When Buford (Ga) safety David Curry announced earlier this week that he would be taking an official visit to Georgia Tech, many fans grew nervous, and for good reason. The Jackets had been hot on Curry' s trail for some time now, and the defending Coastal Division champs made the talented defender an offer that he could not refuse.
On Sunday morning, Curry tweeted that "big news was coming," and shortly after, the peach state native announced his decision to decommit from UVa, and pledge to Georgia Tech.
I'm very thankful for all the love that the University of Virginia has given me, but I have decided to decommit and attend Georgia Tech. #GT— DJC2⃣2⃣ (@D_Curry_22) January 18, 2015
The news is not really a surprise, but it sure does sting (no pun intended). Curry was an incredibly savvy defensive back, and one of the best tacklers in the incoming class. Give credit to the coaching staff for getting on Curry when he wasn't that highly rated. Curry committed to UVa last summer when the 6-1, 190 pounder was rated just two stars. Curry had an excellent senior year at Buford, which drew the attention of many other suitors.
Expect Virginia to turn up the heat on Pennsylvania safety John Petrishen, who will visit Charlottesville latter this month.
The bulk of the 2015 commits that are still on board will be on grounds for their official visits next weekend.
