Cody Kurz visited New Mexico State two weekends ago and the three-star inside linebacker from Ventura (Calif.) St. Bonaventure said he's seriously considering a commitment there.
Kurz, a 6-foot-3, 238-pound prospect, hit it off with the coaching staff and enjoyed his time at New Mexico State with former St. Bonaventure teammate, Dylan Davis. Although he hasn't made any pledges yet, New Mexico State could steal away one of Southern California's top inside linebackers.
"I know guys that go there, like Dylan Davis, and we had a lot of fun," Kurz said. "I really like it up there. I like the coaches, I like the d-line coach a lot and I really liked it out there a lot.
"I would go there. I can see myself there being with Dylan and bringing that program up. I haven't committed yet."
The three-star prospect said Nevada recently sent a couple coaches to his school and that Wyoming and Hawaii have recently shown a lot of interest as well. Notre Dame has also been involved but Kurz admitted that he still has some academic issues so that might delay his decision-making process.
"I'm probably going to wait until the end," Kurz said.
There is also a chance Kurz, a pitcher for the St. Bonaventure baseball team, could get drafted after this season by a major league team so that is also a consideration playing into his recruitment.
For now, Kurz said he's focused on straightening out his academics and possibly making a football commitment and then figuring out his future from there. The three-star prospect plans to take his time with all decisions.
"I want to be sure," Kurz said.
