The Cornhuskers offered Monday, which kind of caught Curry off guard.
"I was very surprised," he said. "I never knew that's a school that would be interested in me. They're kind of far away. I never really thought they would come. When they showed up at the school last week, I was like, 'Wow, all the way from Nebraska.' [Offensive coordinator Tim Beck] told me they don't even normally recruit my area. So the interest level must be pretty high. I felt pretty honored."
What does the 6-foot-2, 224-pound Curry like about Nebraska?
"I'd put them in my top five because of the winning tradition and because Bo Pelini is the head coach," Curry said. "It seems like I could be used in that offense."
Thus far, Curry has 16 total offers, including 14 from FBS programs. This spring, he visited Georgia, LSU and Stanford. More trips are on the horizon.
"Next week, I'm heading to Louisville, Purdue and Vanderbilt," Curry said. "I'll probably stop by Western Kentucky and Middle Tennessee, too."
He also plans to check out Nebraska sometime in the future.
"I probably won't be able to take an unofficial, so it would be an official," Curry said.
