Committed to UNC Greensboro out of Southeastern CC (IA). 

9.18.15 - Verbally committed to Southeastern Community College.
7.8.15 - 5-foot-10, 175-pound solidly built left-handed hitting third-baseman and right-handed pitcher. At the plate, hits from an open, tall setup. Starts with a slight leg lift and long stride. Has a gap-to-gap approach, bat stays flat through the zone. Linear backside and shows balance throughout the swing; 81 mph exit velocity off the tee and ran a 4.62 home-to-first. Defensively, was clocked at 85 mph across the infield, showing plenty of arm strength to play the left side of the infield. In game play, he displayed fluid, quick feet with a clean exchange. On the mound, Curry operates from an over-the-top slot with a long, quick, athletic arm. Fastball ranged between 83-86 mph; when down in the zone, fastball had some run and sink. Change-up was his second best offering on this day, sitting 74-75 mph. Change-up is thrown with fastball arm speed; flashes run and sink; quality secondary pitch with swing and miss potential. Threw primarily fastballs and change-ups in his outing. Did throw a couple of breaking balls in his warmup that had sharp 11/5 shape, tight spin and feel.
6.18.15 - 5-foot-10, 170-pound, average build, two-way player, left-handed hitter. Hits from a slightly-open stance, loads hands back, short stride, good balance. Average bat speed, level bat path, fluid rhythm, 82 mph exit velocity. Defensively showed average hands, ability to play through the ball, long arm action, high ¾ slot, 83 mph from across the infield. Ran a 7.65 60-time. On the mound displayed a tall-and-fall delivery, long arm action, high ¾ slot, smooth rhythm, lands on line. Fastball showed arm-side-run, 84-85 mph. Curveball had 11/5 shape, 70-71 mph. Changeup had good arm speed, some fade, 73-75 mph. Slider sat 79-80 mph.

5.27.15 - 5-foot-10, 170-pound left-handed hitting RHP/3B, impressed in five inning outing. Shorter frame, strong lower half. Fastball sat 85-87 mph touching 88 mph several times in first two innings. Still pitching 83-85 mph touching 86 in the fifth. Works from a long, quick, high ¾ arm slot, pendulum swing arm action, stays inside the baseball with release point, creating natural sink due to arm action. Repeats delivery, turns/tucks lower half over the rubber, short leg lift, lands in line with home plate, square at foot strike. Fastball has heavy sinking action, occasional two-seam run when he gets on the side of it, tough to square up when down in the zone. Also flashed 73 mph curveball, 11/5 shape, showed the ability to throw it for strikes, but primarily pounded the fastball in this outing. Also showed an 80 mph changeup, used sparingly. Threw a 75-78 mph slider last summer, so has a fourth pitch in his back pocket, interesting prospect to follow as his velocity has increased from 80-83 mph last June. Also impressed at the plate with three hits (two doubles). Open stance, utilizes legs well, short leg kick stride, compact stroke, hits ball to all fields. First double to right-center, second to dead center on a ball misplayed by center fielder, last single went inside out on a fastball and lined a ball to left field for his third RBI.6/12/14 - 5-foot-10, 170-pound left-handed hitting 3B/RHP impressed with legitimate two-way ability.  On the mound sat 80-81 mph touching 83 from long high-3/4 arm action with some effort.  Threw 68-70 mph curveball and 75-78 mph slider.  71-74 mph changeup was thrown with fastball arm speed with arm side run.  Offensively hits from a balanced setup with minimal stride and a smooth load with explosive bat speed producing line drives from gap-to-gap with 80 mph exit velocity.  Also showed solid defensive actions at third base with above average arm strength.
