Husky fans who have been wondering "where's the beef?" with the 2014 recruiting class got some good news this morning from Phoenix, AZ lineman Natrell Curtis via Twitter:

Curtis is a big body, reportedly measuring in at 6'2" and well over 300 pounds. He's been projected at both OG and NT; the Huskies have told him they see him fitting in on the defensive side of the ball. Curtis has claimed an impressive offer list from programs like Ohio State, Oklahoma, Notre Dame, Nebraska, Arkansas, Arizona, Arizona State, Cal and others. However his weight has become an issue, and many of those programs have backed off as a result. When he's in shape, he's displayed a terrific motor and can man-handle opponents.
This will be a commitment to keep an eye on - there are significant personal reasons that may end up keeping Curtis in Arizona if the home-state schools press him to flip.
