2007 Fairmont Heights Grad Lands at Alabama

It's been a long road for Kendall Durant to reach Division I college basketball, but things seem like they might work out just fine for the 2007 Fairmont Heights graduate.

Durant attended Carroll for three years and Southern Maryland Christian for one year then graduated from Fairmont Heights. The 6-foot-3 guard then spent one season at New Hampton (N.H.) Prep and signed a letter-of-intent to play for Virginia Tech. But he failed to meet the NCAA's minimum academic eligibility standards and instead headed to Weatherford (Tex.) College for two years of junior college.

He averaged 16 points per game as a freshman and 15 this past season and has signed a letter-of-intent to play for Alabama after a weekend visit to Tuscaloosa.

"Anthony Grant recruited him a little when he was at VCU when Kendall was in high school," Fairmont Heights Coach George Wake said. "But Kendall wanted to go to Virginia Tech so they backed off. But Anthony Grant is at Alabama now, so I guess he didn't forget about him."
