“He got along with the players and felt comfortable with the coaching staff when he was up there,” Aaron’s dad, Aaron Curry Sr. said. “It was a combination of everything. It’s a good football school and it’s a defensive school.”

Curry told NU defensive tackle coach Rick Kaczenski of his decision.

"Aaron was getting ready to go to Iowa,” Curry Sr. said. “Then all of a sudden, Coach K went to Nebraska. (When Kaczenski arrived in Lincoln), they asked Coach Kaczenski who he was recruiting at Iowa, and the first name that came up was Aaron’s.”

He had 20 offers and has shown interest in Iowa and Nebraska, among others. Curry also took visits to TCU and UCLA.

After a year in the Big Ten, Nebraska went looking for more depth at defensive tackle. It found that in Curry.
