     Federal Way (Wash.) DB Keenan Curran has emerged this offseason as one of the most sought-after prospects in the state, regardless of position.

     As Washington’s #3 ranked defensive back in the 2014 class, the 6-foot-2, 185-pound Curran possesses the ability to play both the safety and cornerback position.

     Curran currently holds offers from Montana, Eastern Washington, Yale, Wyoming, Portland State, Army, Air Force, San Jose State and Idaho. He has spent this offseason visiting several of the schools recruiting him, and even participating in camps at a few of them.

     We recently caught up with Keenan to recap his busy summer and hear how his visits went.

BOISE STATE: “I had an awesome time and the competition was high out there at Boise State’s cam,” Curran tells NEI. “I enjoyed the beautiful blue field and the wonderful stadium. The coaches and facilities are world class. It would be an honor to play there with my boy Drew Sample.”

UTAH STATE: “The Facilities were AMAZING, brand new weight room, and the locker room is world-class, the city as a whole was so wonderful and it truly is a great place to play, you can tell they love their Aggies,” Curran said. “The camp was fun, particularly the passing tournament at night, The energy level was always high and the coaches are great guys and push you to your maximum potential.”

MONTANA: “I could feel the tradition in the program from the first step on campus. All of the coaches are great guys and the stadium is so awesome,” Curran tells us. “The players are all cool and down to earth. I got to tour their facilities and watch a player-run practice. They also took me around the school and the campus is so beautiful.”

EASTERN WASHINGTON: “I feel like the EWU Coaches and I have a great relationship. I felt the most at home at EWU,” Curran says. “I didn’t participate in the camp but I watched and got a tour of all the facilities and got to sit down with Coach Baldwin for a one on one conversation as well. Eastern Washington has a good vibe and would be a fantastic place to play, I think I most enjoyed the way the coaches treat their players and just how down to earth they are.”

ARIZONA STATE: “One word: beautiful. The stadium, the facilities, the weight room, everything – I fell in love with the school while I was out there” Curran says. “I participated in a camp inside their bubble dome and I was impressed with my performance. The coaching staff are all genuine guys and me and coach Joe Lorig are pretty close. The camp was filled with some of the top talent in the nation and I loved the energy that the coaches kept during 1 on 1’s. ASU would be a fantastic place to play.”

In addition to those visits Curran also noted that he would be unofficially visiting Washington State and Idaho in the near future. We will be sure to keep you updated on Keenan throughout the season.
