Utah State football has received a commitment from East High slotback Preston Curtis, a fleet-footed recruit who helped bring the Leopards to the 4A championship game this past fall.
East coach Brandon Matich confirmed that Curtis, a senior, committed to Utah State on Friday and was expected to serve an LDS Mission before playing for the Aggies.
The 5-foot-11, 185-pounder was a two-way difference-maker for East, gaining more than 1,000 yards rushing, nearly 500 yards receiving and 20 total touchdowns in the triple option offense. His ability to stretch the field was key to open up inside lanes for fellow rushers Ula Tolutau and Isaac Valles.
He was also a stalwart defensive back, racking up four picks and 56 tackles for the Leopards, who fell just short of a perfect season falling to Timpview in a memorable title game.
Curtis' name may pique Aggie fans' ears - he is the younger brother of USU quarterback and former East star Tanner Curtis, who has been serving on an LDS Mission each of the last two seasons.
As the highlight tape shows above, Curtis brings a dynamic playmaking ability to the field that the Aggies hope to capture.
Stay tuned as more information becomes available about his commitment.
