With the visit process officially underway, Davon Godchaux recently took in LSU for their first national junior day, after having already attended their junior day reserved for Louisiana prospects.
The 6-4 245 pound Godchaux has been around the Baton Rouge campus many times within the last year. Even though that is the case, Godchaux explained that he enjoys his time with the staff and being around the program every time he is on the LSU campus. This time around was no different for the class of 2014 defensive end.
"This junior day visit was pretty much like every other visit to the school," said Godchaux. "I got to talk to one of the defensive coaches. I asked him where I fit in the program."
"He said they look for guys like me and that I can play a lot of different places on the line. They like that about me. He just told me where I would fit on the team."
While he has been around the campus numerous times, the Plaquemine High School standout had a chance to see a different side of the LSU program on Saturday, something Godchaux was hopeful of seeing.
"I got to see all of the campus and I haven't had a chance to see everything before," said Godchaux. "The academic center was great and it was cool learning about all of the things they do for athletes there. It was a great visit."
Godchaux has been looking for an offer from his home-state school from the beginning of the recruiting process. While that didn't happen on his most recent visit, Godchaux understands what he has to do next to increase his chances of getting that offer.
"They invited me to both of their camps while I was on my visit," said Godchaux. "They really want to see me work out for them in person. I'm really looking forward to getting up there for the camp."
Even though he didn't get his offer from LSU last weekend, Godchaux is remaining optimistic. The three-star prospect explained that it is starting to become clear to him that he will have other options if an LSU offer doesn't come through.
"I'd love to get an offer from LSU, but if I don't, then it wasn't meant to be," said Godchaux. "I would just love to have an offer from my home school. I think it would be great if that happened, but if it doesn't then I have other options as well."
Regardless of the fact that he was just on campus, Godchaux has already started planning to be back at LSU in the near future to see the team go through spring practice.
"I'm going to try to visit for one of the spring practices next," said Godchaux. "I want to get a chance to see what their practices are like, especially in the spring.
Following his visit to LSU, Godchaux still maintained a top-five of LSU, Alabama, Notre Dame, Texas A&M, and Florida. The next step in the process for Godchaux consists of him seeing one of these schools for their junior day this week.
"This week I'm going to Alabama for their junior day," said Godchaux. "I'm just taking things easy. I'm also going to be going to a lot of combines to try and get more exposure and things like that."
