Durall makes his choice

South Houston (Texas) running back Darius Durall has made his decision.
The 5-foot-10, 180-pound standout has received interest from TCU, Boise State, and Houston over the course of the recruiting process, and he received his first offer from Houston Baptist. On Thursday he received an offer from the SMU Mustangs, and on Sunday night he was ready to make his decision to be a Mustang.
"I have a lot of friends and teammates from Houston Lamar going there, my quarterback Darrell Colbert and a wide receiver Shelby Walker," Durall said. "We're close friends and I think it will be a great experience for all of us to play again together."
Durall transferred to South Houston from Houston Lamar for his senior season, and rushed for 686 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2013. As a junior at Houston Lamar, he rushed for 333 yards and 5 touchdowns.
He has been clocked at 4.41 in the 40-yard dash, and believes he has a lot to offer the Mustang program.
"I feel like I'm an open field runner," Durall said. "If I get in the open field I can make a lot of big plays. I'm a speed running back."
Durall is the 17th commitment of SMU's 2014 recruiting class.
