Two lead for Pennsylvania RB

Two schools are sticking out for one of the top offensive skill position players from the Keystone State.

Julian Durden visited Pitt and Temple over the summer and he has been in contact with a lot of schools over the course of the recruiting process.

The 5-foot-8, 165-pound running back from McKees Rocks (Pa.) Montour said over the weekend that two schools are sticking out.

"I'd say Pitt and Kent State are my favorites," Durden explained.

"Pitt is my hometown school and I like what they do with their running backs in that offense. It's just a good school, too.

"I mainly like the school at Kent State. It's still close to home and it's pretty big, plus they play some good teams."

Both of those schools plus Ohio, Temple and Youngstown State have verbally offered Durden.

"Boston College sends me stuff and Penn State sends me stuff, too. I'd like to hear more from Penn State," he added.

"I'll take some official visits but I don't know when yet. I'm going to wait until after my season to make a decision."
