Is Pitt still involved with RB Durden

For a good while Pitt has been showing serious interest in Julian Durden, one of the top Class of 2012 running backs from Pennsylvania.
In fact, the 5-foot-8, 165-pound prospect received an offer from Pitt earlier in the process.
As recently as August, Durden said his two favorite schools were Pitt and Kent State. That's no longer the case.
"It's really not so much Pitt anymore," Durden said when asked about favorites late this week. "They just don't seem like they're as interested.
"I do like Kent State, Temple and Ohio University. Those are favorites. I'd put Kent State at number one."
The McKees Rocks (Pa.) Montour standout has offers from those schools plus one more.
"I actually got an offer from Buffalo just recently," he said.
Durden said he isn't sure which other schools might be evaluating him so there's a chance that his current list of favorites is the final list of schools that he will choose from.
This fall Durden plans on visited Pitt, Temple, Kent State and maybe Ohio.
