2014 Outlook
Defensive tackle Aaron Curry emerged as a starter at defensive tackle at the mid-point of the 2013 season and is part of an impressive group of young talent returning on the front four this season. Curry will battle for playing time at defensive tackle along with sophomores Maliek Collins, Kevin Maurice and Vincent Valentine, and fellow junior Kevin Williams.

The 6-1, 280-pounder has the versatility and athleticism to move around on the defensive line. He has shown the ability to be effective at the point of attack against the run, while also being an effective pass rusher.

2013 (Sophomore)
Curry played in every game and started all eight Big Ten games. Curry finished the year with 24 tackles, three tackles for loss and a pair of sacks, and had at least four tackles in three games.

Curry had a season-high five tackles against Michigan State and added four tackles against Minnesota and Penn State. Curry notched his first career sack with an 11-yarder against South Dakota State. He added his second sack of the year with a five-yarder on the first play of the game at Purdue. He also had a tackle for loss at Minnesota, and closed the year with two tackles in the Gator Bowl. Curry added three quarterback hurries.

2012 (Freshman)
Curry was one of five true freshmen to see action for Nebraska last season, playing in the first four games, before he was slowed by injuries the remainder of the year. Curry totaled three assisted tackles on the year, including one stop against Southern Miss and two tackles against Idaho State.
Before Nebraska (Fossil Ridge HS)
Curry joins the NU program as part of a strong group of defensive linemen in the class. The 6-1, 280-pound Curry is one of four players expected to begin their careers on the defensive front, including two on the interior. Curry is one of two Texans in the Huskers’ class, giving NU at least one signee from Texas for the 12th straight year. As a senior, Curry had 59 tackles, three sacks and a forced fumble for Fossil Ridge High. His play helped Coach Tony Baccarini’s team to a 6-5 record and a trip to the state playoffs. Curry was an all-district performer at the 5A level as a senior. As a junior, Curry had 68 total tackles, including four sacks. Curry was ranked among the top 50 defensive tackles in the country by Scout.com and Rivals.com. In addition to Nebraska, Curry also visited Iowa, Missouri and Boise State and had dozens of other scholarship offers.
