Former Arizona State linebacker Davon Durant has had a rough past since he signed with the Sun Devils earlier this year. The premiere JUCO linebacker was left Arizona State after he was charged in a domestic violence incident in March that involved his then-girlfriend.
According to College Football Talk, Durant has transferred into Conference USA and will be eligible to practice with the Marshall Thundering Herd this season. Due to NCAA regulations, he will not be able to play until 2016, where he will have two years of eligibility left to play.
“We are fully aware of Davon’s situation at Arizona State and take very seriously all of the issues he once faced,” Herd head coach Doc Holliday said in a statement. “We have done our due diligence in reviewing all available information, as we do with any student-athlete who enters our program. We are comfortable with the information we have gathered and all of the individuals with whom we have spoken are confident that Davon will embrace this opportunity to represent Marshall Athletics and this university with class.”
Durant was a four-star member of the Sun Devils’ 2015 recruiting class coming out of Butler Community College. In 2014, Durant, a South Carolina native, had committed to the South Carolina Gamecocks before switching his decision to Arizona State in October.
