Buford grad Jessel Curry, who played sparingly as a true freshman last season at Auburn, has enrolled at Delaware, where he will be eligible to play immediately.

“I needed not just a location change. I needed an area change,” the linebacker told the News Journal of Wilmington (Del.) on Monday, his first day of classes at his new school. “I needed a place that was a little more personal.”

Curry saw spot duty in six early-season games for the Tigers last season, but was off the official roster late in the season, including Auburn’s BCS National Championship Game roster. He did not participate in spring practice this year with the Tigers.
