Junior quarterback Tim Curry didn't waste anytime on his recruiting process and has already made a soft verbal commitment to start off his process.
The 6-foot-4, 200-pound dual-threat signal caller from Elysian Fields, Texas received his first scholarship offer from UTEP some time ago and has give the Miners a commitment. However, the talented 2008 prospect is still looking at a number of different options with a long road ahead.
"I committed to UTEP on Wednesday after talking with coach Mike Price and I think they're real excited," Curry said. "It's always good to have a commitment under your belt in case something happens, but they're a great Division I school. They told me that with their offense being the way it is, I'd be a good fit."
Curry says that he's also receiving a ton of interest from schools like Iowa State, Duke, Illinois, Purdue, Texas A&M, Baylor, Southern Mississippi, and several others.
"I'm committed, but I'm still going to look around since it's so early," Curry said. "I'm really interested in Baylor and now that G.J. Kinne is going to Texas, I'm going to see what they're about."
Regardless of where he's at now with recruiting, he says that early relationship he had with coach Ikaika Malloe made his commitment even easier to make.
"Coach Malloe is a good guy and he's already helped me out a bunch from talking to him," Curry said. "He's looking forward to my family and I coming up there next September for an official visit to check things out and just hang out with the coaching staff."
Curry was an all-district punter and quarterback as a junior. He also received multiple East Texas honors along with several all-county honors. Curry has been nominated for several all-state teams as well.
