Aaron Curry is not coming to OU from NebraskaPosted: August 18, 2014
NORMAN — Turns out, Nebraska defensive tackle Aaron Curry, will not be transferring to Oklahoma.
After reports surfaced Monday morning listing OU as Curry’s, likely desitnation, SoonersIllustrated.com is now reporting Curry will transfer somewhere closer to his family’s home than Nebraska. Curry’s father told SoonersIllustrated the Sooners did not have a scholarship available and that his son would not be walking on in Norman.
Curry started eight games for the Cornhuskers last season.
He was a three-star recruit out of Fossil Ridge High in Keller, Texas, two years ago, and chose the Cornhuskers over offers from Baylor, Kansas State, Missouri, TCU and Texas A&M, among others. He didn’t have an Oklahoma offer coming out of high school.
Curry’s father, Aaron Curry Sr., played basketball at Oklahoma.
To those asking, I assume Aaron Curry will have to sit out. He hasn't redshirted yet, though, so he'd be a junior in 2015. #Sooners

His dad played hoop for OU.
A 6-foot-1, 280-pound junior, Curry started eight games last year and finished with 26 tackles. In spring and fall camp, however, he was running with the No. 2 and sometimes No. 3 defense, as sophomore tackles Maliek Collins and Vincent Valentine were clear starters. Aaron Curry’s father, Aaron Curry, Sr. played college basketball at OU.
Because Curry did not redshirt in his true freshman year, he would have two years to play at any FBS school to which he transferred, if Curry departs.
