GA RB Ready to Break Out

Niagel Curtis

"Thank goodness for big-time combines." This is what you might hear from the mouth of players of small town high schools. Niagel Curtis, of Adairsville High School (GA), falls into that category, and he will quickly tell you how grateful he is for the exposure Scout.com has given him through its combine series. We were able to catch up with the talented 2010 prospect to see what's next.

"I'm looking forward to this upcoming football season to show my ability, what I can do on the football field," he said.

Curtis hasn't received any correspondence yet, but its merely a matter of time. He was able to compete in the UA / Scout.com Atlanta event and knows it will provide a jump start to the recruiting process. He also sees a different kind of value in it.

"The Dome (combine) has been a really good experience," he said. "It's given me the chance to compete at a high level, see some speed and see some guys do things that I need to work on."

With the recruiters on the horizon, Curtis is gearing up for the process as a whole. Does he have an idea what he is looking for in a school?

"Yes Sir, I am looking for a school that is going to give me a good education, something that goes beyond football."

There are many talented high school athletes out there with a lot to offer. What does Curtis bring to the table? What separates him from the pack?

"I'm going to give 110% all the time and in everything I do," he said. "But I also have a good attitude and a good personality."

I will make a football program and a college better by being a good and well-rounded person."

That said, does the up and coming talent have an early Top Seven?

"Appalachian State, GA Southern, Georgia, Mississippi State, Louisville, Northwestern and Florida State."

Curtis reports a 3.0 GPA and is scheduled to take the ACT and SAT.

Stay tuned as things pick up in the Curtis camp.
