Davon Durant and the Arizona State football program are all in limbo at the moment. Durant met with the ASU board regarding a March domestic violence incident that resulted in his expulsion from the school.
Durant met with the board last week regarding re-enrollment to the school, and more importantly to the team, his ability to play linebacker.
Transferring from Butler County Community College, Durant was one of the four-star recruits in this year’s class. A late verbal after previously being committed to South Carolina made Arizona State appear that much stronger for next season.
The incident the board is overhearing is the report that Durant hit a woman in the face and grabbed her around the neck. The visible bruising for Durant to plead guilty to once count of disorderly conduct.
While his sentencing is set for the middle of the month, the Board’s decision is a moving date. The Republic reported the university’s process for the future:
“The hearing did not produce an immediate decision. The University Hearing Board has up to three days to issue a recommendation to an ASU dean of students. The final determination on Durant’s fate could take up to 20 days.”
While Durant’s fate is currently uncertain, the balance for his legal justice and his performance on the field will be at odds until the dean comes down with the decision.
