While he is still shy of starting his junior year of high school, Tegen Curley has just made his college commitment. The 6’7” 2025 wing of Marshfield High School (MO) and Yanders Law announced his commitment to Austin Peay and their first-year head coach Corey Gipson. 

Over the past few months, Curley has continued to grow his game and build his recruitment stock. During the spring with Yanders Law he was one of the top 16U players on the NY2LA Association and then continued to play well while playing up at the 17U level in July. While he entered the grassroots seasons without a division one offer, that quickly changed. In April Youngstown State became his first offer with Austin Peay then offering him in July. 

This past Saturday, Curley made the trip to Tennessee for Austin Peay’s elite camp. “Every player and coach felt like family, it was an overall enjoyable experience,” Curley said about his trip there. “I like the family environment and the core values the team has,” are the main things reasons on why he chose Austin Peay. 

“I committed early because I felt like Austin Peay was the best place for me to grow as a person and as a basketball player,” he said about committing just halfway through his high school career. “Also really like Coach Gipson and the entire staff at Austin Peay.” With still two years away from reaching the college level, Curley could be a steal in their 2025 recruitment class.
