If the name Kevin Durant does not ring a bell, it will soon. At just 18 years old, this University of Texas freshman is the biggest and youngest senastion in college hoops this year!

Kevin Durant - A Star in the Making

Even before he was 10 years old, Kevin was a basketball prodigy - winning numerous national championships with his Maryland AAU summer team. In high school, he starred at Oak Hill Academy, the same Virginia prep school that produced current NBA star Carmelo Anthony. He returned home for his senior year, enrolling at Montrose Christian High School in Rockville, Maryland. During his senior season, the 6'9" forward was named to the 2006 McDonalds All American Team.

Kevin Durant - Freshman Sensation

Kevin Durant took college basketball by storm as he dominated his opponents on a nightly basis. In a game versus Texas Tech in March 2007, he scored 37 points and pulled down an unheard of 23 rebounds! His 25.1 points and 11.4 rebounds per game average was enough to earn him numerous awards, including Big 12's Player of the Year, National Freshman of the Year and the ESPN Player of the Year. Kevin has also been selected to play for the US National Team.

Kevin Durant - To Go or Not to Go

Without question, if Kevin decides to leave Texas after his freshman year, he will be a top three pick in the 2007 NBA Draft. His skill level at this stage has been compared to the likes of Kevin Garnett and Tracy McGrady. Kevin and fellow freshman standout Greg Oden of Ohio State are believed to be part of the next generation of NBA stars. So far, Kevin has kept quiet about his future intentions, but his father has told newspapers that Kevin may stay in college in order to get better and win a National Championship.
