He will be sentenced on June 15.Davon Durant pleaded guilty to one misdemeanor count of disorderly conduct. Per the plea the other counts will be dismissed at sentencing.— MC Superior Court (@courtpio) May 28, 2015Durant, a top recruit, was arrested in March after he was accused of hitting his girlfriend. The initial 911 call came from a witness.

The girlfriend, later identified as Kelsi Langley, corroborated what the witness told police, but she later recanted. She said she was just angry with Durant after a fight and "wasn't thinking" when she talked to officers.

Police continued their investigation.

Durant pleaded not guilty to charges of aggravated assault on March 25.

As part of his agreement to plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct, the other charges will be dropped when he is sentenced in a little more than two weeks.

Slated to make his debut as a Sun Devil this year, Durant was suspended indefinitely after his arrest. The junior-college transfer enrolled at ASU early so that he could participate in spring practice.
