ONTARIO, Calif. -- The Ontario (Calif.) Colony Titans have produced several FBS athletes over the past two seasons and it looks like the trend will continue in the future. After Bryan Harper in 2012 and the duo of Samajie Grant and Dontel James in 2013, it will likely be wide receiver Kyle Curry that earns attention in the 2014 recruiting class.
Curry caught 17 passes for 367 yards and two touchdowns as a sophomore and will likely be called upon to expand his role as a junior.
The 6-foot-1, 175-pound Curry began this year by scoring a touchdown in the opening game, and is already hearing from Colorado, UCLA and Wisconsin.
“It’s been a great feeling to see how big schools are coming and they want to see how I play and how I keep my grades up,” Curry said.
Curry said it has been a great benefit to watch Harper, Grant and James go through the recruiting process, as well as elevate their games to the FBS level. Curry has his sights set on following that path, and a couple of Pac-12 schools are standing out at this early stage.
Utah is a school Curry is very interested in. He said his father played basketball for the Utes before a torn ACL stopped his career.
“I grew up watching Utah a lot with my parents,” Curry said. “They were talking about how that’s a good college.”
Curry said his parents have also made sure that USC is a school that appears on his radar, as a local option.
