Walk-on starting punter walks away

Evan Woodbery of The Mobile Press-Register reported today that Clinton Durst has decided to leave the football program after a dispute with the new staff over his scholarship status.

According to the story, Durst does not plan to return to the program.

Durst, who had never previously played organized football before last year, beat out preseason all-SEC punter Ryan Shoemker for the starting spot.

Shoemaker appears to be the frontrunner for the starting punter spot with both Durst and another backup punter, Patrick Tatum, no longer in the mix.
