Darius Curry commits to Oklahoma State


Four-star cornerback Darius Curry (Flowery Branch, Ga./Flowery Branch) has double digit offers, including Auburn, Georgia Tech, South Carolina and Tennessee, but on Monday he announced he would be playing for Mike Gundy at the next level.

"I am committed to Oklahoma State," Curry said. "It feels great to be a Cowboy."

The 6-foot, 185-pound defensive back, who made 47 tackles, two pass break-ups and one fumble recovery as a junior, said the program has been on his mind for some time now.

"I have liked them for the longest," Curry said. "They have been my school for a while and I feel they have the best coaching staff in America. I have been up there a couple times and it does not get any better than that. Coach [Jason] Jones is a great cornerback coach and he says I have a chance to play early."

Curry's older brother, three-star wide receiver C.J. Curry, signed with Oklahoma State during the 2012 recruiting cycle. Now the two will have a chance to play together in Stillwater, Okla.

"C.J. and I have been playing together for the longest time," Curry said. "He came home for 4th of July for a few days, and we competed a little in the yard. I shut him down a little."

Curry becomes commitment No. 14 for Oklahoma State in the 2013 class, and the fourth four-star prospect to pledge to the Cowboys so far.

"We have a really good class, so I am just ready to start building a relationship with these guys," Curry said.
