864 passing yards with 13 touchdowns. He has also added over 300 rushing yards and 9 rushing touchdowns, all of this without playing a full four quarters in a game all season.

The senior is committed to play for Texas El Paso in the fall but he has still had several schools expressing an interest in his services. While he is open to listening to other programs, Curry had a positive experience on a recent trip to UTEP.

"I still have the same offers from Louisiana Monroe and Louisiana Tech," he said. "I've already been on my official visit to El Paso. I took that Sept. 1. It was kind of like a little special deal for me because they usually don't give the trips until late in the year. It was really nice especially having one-on-one time with all the coaches and everybody out there."

Despite his commitment, Curry still plans on taking more official visits.

"I plan on taking mine with ULM later in the season and then Louisiana Tech later than that," he said.

Two more schools that haven't yet offered the 6-4 190-pounder but are still showing interest are Kansas and Southern Miss.

"Southern Miss is looking at a player at my position but they said that he's pretty much hooked on East Carolina and if he does commit to East Carolina I'll probably get an offer from them," he said. "I have a bunch of family from Gulfport and that's probably an hour away. That's one thing that's real positive. I've had some family that's gone to Southern Miss so it's kind of been in my family. Plus they're kind of a bigger school so that's kind of a big thing."

Kansas is the fifth team in the equation for Curry.

"I've been hearing a lot from them lately," he said. "The University of Kansas has a real shot right now."

Though he hopes to take all of his visits, UTEP remains his clear favorite.

"Right now it's probably ULM and UTEP," he said. "But UTEP is pretty far ahead right now."
