Former Nebraska defensive tackle Aaron Curryalways wanted to play in the Big 12” Conference. Obviously, he initially missed his opportunity by a couple of years once the Cornhuskers joined the Big Ten Conference in 2011. But he won’t make the same mistake twice.

Curry has decided to transfer to TCU, according the‘s Joe Schad.

Curry started eight games in 2013, but he chose to transfer after he slid down the Cornhuskers’ depth chart during spring practice.

The opportunity to play for the Horned Frog was too good to pass up for the Keller, Texas native.

Curry did have the option to play in the Big 12 when he was recruited. The defensive lineman held offers from the Kansas Jayhawks and Kansas State Wildcats. Obviously, those weren’t great fits for Curry at the time. TCU, meanwhile, will give him an opportunity to potentially start after he sits out the 2014 campaign due to NCAA transfer rules.

“He didn’t like that part at all, but that’s the rules,” Aaron Curry Sr. told the “He’ll just get stronger, just get quicker and just learn the defense.”

Senior Chucky Hunter will graduate from TCU after this season, and Curry could slide right into head coach Gary Patterson‘s starting defensive front.
