Initial reports that former Nebraska defensive tackle Aaron Curry is transferring to Oklahoma, according to various reports, are false according to Curry's father, Aaron Curry Sr.
While Curry Sr. did confirm his son was transferring, he said Oklahoma did not have a scholarship for his son and that the family was looking at other options.

Aaron Curry Sr. says family looking at 5-6 schools closer to home than Nebraska. "Wants to be close to home on scholarship."— Bob Przybylo (@BPrzybylo) August 18, 2014
As a sophomore, Curry started eight games in 2013 and appeared in 13. However, he hasn’t been able to crack the first team during fall camp and has primarily been working with the second string while sophomores Maliek Collins and Vincent Valentine have become the starters.
Curry had 26 tackles, including three for loss and two sacks last season.
Nebraska doesn’t seem to be hurting for depth in the interior part of the defensive line. According to Husker Extra, junior Kevin Williams, who has returned from injury, has made a strong impression, as has sophomore Kevin Maurice.
Due to NCAA transfer rules, Curry will have to sit out a season if he transfers to an FBS program. He has a redshirt season available and will still have two years of eligibility remaining starting in 2015.
