Word here in Greenwood is that it's us with a big lead and everybody else a distant second. He's also good friends with Marquavious(Quay) Lewis which can only help us with both players.

Per Kornblut,
Durant talks to USC Monday and Gamecocks are very strong with him

March 10, 2014 by Phil Kornblut Leave a Comment

Da’Von Durant
Former Greenwood and Shrine Bowl LB Da’Von Durant now attends Butler Junior College in Kansas where he helped the Grizzlies finish sixth nationally last season. He is on track to graduate in December and will have three years to play two. And it appears now he will spend those years at USC.
Durant has offers from USC, Clemson, NC State and Ole Miss. He’s also drawing interest from LSU, Florida State, Georgia, Arkansas and Tennessee. But he was strong on the Gamecocks coming out of high school and that hasn’t changed.
Durant talked on the phone Monday with USC recruiter Kirk Botkin. “We’ve got a good relationship and we talk a lot,” Durant said. “He’s very interested and I’m very interested in them. I really like them a lot. I liked them coming out of high school and still feel that way. I’m leaning that way. It’s a good fit there. I don’t have a number two. Carolina is definitely at the top and everybody else is about the same.”
Durant said Botkin is coming out to visit him after USC’s spring game. Durant goes on spring break Friday but is staying in Kansas. He won’t be able to visit USC or anywhere else until the summer.
Durant said his academics look good and should have no problem finishing up in December and enrolling in January. He’s the third junior college player with South Carolina roots being recruited by USC. The other two are DE Marquavius Lewis, Durant’s former teammate at Greenwood, who is now at Hutchinson JC, KS, and DL DJ Jones of East Mississippi JC who was Durant’s Shrine Bowl teammate following his senior season at Wren.

Wonder if they can help with Chalmers.

That is shaping up nicely. Hope they stay on track to graduate and enroll early. Best of all, it solves dumbo's juco problem. Hopefully, Climpson won't get Lewis or Jones. Problem solved dumbo.

I think we have a fairly comfortable lead with Chalmers already despite what he is saying in interviews

For some reason I was thinking Georgia placed him, but I must be mixing him up with someone else. Staley maybe?
Physically, Durant looked SEC ready by his last year in HS. Would be a great addition.

If linebacker Davon Durant of Butler (Kan.) Community College had been a qualifier out of Greenwood High, he may very well be starting for South Carolina right now. The 6-foot-2, 240-pound Durant was one of the better at his position in the southeast and was impressive during the Shrine Bowl of the Carolinas his senior year. The Gamecocks placed him and have an excellent shot at getting him back. Durant is the top linebacker in 2015 from the junior college ranks according to 247Sports. Mangus is his recruiter of record and 100 percent of the Crystal Ball predictions are in for USC.

After passing up an offer to Marshall to enroll at El Dorado (Kans.) Butler Community College, Davon Durant has emerged as the early No. 1 linebacker prospect in the juco ranks, and could very well end up at South Carolina, the program that placed him out of Greenwood (S.C.) high school.

Durant looking at early May commitment

By Phil Kornblut
March 31, 2014

LB Da’Von Durant of Butler JC, KS began his spring practice Monday. His spring game is set for May 9th. Soon after that, Durant plans to make a commitment. Right now he’s pointed towards USC and there’s doesn’t appear much can get in the Gamecocks’ way with the Greenwood native. ‘

Durant talked Monday with Gamecock recruiter and linebackers coach Kirk Botkin. “He was just pretty much keeping in touch,” Durant said. “Coach Botkin is the only one (recruiter) I talk to all the time. It’s South Carolina, definitely, right now. I’m pretty much set but I’m just waiting to see what comes. I’ll be 100% after spring ball.”

And Durant said his grades are good and not an issue with him moving forward with a decision.

He recently picked up offers from Utah State and Washington State and said Alabama has been “on me pretty hard.” Clemson has also offered but he’s not heard from recruiter Brent Venables in some time.

Durant also has offers from Ole Miss and NC State.

Sounds good to me!

A lot of schools like UGA, UF etc backed off bc they knew he wasn't gonna qualify. He always wanted a USC offer and he's gonna get one if he has his grades in check. I think he'll be a part of this class.

PK said he's going to commit to SC on Tuesday!

#1 JUCO ILB, 4 Star, 92 rating on 247sports. However, he said he's going to play OLB this upcoming season in a 3-4 scheme. He is on track to graduate in December, enroll in January and will have 3 years to play 2.

This is great news! Considering that Ward will be using the 3-4 a lot this season and in the future he can be a immediate impact player.
