New schools after Godchaux

Defensive end Davon Godchaux is preparing to dive into the heart of the college visit process over the next few weeks. He has some new schools that he would like to visit after recently adding four offers. The 2014 three-star also has some tweaks to his top list of schools.

For Davon Godchaux, the recruiting process has picked up steam over the last few weeks. Godchaux recently picked up multiple offers from schools such as Oklahoma State, Louisiana Tech, Houston, and his first SEC offer from the Rebels of Ole Miss.

Aside from the new offers, the 6-4 245 pound Godchaux has also seen interest from new schools pick up as well, with one telling the Plaquemine High School standout that an offer could soon be on the way.

"This recruiting process is starting to get hectic," said Godchaux. "South Carolina and Michigan have been coming after me recently. South Carolina said they were going to offer me very soon. I've been talking to a lot of coaches, but South Carolina told me that an offer is on the way."

While new interest is coming in from the Gamecocks and the Wolverines, Godchaux explained that several other schools have stayed in regular contact with him within the last several weeks, especially another school from the SEC.

"Louisiana Tech, Oklahoma State, Houston, Ole Miss, and Alabama have been contacting me the most recently," said Godchaux. "I've been talking to coach [Burton] Burns a lot. I actually just talked to him last night."

Godchaux also had a chance to take in the Alabama campus for their junior day a couple of weeks ago. He explained that he learned a lot about the campus and where he stands on their recruiting board.

"I went to the Alabama junior day and it was an awesome experience," said Godchaux. "It was intense. They are excited to come down and see me in the spring and I'm excited about that too. If I look good for them when they come to check me out, an offer isn't out of the question, according to coach Burns."

Even though the contact from the defending National Champions has Godchaux excited, Ole Miss has really caught his attention with the offer and what his role could be for the Rebels.

"First of all, I want to talk about Ole Miss," said Godchaux. "The coaches are great there. They told me that I could play early there if I come in and work hard. They discussed me pairing up with [Robert] Nkemdiche. I'm going to the Ole Miss junior day on April 5th."

Being from Louisiana, Godchaux has early interest in LSU. However, he has not had a chance to get in touch with the coaching staff in recent weeks, something that he hopes to do very soon.

"I have just received mail from them over the last few weeks," said Godchaux. "I have been meaning to call the coaches to talk to them, and I need to. I'll check them out again this spring."

Following his flurry of new offers, Godchaux has a couple of changes to his top list of schools, with two schools making their first appearance in his top five.

"LSU, Alabama, Ole Miss, Louisiana Tech, and Florida State are my top five," said Godchaux. "The recent visit to Alabama moved them up my list."

College visits are the next step in the process for Godchaux. As of now, the talented three-star defensive end is planning on making four or five visits throughout the spring to different schools.

"I'm going to try to go to Louisiana Tech at some point this spring," said Godchaux. "I'm going to return to Alabama for a practice as well. I'm going to LSU on the 14th of March and I'll probably be back for their spring game. I'll be at the Ole Miss junior day as well."

Godchaux added that most colleges he has spoken with so far in the process would be present at his school once spring football kicks off for him.
