Davidson's Curry recruiting brother Seth

Liberty freshman guard Seth Curry's decision to transfer -- after averaging 20.2 points a game -- has most certainly set off a feeding frenzy among the larger schools in the Southeast. Curry has made it clear that he would like to play on a higher level than the Big South Conference offers.

Older brother Stephen, currently making a decision of his own on whether to turn pro or return for his senior season, would like to help Seth with his choice.

"Davidson is one (of Seth's possible schools)," Curry said this afternoon. "I'm going to try to recruit him hard, try to finish the job I started when he was in high school two years ago. But we'll have to see where he feels comfortable and where his heart is."

If Seth picked the Wildcats, the two would not be able to play together next year should Stephen decide to return. The NCAA's transfer rule will force the younger Curry to sit out a season.

Stephen, who didn't find out his sibling was transferring until Monday, said he knew that Seth already has a pile of offers, but wasn't sure which schools are in the hunt. Most likely, a number of ACC and SEC programs, and also some Big East schools.

"That was his goal in high school," Stephen Curry said. "It's every kid's dream to go to that kind of level. And now he has plenty of opportunities to do that. I wouldn't be surprised if he did; I wouldn't be surprised if we got him here. It's pretty much up in the air right now.

"He can go pretty much where he wants to at this point."

Like there is any chance Seth Curry is going to Davidson. The media are so gullible.

Sorry, Davidson was a good team beacause of Curry, the competition in the Southern Conference isn't that much better than the Big South. I'm also sorry that Seth Curry is walking out on the commitment he gave Liberty to play college basketball there.

Seth was not even the best player on his team. Anthiony Smith was the best player. Regretfully, Seth was such a ball hog Smith was lucky to get off his shot. Smith did manage to finish on the 1st Team Big South. Smith's three point shooting was much better then Seth. But we all know the hype Stephan has received. I guess Seth feels annointed.

Dont feel too bad for Liberty. Scholarships are on a year by year basis by the school. They renew every year on the admins discrection. So they can end a scholarship at any time for any reason. He is essentially doing the same thing.

Davidson is a far better program than Liberty will ever be. Many kids wouldn't like the college life you would get at Liberty. Davidson is a great academic school, something that the Curry family cherishes. It is an easy drive for Dell and Sonya. He won't have to play in Steph's shadow, but he'll have a year to learn from him. Davidson plays great teams out of conference and has proved they can make the postseason and win every year. I'd say Davidson has as good if not a better shot than any other school to land Seth.

What a crock. I assume you are Liberty supporter. Seth is not tied to the school for 4 years any more than the school is tied to him for 4 years. Don't try to make this some type of character issue for Seth. That is completely unfair. Lots of kids transfer for lots of reasons. If it wasn't the right fit for him, it just wasn't. Also, don't underestimate the role that the "unique" religious atmosphere at the school may have had on his decision.

He didn't know it was a religous school before he went? Absurd. He bailed on his team.

why didn't he go to Davidson to begin with? They've got a better program, conference, and his big brother. I find it hard to believe they didn't offer him a scholarship out of high school. I guess the lesson learned is: Don't underestimate a Curry.

Seth certainly has a choice to where he goes to college. Seth committed no wrong doing to Liberty. However, it is a shame, he was a part of the first top 50 recuiting class at Liberty and I hear they have an even better recuiting class next season. He could have possibly done the same for Liberty as Stephen done for Davidson

Seth Curry isn't going to Davidson. The Socon is equal with the Big South.

That being said, wherever he goes the team will most likely fail, as he only cares about himself.

Seth is a decent player who thinks he is a great player. He wants his 20 shots a night regardless if he his hitting or not. For every night he had a good game in the Big South, another night he stunk it up. Not a good combination for anyone who gets him.
