Two Visits Down, Two to Go

Scout quickly caught up with five-star defensive end K'Lavon Chaisson who graded his Texas official visit and will make a quick turnaround to make his third official visit this week.


The first trip he took was to see LSU and this weekend he traveled to Austin  to see the Texas Longhorns and hear the pitch from new UT head coach Tom Herman and defensive coordinator Todd Orlando. On the 1-10 scale Chaisson gave the UT visit "8.9".  

Chaisson feels like he could fit into that stand-up edge role that Tyus Bowser starred at while playing in Orlando's defense at UH, a defense that he got to see and hear a lot about in his neck of the woods in the Houston area.

"They told me the positions and told me that I could be like the next Tyus Bowser," Chaisson said when previously asked about Texas thoughts about him in its defense.

"I think Tyus is actually a good player. I guess he was overlooked I guess because of the conference and the competition he was in, but I really liked him a lot and I want to be just like him probably."

Chaisson is now set to see Colorado for his third official visit. He will be taking the mid-week trip to Boulder, Colo., after spending less than one day off in between the trips. 


Colorado, which has done a great job recruiting the state of Texas in the 2017 cycle, is one of the schools that surprised people on Chaisson's cut-down Top 10 list back in the summer and it surprised again when he announced that he would be taking one of his official visits to see the school. 

"Colorado has done a good job recruiting me and I have heard Boulder is a great town so I wanted to go see it for myself," he recently told BuffStampede.com.

Chaisson has a visit to USC (1/27) listed on his profile for the final weekend before National Signing Day. 

Chaisson helped lead North Shore to a Texas Class 6A Division I state championship as a junior in 2015. He earned championship game Defensive MVP honors to go with First Team All-District and First Team All-State honors. 

As a senior in 2016, Chaisson helped North Shore to 21-6A District Defensive MVP and Scout.com All-Midlands honors as well as being named as an Under Armour All-American.
