FOX Sports NEXT caught up with Cerritos (Calif.) Gahr cornerback Dajon Curtis after the 1925 All-Stars 7on7 tryout to find out his plans for spring and the latest in his recruitment.

On Sunday afternoon, Cerritos (Calif.) Gahr cornerback Dajon Curtis checked-in at 5’11 and 172-pounds, and showed off his moves on defense in efforts to earn himself a spot on the 1925 All-Stars’ roster.

“I think I had a pretty solid day,” said Curtis. “I gave up one solid pass, which I am not too happy about, but overall everything was great. I think I had a solid day in coverage.”

A confident Curtis, who has been a two-year starter for Gahr, described what makes him a threat on defense.

“I am physical and I like to play press,” explained Curtis. “I am working on my off-coverage and I am getting a lot better reading the quarterback, three-step drops, five-step, seven-steps, and also playing the ball in the air. My goal is to get five picks this season, so I am really working on that during the off-season.”

As far as his recruitment goes, Curtis will be heading south this weekend for an unofficial visit.

“I am going to San Diego State on Sunday for a visit, which is also their spring game, so that’s pretty exciting,” said Curtis. “I am going to get there a little early to talk with the coaches and see what’s going on.”

The Aztec’s have yet to offer Curtis, but he has already developed a close relationship with defensive backs coach Tony White who has been keeping in close contact with him.

“Coach White is a cool guy,” explained Curtis. “ I don’t have a solid offer from them, but I might get one at the Spring Game and they are also planning to come down and see me play this spring.”

Tennessee, Idaho, Oregon State, and Oregon are the other schools that have been recruiting Curtis, thus far.

“Oregon is the most recent school to get in contact with me,” commented Curtis.

Out of the list of programs showing him interest, Curtis says at this point there is two schools that standout in his mind.

“I would say both San Diego State and Tennessee, because they have been recruiting me the hardest,” said Curtis. “San Diego State has been recruiting me since the start of my junior season, and Tennessee came into the picture shortly after. It’s always good when they come to you and you don’t have to go after them.”

Curtis discussed what he has planned for the next couple months, “I might go to the Vols’ Junior Day in April and Stanford’s camp this summer. I haven’t been communicating with Stanford too much, but I have received a couple emails from them.”
