Magazu's a Pirate, and other things...

Quick stops along the recruiting trail:

*Providence High safety Damon Magazu recently committed to East Carolina. We’ll have more on Magazu, the son of Carolina Panthers offensive line coach Dave Magazu, soon. For now, we have to mention that he had 11 interceptions as a junior.
Stephen Curti
*Sumter (S.C.) High QB Stephen Curtis—No.16 on our S.C. Top 25 Prospects list, is receiving more and more attention. Sumter offensive coordinator Grayson Howell noted that in the past two weeks, Buffalo, Western Michigan, Clemson, South Carolina, Tennessee, N.C. State, North Carolina, Vanderbilt and Rutgers have come to the school to check on Curtis and OL Marques Pair.

No offers yet, but interest is picking up. While the Tigers and Gamecocks don’t seem overly interested, others obviously are. Vanderbilt offensive coordinator Ted Cain was in on Monday and is came back Wednesday to watch Curtis throw during practice.

*Finally, South Carolina has offered Duncan Byrnes WR Nick Jones a scholarship. Jones, who caught 68 passes for 814 yards and six scores last season, also has offers from Northern Illinois and Georgia Southern. But more of the big boys are coming; Penn State, Florida, North Carolina and Michigan have also expressed interest in him. --Stan Olson
