Three-star tailback Julian Durden claims three schools are sticking out. Who is leading for the McKees Rocks (Pa.) Montour prospect at this time?
"The biggest college that has offered me is Pittsburgh and then I have Temple, Kent State, Youngstown State and Ohio," he said. "I'm not really sure what Pittsburgh is doing, I haven't talked to them in awhile, but I do get letters.
"I can say I'm really interested in Kent State, Temple and Ohio University."

Why do those stick out?
"I like the offense Temple runs, they also have what I want to major in, the health field," he said. "Kent State is up there because it's close to home and they seem really interested. It's the same with Ohio."
Durden plans to visit all three schools soon, but has yet to set up trips.
As he contemplates his options further, Durden broke down what's he looking for.
"I'd like to play on a big stage. I like a lot of energy and a good game atmosphere," he said. "I'd also like my family to come see me play.
"I want a chance to play too. I don't want to be a little fish in a big pond. I want to get up there and get a fair chance of playing, not sitting for two years."
Through five games, the 5-foot-8, 165-pounder has run for over 800-yards and 13 touchdowns.
"It's going good," he said of his season. "There's a big difference in my plays and numbers.
"I just think my footwork got a lot better this year. I've gotten a lot stronger and I just think I'm seeing things better than last year."
