Curtis Racks Them Up

De'Anthony Curtis

Camden Fairview is completely loaded next year. They will have three of the state of Arkansas's top players in De'Anthony Curtis, Jim Youngblood and Lavunce Askew. Each player could make a case for being the overall top ranked prospect in the state. Curtis has begun to compile a very high profile offer list.

De'Anthony Curtis, a 5-foot-9, 200-pound running back from Camden Fairview High in Ark., has racked up a very impressive offer list.

Although he has been enjoying all of the attention, he is glad that it is not nearly as busy as it was at the beginning of the year.

"It has been going good, but it has actually slowed down a little lately," Curtis began. "It is actually a relief. At one point in time everything was happening so fast, but now that it has slowed downs some I have some time to actually breathe."

Curtis has now put together one of the most impressive offer lists in the state of Arkansas.

"I now have offers from Arkansas, Tennessee, Ole Miss, Oklahoma State, Mississippi State and Texas Tech," Curtis informed. "Everyone is looking at me as a running back, but Tennessee is looking at me as an athlete."

Curtis was recently in Fayetteville for the Razorback Junior Day, and he was impressed by what he saw during the time he spent on campus.

"That visit was a lot of fun," Curtis explained. "I got to watch the basketball game. I also got to meet all of the other recruits."

"They took us on a tour of the whole school basically, and I enjoyed seeing the academic side of things. That was impressive. The dorm rooms and the weight room were cool. It was a real nice visit."

Curtis' teammate Jim Youngblood recently made a verbal commitment to the Razorbacks following the Junior Day visit, and Curtis would not be sad to continue playing with the talented quarterback on the next level.

"They (Arkansas) are definitely high on my list," Curtis said. "Jim and I have been friends for a long time. I always say that we are brothers from another mother. We would definitely like to keep the tradition of playing together."

"I am still looking at a few schools and weighing all of my options. I would like to have a decision before the start of season, so that I can concentrate on my senior year."

As a junior, Curtis rushed for 568 yards and 11 touchdowns and racked up 651 receiving yards and six touchdowns to earn All-State, All-Conference, and Class 5A SW Back Of The Year honors.

Curtis will be participating in the Scout.com Combine in Dallas on March 25th.
