Durden Checks Out Spring Game

Julian Durden accounted for 1,870 yards in 2010, rushing for 24 touchdowns.

Montour running back Julian Durden didn't let rainy conditions scare him off from attending the Pitt spring game on Saturday. The 5-8, 170-pound running back was one of a number of local prospects in attendance.

"It was all right, a little confusing because of the rain," Durden said. "They put us inside. I think I need to see (the offense) on a better day. It was all muddy, so it seemed different."

In addition to the weather, from watching Pitt's pro-style offense in the past, Durden said the no-huddle offense Pitt put on display was the other thing that looked different.

"Going from a pro offense they had, they still run the ball a decent amount," Durden added. "They don't huddle anymore. It's more of an up-tempo offense."

Durden said he enjoyed his time at the spring game, and that he would be back at Pitt this summer for one of its prospect camps.

In the mean time, another in-state school has gotten involved in his recruiting.

"Temple has gained a lot of interest, I talk to them," Durden added. "They didn't throw an offer yet. They told me wanted to come for spring practice. They're looking to replace their star running back."

In addition to going back to Pitt for its prospect camp, he is also planning to camp at Maryland. He is also looking to take unofficial visits to Temple, West Virginia and Cincinnati. Durden will be at the Nike Football Training Camp in Columbus on May 21.
