In my opinion one of the standouts in Oklahoma State's group of commitments is wide receiver C.J. Curry. Once committed to Georgia, Curry switched after an unofficial visit to Stillwater. He moved from a school that was more ground oriented on offense to Flowery Branch High School's more balanced offense, where he put up good offensive numbers and was spectacular with big play after big play.

However, the major recruiting networks rankings have not reflected Curry's improvement and increased production in his senior season. It's like they've ignored him.

At the O-D All-Star Game his receivers coach on the West, NFL wide receiver Matthew Hatchette called him a beast and predicted he would be a breakout player early at Oklahoma State. Hatchette said he was the best receiver he had on the West team in practice that week.

"It was real fun and it was a great indicator of how I stand with the players my age that are coming out in this recruiting class," C.J. Curry said of his experience the week of the O-D All-Star Game. "I feel good, feel like all the hard work I put in paid off."

Curry also said it has been fun that schools have continued to try recruiting him. In recent weeks, schools like of Notre Dame, Mississippi and North Carolina, who recruited and received a commitment from Flowery Branch quarterback Kanler Coker, have tried to sway Curry.

"That is flattering," he admitted while in the car with his family on their way home to Georgia from his official visit this weekend. "This trip really reassured me about my decision to come to Oklahoma State. Everything was really pretty familiar, but I got to meet a lot of the commits in the class and my host was (freshman quarterback) J. W. Walsh. It was a good weekend."

Curry also had his two younger brothers. Darius is a standout defensive back who is expected to draw a lot of recruiting attention next season, including from Oklahoma State. The youngest brother is Justin, a freshman running back this past season at Flowery Branch.
