According to a report from @perepelovsky at egamersworld.com, we might soon witness Rahul “Curry” Nemani make his switch to Valorant. The same was too earlier reported by George Geddes on his Twitter handle.
The 18-year-old is high on the list of priorities of the Korean-North American squad as they look for a new fifth player after they parted ways with Braxton “brax” Pierce and Keven “AZK” Larivière from their Valorant Division.
Curry is one of the three players that Rebirth Esports currently have on their substitutes list. He had recently steered Rebirth to a runner-up position at the DreamHack Open in January 2021: North America where they lost to PaiN Gaming in the BO5 Grand finale.
Formerly of Triumph, Curry joined the Alan “Shakezullah” Hardeman led the side in April 2020 as a replacement for Peter ‘Asuna’ Mazuryk. During his time at the same, Triumph was able to topple TeamOne in the finals of ESEA Season 33: Premier Division – North America followed by the championship at the Mythic League FPL Cup #1. After spending just four months with the roster, Curry decided to step down to pursue his college.
Since their exit from the First Strike and VCT’s Qualifier #1, T1 decided to overhaul their roster with the signings of former CSGO Professional Timothy “Autimatic” Ta and ex-Cloud9 Team Psychologist David Dennis as their head coach. With these recent changes, T1 might consider bringing in Curry to round out their Valorant roster.
With Curry’s addition, T1 would have:
- Sam “DaZeD” Marine (Captain)
- Timothy “Autimatic” Ta
- Tyler “Skadoodle” Latham
- Ha “Spyder” Jung-woo
- Rahul “Curry” Nemani
- David Denis (Head Coach)
