Morgantown, West Virginia – Earlier today, former Ole Miss center Carlos Curry announced on social media that he has received a scholarship offer from West Virginia University.
Curry, a 6’11 240 pound player originally from Albany, appeared in 17 games off the bench, averaging 0.7 points and 0.7 rebounds in 4.6 minutes per game as a redshirt freshman for Ole Miss. He transferred to Northwest Mississippi Community College in the offseason and will play there in the upcoming season.
Curry holds offers from Akron, East Tennessee State, Old Dominion, Southern Utah and most recently from West Virginia. In his announcement on social media, Curry said, “I want to thank the legendary coach Bob Huggins and staff for a scholarship offer to West Virginia University.”

Curry, who was a 3 star recruit out of high school, appears to be a bit of a project, but no one will be able to get more out of him than Bob Huggins and his coaching staff. Although West Virginia is currently loaded with interior talent, Oscar Tshiebwe will likely enter his name in the NBA Draft following this season, leaving an open spot for someone like Curry.
