 Draft Scout College Football Player News

  As Mataeo Durant starred as a running back and safety at Class 1A McCormick High School, many around South Carolina wondered if he would transfer somewhere larger to boost his resume for college recruiters. Durant, though, was already in a larger place. "My small town that I come from? 80 people," Durant said. Tiny Plum Branch, South Carolina, with its 87 residents, is located six miles south of McCormick, the biggest town in McCormick County with a whopping 2,992 residents.

Durant's rural home is a couple miles from the Savannah River, which forms the South Carolina-Georgia border in that part of the state. But finding a bridge to cross it means driving 12 miles to the north and west on U.S. 378, or 15 miles south on U.S. 221 toward Augusta. Still, those college recruiters found him back in 2016 and 2017. They discovered a player who'd dreamed of playing college football since he'd made the 80-mile trip to Clemson with an uncle to watch the Tigers play as a young boy. - Herald Sun
