Quote:
LB Da’von Durant of Butler Junior College, KS said last week he would commit to USC this week when he met with recruiter Kirk Botkin. That meeting took place on Tuesday. The commitment did not.
“It went well, it went real well,” Durant said of the meeting. “We talked about the defense they are running, school, academics, a little bit of everything. I didn’t commit. I’m going to wait and get out and visit and see what’s out there and make a decision then. Ain’t noting going to change as far as right now.”
Durant said academics is not the issue. “I’m just going to go visit some places and see what else is out there,” he said. “Me and coach Botkin have a great relationship. We talk almost every day. He didn’t say too much about going ahead and commit. I think he feels pretty strong with me. He said he’s ready to get me back home and get me on the field to make plays. I think I feel it in my heart but just trying not to cause too much commotion right now and go out and visit some places.”
Durant said Botkin is ready to take his commitment anytime but he’d like to visit USC first just to get a closer look. “I really just want to get out there and visit and really get a feeling and see some stuff on film of what defense they are running. I want to see how well I fit in that defense. If I fit perfect I’ll make the decision then.”
Durant said he would like visit Texas A&M, Florida State and Arizona State along with a trip to USC this summer. A recruiter from Texas A&M was out Tuesday and Florida State was in Thursday.
Durant added that while at Butler Botkin talked to his roommate DL Ulric Jones who is from Alabama and left him his card.

I haven't heard anything at all from or about Durant after the news that he was very near to committing to USC, and that he had set a date. IMO something substantial has happened, and I would now be surprised to see him ever wear Garnet & Black....

It is interesting that he was supposed to commit a while ago if everything was good to go with his grades, and he still hasn't pulled the trigger. With him and Lewis both visiting ASU this weekend, it does make you wonder if something is going on, because that's where Darius Caldwell ended up after his academic fiasco.

With JUCO's it's typically when they can enroll (after grades, of course) Much more valuable to have a guy who can come in & go thru spring ball & summer workouts than guys who can't enroll until fall.

i.e. if a JUCO has say 2 to play 2, getting him in the fall generally doesn't add near the value.


Not saying that's what the case is here, but Durant is a player I'd love to get & I think he badly wants to be here. Hope it works out.

TM of TBS said DD is not a take unless he can enroll in Jan 2015. I knew it was important for him to get in for spring practice, but I had never heard that before.

Any more news? Seems like I read in another thread that he was going to be an EE like he's already committed , but maybe it was meant that "IF he comes here he will be an EE"

It's just hat the guy above you wrote. If had can EE in January, than we will take him. Davon said he's going to take some visits and keep his options open. There's no question about SC wanting him at SC, but it's a matter of him being eligible.

IMO, if he can EE here in January, he's coming here, no matter how hard aTm, Arizona St or ole miss push.

TBS reported earlier that he would be willing to redshirt for a year to separate him from the LBs who will be juniors. Solid pick up if true.

turns out it is not committable till his grades check out......he posted a picture on Instagram of Lewis and himself. Chris Clark said coaches are waiting till the end of the summer to make sure he can enroll early. Since that's the case, his grades must be pretty good if the coaches feel comfortable to give him the committable offer then and not in December.
