LU Head Coach Will Davis on Durand:
"Reese was the first person that we offered in the 2018 class. He has game changing speed and has already shown an elite glove in centerfield. He reminds me of a kid that I coached at LSU named Andrew Stevenson who is already in the big leagues and really fits the profile of the type of athlete that we are trying to build this program around."
