Kamren Curl is a three-star defensive back from Muskogee, Oklahoma. He was originally committed to play for Texas Tech before decommitting on October 26. At the time, Curl tweeted that he felt “like there is a better place out there for me.”
From there, it was a bit of a whirlwind for Curl and Nebraska. The Huskers offered the 6-2, 180-pound defensive back on November 7. By November 12, he was in Memorial Stadium for an official visit. It was Curl’s first official visit trip as a recruit and he was anxious to see what Nebraska had to offer.
Curl still has Ole Miss, TCU and Washington State on his list (with TCU seemingly in the lead for his commitment), but Nebraska did impress the Muskogee (OK) High recruit. He spoke with Hail Varsity exclusively after the game about his experience with the Huskers and when he plans to make his final decision.
What was your visit to Nebraska like? What was the most impressive part?
KC: It was great. The best part was watching the fan base and how they really love the team.
Nebraska just recently offered you. What did it mean to get that offer?
KC: It meant a lot. I’ve been talking to some of the coaches since my recruitment started so it felt great to finally get an offer [from Nebraska].
Did seeing Memorial Stadium get you excited to play college football? What was your general takeaway watching the game?
KC: Yes it did. [My general takeaway was] that they have a great football team, great coaches and a great fan base backing them up.
Did any of the coaches say anything to you last night?
KC: They said that I would fit great in their system.
Do you feel the same? Which DB impressed you most tonight?
KC: Yeah, I do. And Chris Jones played great.
What’s something about you that Nebraska fans should know?
KC: I’m a great player that they would enjoy cheering for.
Any hint on when you expect to make a decision?
KC: Most likely on signing day.
