Two offers in for Curle

Shelby Township's David Curle is a 6-foot-4, 275 pound offensive and defensive line prospect and has picked up early offers from Central Michigan and Western Michigan so far. Curle had a chance to visit WMU for their spring scrimmage last Saturday and met with coaches including head coach Bill Cubit, followed by a campus tour.

"It was good," Curle said. "We got to see some of Western's buildings, we got to look through the library, then we looked at the dorm rooms and the cafeteria. It was nice."

There is also a recurring theme among visitors to WMU's practices, as many recruits have mentioned the intensity and physicality of the scrimmages as a positive.

"It was good, it was physical, lots of hits, a good football practice," Curle said.

The Big Ten including Michigan State, Iowa, Northwestern, and Wisconsin have also taken interest in Curle, who has taken unofficial visits to MSU, WMU, and CMU. While Curle has no visits planned just yet, he remains in contact with all of these schools. Central Michigan offered Curle over the phone in December, while Western Michigan's Rich Nagy gave his offer via phone in February.

The schools were impressed with Curle's junior season at Shelby Township's Utica Eisenhower High School, where the Eagles made a run all the way to the state semifinals to eventual champion Cass Tech of Detroit.

Curle is in no hurry to make a decision at this stage, saying that he has no favorites just yet. Like many of WMU's recruiting targets, Curle played in a spread offense, which could help the potential transition to the Western Michigan spread attack. He also cited his pass blocking as a relative strength, and that he is simply working on becoming bigger and faster for college.

Academics are the top priority for Curle, with a quality football program and his comfort level with the coaching staff being mentioned second.

The opportunity to speak one-on-one with coach Cubit shows how interested WMU is in the big tackle, who says the Broncos are primarily interested in him on the offensive side of the ball. Curle left with a good impression of Cubit and the staff.

"He's a good guy, he just talked to me about more life than football, and he was just honest with me. I liked that," Curle said.
