In-state quarterback Jared Curtis released his top 10 schools, and Tennessee football made the cut.
Georgia, Alabama, Florida State, Notre Dame, South Carolina, Michigan, Ohio State, Texas A&M and Ole Miss joined Tennessee as the top schools for the four-star quarterback.
Curtis ranks as the No. 10 prospect in the 2026 class by 247Sports Composite. He also ranks as the No. 2 quarterback and the No. 1 prospect from Tennessee. The 6-foot-3 and 210-pound Curtis attends Nashville Christian School.
Curtis currently holds scholarship offers from 26 schools. He was extended a scholarship offer from Tennessee in June.
“They’re not far from home at all, and they pass the ball a lot,” Curtis told 247Sports. “That’s a plus, of course. Just in-state — I like them. … I think they will (be high on my list). I’m not sure yet, because I haven’t narrowed any down yet. But I think they’ll for sure be (at the) top.”
Curtis Completed 123-of-208 pass attempts for 2,285 yards with 27 touchdowns and 8 interceptions his freshman year. He also ran for 481 yards and 7 touchdowns.
Andrew Ivins of 247Sports gave a scouting report for Curtis.
“A big-armed quarterback prospect with some moxie. Owns a favorable build having measured roughly 6-foot-3, 215 pounds as a 9th grader,” Ivins writes.
“Started football career off playing running back before getting a look under center. Instantly found success at his new position, earning Mr. Football runner-up honors in Tennessee after a freshman campaign in which he won 10 games and totaled just over 2,750 yards of offense. Not afraid to dial up the deep ball and tends to connect on plenty of vertical shots. Also excels at hitting timing-based breaking routes over the middle.
“Shouldn’t be classified as a true dual-threat talent, but can move the chains with his legs and work off-script when the pocket collapses. Camp footage shows both pace and touch. Must keep developing and learn how to read the complex defenses he will face at the next level, but looks like one of the top signal callers early on in the 2026 cycle. Likely to find success in a variety of different offensive systems given his well-rounded skill set.”
