WATCH: PSU Four-Star DL Commit Zane Durant is a Menace to Opposing QBs

It hasn’t been very fun to play Lake Nona High School for opposing quarterbacks this season, and a stout defensive line is why.

Lake Nona has racked up 63.5 tackles for loss and 29 sacks this season, and Penn State four-star defensive lineman commit Zane Durant has been the driving force along the line. The converted linebacker leads the team with an astounding 25 tackles for loss, 13 sacks, on 37 quarterback hurries, and four forced fumbles in just nine games this season.

At 6-foot-1, 251 pounds, Durant isn’t the biggest lineman in the world, but he’s strong enough and quick enough to bully opposing offensive lines from the interior to get into the backfield — on what feels like every play.

Lake Nona is coming off a 35-0 win over East River High School on Friday, continuing a trend of dominant defensive displays. The Lions have allowed just three points over the last four games, including three consecutive shutouts. After an 0-2 start this season, the Lions rebounded with a 7-1 stretch of play fueled by the defense.

Durant is a Top-300 recruit in the nation, according to 247Sports, checking in at 294th nationally. He’s rated as the 39th-ranked defensive lineman and the 37th-ranked recruit from Florida. Rivals rates him as the 22nd-ranked defensive tackle and 40th-ranked recruit from Florida.
