Curtis Calls it for Fairfield
Northwest Catholic senior guard Matt Curtis made a verbal commitment to Fairfield on Tuesday night according to Team Spartans director Joe Chatman.
Curtis is expected to complete a post-graduate year at St. Thomas More before joining the Stags as a member of their 2023 recruiting class.
He is a rarity in this day and age because he has played for both the same school and grassroots program throughout his four years of high school. He entered the high school ranks with a big early reputation, but quickly proved himself deserving of it, establishing himself as one of the top freshmen in the CIAC from day one. He's gone on to have an extremely decorated career at NWC, with last year's pandemic potentially being the only thing capable of keeping him from rewriting the record books.
It has been a similar story in the grassroots world, as Curtis has been a consistent staple of a Spartans program that has come up the ranks and made noise, both locally and nationally, in recent years.
"Matty is the best three-level scorer I have ever coached at the high school level," said Chatman. "He will be ready to contribute at Fairfield right away."
Curtis is a hard-nosed scoring guard with a special ability to make tough shots off the dribble, not just in the mid-range area but behind the arc as well.
