First there was Edmund Ray. Now it’s Aaron Curry. This is not a good trend for Missouri football today.
Of course, every year there are kids who change their mind at the last second or who were never fully committed in the first place who don’t come through in the end. However, Missouri has lost two guys along the defensive line at this point and that has to be a bit disheartening for Gary Pinkel and his staff.
Aaron Curry is the latest to commit elsewhere and the talented defensive lineman will be taking his skills to Nebraska to play in the Big Ten rather than joining the SEC. Ray already switched his commit from Missouri to Texas A&M so this makes two up-front guys who are gone.
As Dave Matter notes, “Curry, a defensive lineman from Keller, Texas, signed with Nebraska after also considering Missouri and Iowa. Decisions by Ray and Curry could leave the Tigers’ class short on defensive linemen, particularly players able to play the interior positions.”
