Thanks to the existence of notorious flopper Marcus Smart, I think it’s safe to say that K-State offensive lineman Evan Curl never will be the most famous person to hail from Flower Mound, Texas.

Evan William Curl (b. March 20, 1997) is a talented young offensive lineman who used a redshirt season in 2015 and played sparingly in each of his first two seasons.

Curl played sparingly for the White team in the 2016 spring game, and started for White in both the 2017 and 2018 spring games.

He played against Florida Atlantic in 2016, then played in three games in 2017, seeing time against Central Arkansas, Charlotte and UCLA in the Cactus Bowl.

Curl also was a first-team Academic All-Big 12 performer in 2017.

He competed in all 12 games last season, primarily on the field-goal protection unit.

Curl lettered two years under head coach Dane Johnson for Flower Mound High School, where he predominantly played left tackle for the Jaguars.

A second-team All-District 6-6A performer as both a junior and senior, he earned second-team academic all-state honors and was a team captain as a senior in 2014.

Curl also wrestled, finishing third in district play in the heavyweight division.

He is an Eagle Scout who is majoring in mechanical engineering and picked K-State over offers from California, North Texas, and Oklahoma State.
