Devyn curtis

LB Devyn Curtis (6-2 220) of Brentwood, TN made an unofficial visit to USC last season for a game, and he was back on campus in late June with his seven-on-seven team during which time he got a closer look at the facilities and the Gamecock coaches got a closer look at him. Curtis wants to make his decision soon and USC has been in his top six. The Gamecocks apparently will be a factor with him to the end.

“I got to see the facilities and talk to the coaches,” Curtis said.  “I really liked it.  I really liked the facilities.  I’m getting a message that they like me.  When I was there, they were letting me know that they really liked me, and I saw the coaches watching. I think there was at least one coach at every seven-on-seven game I was playing in. I really like Columbia and I like the facilities, and I like the coaches as well.”

Curtis also has taken unofficial visits to Vanderbilt, Purdue, Arkansas, Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech and Kentucky. He will take his official visits during the season and hopes to set one with USC. The other schools are on his short list are Kentucky, Mississippi State, Nebraska, Vanderbilt and Virginia. He will sign in December but will not graduate early.

Last season Curtis totaled 120 tackles with 15.5 sacks.
