Tide signs JUCO Point Guard Kendall Durant

Welcome to UA, Kendall Durant. He is a 6'3 185 lb point guard from Weatherford C.C. in Weatherford, TX. He originally signed with Virginia Tech in 2007 but did not qualify. He chose us over Penn State, Colorado, Virginia Tech, and South Carolina. He's originally from New Hampton, NH. His cousin is Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder. From what I have read, he can play the 1 or the 2, has a decent shot, and is strong and aggressive. I suspect this was an insurance signing just in case Releford does not qualify.

DJC: Is there any meat to the rumor that Releford won't qualify?

Durant looks solid, but the development Releford has made over the last year makes me anxious to see him play sooner rather than later.

I have no idea, I heard he recently re-took the ACT but feels pretty good about it. My guess is that he makes it, but isn't quite there yet.
