Phenix City (Ala.) Central junior tight end Jonathan Curry had no idea what to expect before visiting Stanford this past weekend.
After arriving on campus Friday, he was quickly impressed.
"Once I lied down at the end of the night and thought about everything we had seen that day, that's when I realized I could see myself there," Curry said. "I was looking forward to the next day to find out a little more about the campus."

On Tuesday, the 6-foot-3, 235-pounder told Rivals.com where the Cardinal now stood with him.
"I would say they're probably the leader right now," Curry said.
Curry also has offers from Arkansas State, Louisville and Western Kentucky. Thus far, he has visited Georgia Tech, LSU and Tennessee. He plans to check out Georgia on April 15.
Curry, who carries a 3.9 GPA, was accompanied on his trip to Stanford by his parents.
"The first day, they just showed us around campus," Curry said. "They showed us all the history and tradition Stanford had to offer. Then they took me to a music class to show how Stanford operates in a classroom environment."
Curry also spent lots of time with the coaching staff.
"There were 10 players there for junior day," Curry said. "They wanted it to be a personal visit and get to know the players as best as they could. We met all the coaches. I met the head coach. I met the position coach. I met the offensive coordinator. I met everyone. They say they're looking to use me at tight end, to stretch the field and make catches with my athleticism. They're also stressing I have to be a good blocker."
