Tudor: Five recruiting long shots who delivered big results
Wed Feb 1, 2012
Darian Durant, UNC: Although the 5-11, 205-pound Durant wound up in the Canadian Football League rather than the NFL, his story was much the same as ECU's Jeff Blake’s. At Wilson High in Florence, S.C., Durant was a standout quarterback but recruited almost exclusively as a defensive back by colleges. He had a two-star rating in the 2000 class. At UNC, he got a break, made the most of it and passed for almost 9,000 yards in spite of some injury problems.
