Four-star running back Chris Curry out of Florida made it official after signing his letter of intent with the Tigers

The top-10 running back according to 247Sports, Chris Curry will be expected to contribute following the departure of Darrell Williams and the likely early departure of Derrius Guice. Even at 200 pounds, Curry quickly draws comparison to Marshawn Lynch, who is quite heavier, with his running style. Curry may have to add some weight if he wants to keep up that bruising running style in the SEC, but his never-ending motor will sure to get the crowd behind him.

LSU got the jump on Curry with a lot of attention early on and has not had much to fear from other teams since his commitment in June, despite offers from teams like Southern Cal, Michigan and Florida
