Prior to his time at Indiana, Durr spent three seasons at USF. With the Bulls, he started in all but two of the 87 games he played in. He averaged 6.7 points, 6.5 rebounds and 1 block per game in three years at USF.
Durr’s best year came in 2020-21. In 19 contests, he averaged a career-best 8.8 points and 7.9 rebounds per game. He also posted three double-doubles that year. He reached a double-figure total in points 9 times and collected 10 rebounds or more in 7 contests.
Durr will have one year of eligibility to use at UCF.
