This is bad news for an Arizona State team counting on Davon Durant.
The Sun Devils most highly-touted defensive recruit in years — may never play a down after cops say he beat up and choked his girlfriend in Arizona earlier this month.
Davon Durant — a junior college transfer who was projected to be a starting linebacker for the Sun Devils — was arrested for felony aggravated assault after a witness reported seeing “a man hit a female.”
Cops responded to the scene — where the woman told police she was having an argument with Durant in a black Chevy Tahoe — when he demanded that she escort him up to her apartment so he could get his stuff (it sounds like they were breaking up).
After she refused to let him inside — Durant reportedly snapped — “hit her one time in the face and then grabbed her around the neck.”
The woman says Durant almost choked her out.
