Curry said his dream of playing professional basketball, and not a desire to leave Stillwater, prompted his decision. He also said, "money wasn't the issue.”
OSU coach Sean Sutton, who tried several times last week to convince Curry to stay, spoke highly of the combo guard.
"We've thoroughly enjoyed having JamesOn as a part of the Cowboy basketball family,” Sutton said. "I appreciate the many contributions that he's made to our program. He's a special young man who is a terrific basketball player. He also excelled in the classroom during his time in our program.”
Curry came to Stillwater after a scholarship offer to North Carolina was rescinded due to a drug conviction. Curry was on probation until this year.
"I finally got off probation and I'm feeling good, I'm feeling confident,” he said. "I got that monkey off my back, and I'm ready to go out and work hard and hopefully I'll get drafted. Hopefully, those three years (at OSU) did good.”
