For junior cornerback Darius Curry of Flowery Branch (Ga.), each of his nine offers means something. But admittedly, Curry's most recent one was special.
"Auburn offered [Wednesday]," Curry said. "I was real excited about it. I've liked Auburn for awhile now. For them to offer was a pretty exciting moment."
According to Curry, he will visit the Tigers this weekend.

"I was there two years ago when they played Georgia," Curry said. "It was when Cam [Newton] was there. It was a great experience."
Thus far, Curry has visited two other programs in 2012.
"Two weeks ago, I went to Georgia Tech for junior day," Curry said. "This past weekend, I went to Alabama."
Curry said he enjoyed both trips. The Yellow Jackets already have offered him.
"I'd never been there before," Curry said. "I didn't know what to expect. I went in and saw the facilities. It's a really nice place. I talked to the coaches - Coach Paul [Johnson] and Coach [Charles] Kelly, the DB coach -- they're really good coaches. They know their stuff."
Alabama has yet to offer, but the 6-feet-1, 182-pound Curry is optimistic the Tide will come around.
"That was a great trip also," Curry said. "I got to talk to Coach Kirby Smart and Coach Nick Saban for a little bit. [Saban] came to our table while we were eating lunch. He talked to me, and asked me to stand up. He said he liked my size. He just wants to see me in the spring and see how I do at camp. Maybe I could get an offer from them."
After visiting Auburn, Curry said he hopes to check out Arkansas the following weekend.
Right now, he has no leader, nor has he compiled a list of his top schools.
"I'll probably do that during the summer," Curry said.
