Former Nebraska defensive lineman Aaron Curry said Monday that he's transferring to TCU, according to World-Herald reporter Rich Kaipust.
His father told the paper his son signed scholarship papers on Monday with the Horned Frogs. He is expected to begin practicing with the team either Tuesday or Wednesday, according to Kaipust. In choosing a college, Curry had initially been looking at Nebraska, TCU and Iowa.
The 6-foot-1 280-pounder, who will have to redshirt this season, transferred to TCU for personal reasons and also for reasons tied to the differences between the Huskers and Horned Frogs; according to the report, citing information from his father, Curry wanted to move closer to home and likes the defensive style employed by TCU and how it uses tackles.
In two seasons with Nebraska, Curry played 17 games and started eight, recording 26 total tackles and two sacks as a sophomore.
