Three-star RB Mataeo Durant enjoys Wake Forest trip

McCormick (S.C.) running back Mataeo Durant visited Wake Forest this week and spoke with Scout following the trip

Mataeo Durant visited Wake Forest on Thursday.

The three-star running back enjoyed his time in Winston-Salem.

"The visit was good," said the 6-foot, 185-pound Durant. "I tried on the uniforms, toured the facilities and hung out with some of the players. It made them even higher on my list.

"My favorite part was the tour with coach (Dave) Clawson, but everything was good. The facilities are nice and there's a lot if new construction going on. The campus is also nice."

Durant has developed a strong relationship with running backs coach John Hunter.

"He's a nice guy and very down to earth," Durant said. "He also knows football. Coach Hunt and coach Clawson told me I'm their top running back target."

The McCormick standout talked with Clawson one-on-one.

"It was a good conversation," Durant said. "We didn't even talk that much about football. It was more about life and how things were going. 

"He told me I could be great. He said I could make an early impact and be a program-changer."

Durant does not have a timeline for his decision.
