Junior defensive tackle Aaron Curry is planning to transfer from Nebraska to Oklahoma, according to a report from the Rivals site on Sunday night.

Curry started eight games for the Huskers in 2013, but has primarily been seeing snaps with the 2s this fall camp with Maliek Collins and Vincent Valentine emerging as the top-unit guys.

Junior Kevin Williams has also come back from a knee injury with a strong camp and coaches are high on the potential of sophomore Kevin Maurice. Logan Rath, a sophomore walk-on from Giltner who transferred from South Dakota State, could also be in the mix, creating a bit of a logjam on the interior.

That said, the more depth the better at defensive tackle, and Curry has valuable game experience. A year ago, he had 26 tackles, including three for loss and two sacks.

Curry does have a family link to the Sooners. His dad, Aaron Curry Sr., played basketball at Oklahoma.

While Curry was not present at Saturday's practice, no confirmation of a potential transfer has come from Nebraska's end, though the matter figures to get attention in post-practice interviews after Monday's practice.
