Dajon Curtis, the junior cornerback has been a two-year starter at Cerritos (Calif.) Gahr. Curtis discussed why he has been such a valuable asset for his team.
“My strength is my press-coverage. My size is a little different than most corners, but I can also lock it up on one-side of the field and hold it on my own. This season I would like to get some more interceptions, take one to the house and increase my tackles percentage,” said Curtis.
At the start of his junior season, Curtis has already been receiving attention from several west coast programs.
“I have been getting letters from Oregon State and have also been in contact with coaches at San Diego State. I am headed to see San Diego State’s game this weekend, and to meet their DB coach,” said Curtis. “ I want to checkout the overall game atmosphere and see what everything is like on game day. Also to find out what the players are about, meet the coaches and see where I would fit in.”
Curtis discussed the schools that he is still hoping to hear from, and what he knows he needs to do this year in order to lock up his first offer.
“I am hoping to hear from Oregon. I really like Oregon and LSU. I am a big fan of LSU. I would also like to hear from, North Carolina, Arizona, Arizona State and pretty much everywhere. I am leaving my options open; I don’t want to commit myself to one school too early,” said Curtis.
“This year, I have to prove that I can play, and that I can hold it on my own, on one-side of the field. I need to show my ability to do man-on-man coverage, and that I am not just a cover-two-guy, or that I am just good at one thing. I need to show that I am a good overall player on the field.”
