JUCO big man Sydney Curry updates his recruitment

November 5, 2020

On a team with a future NBA draft pick upcoming in Jay Scrubb, Sydney Curry was never hidden on the floor with John A Logan. His size instantly screams potential at 6-foot-8 and nearly 250-pounds. This summer, he has been doing a lot more conditioning and working on his game. 

Last season, he averaged 13.5 points and eight rebounds. He also blocked more than 22 shots last season, a number I expect to watch improve as the season moves forward.

His recruitment has also reached new heights with even more high-majors showing him interest with the last two schools entering the mix with offers being Kansas and Texas A&M. Yesterday, he virtually met with Buzz Williams and A&M’s staff. They have been in full pursuit mode on Curry and have extended it into a new gear over the last few days.

Curry took the time before his workout to discuss his recruitment and more with
