Godchaux takes in LSU

2014 DE Davon Godchaux has a lot of offers, but the one he's cherished most — from LSU — hasn't come yet. He isn't discouraged though, and after his trip to campus on Tuesday, with another visit planned for Saturday, Godchaux's still optimistic that offer will come soon.

Still looking for that LSU offer he's desired for some time, 2014 DE Davon Godchaux made a trip to campus on Tuesday.

He took in the Tigers' fourth spring practice of the season, which was the first time he'd gotten to see LSU work out. He arrived about an hour into practice, and the team was already into their individual position drills.

Godchaux roamed from station to station, checking out all the position groups, not just the defensive line. He came away impressed with the intensity shown by the players and coaches, a major change from what he's used to on the high school level.

"I loved it," Godchaux said. "They were getting after each other. That was my first practice…Everything's sped up, especially with [Defensive line coach Brick] Haley and the d-linemen. You can't take it easy out there. Everything's intense."

When Godchaux walked over to the offensive line drills, where Les Miles was working, the head coach interrupted his drill to spend time conversing with Godchaux.

"He asked if I had committed to anyone yet," Godchaux said. "I told him I hadn't, so I think an offer's coming really soon."

That would be a welcome addition to Godchaux's offer list, which is well into double digits after he picked up an offer from USC on Thursday. But LSU is obviously standing out, especially because of the relationship he has with the coaching staff.

"Coach Haley, we're building a strong relationship," Godchaux said. "And Frank Wilson, he's my recruiting coordinator, and I called him up yesterday, and I'm building a strong relationship with him too."

Godchaux said he left practice on Tuesday early, so he didn't have an opportunity to have in-depth conversations with the coaches. So when he called Wilson on Wednesday, he invited him to come back to LSU on Saturday for the Tigers' first scrimmage of the spring.

Godchaux plans to attend and hopes to spend more time getting to better know the coaches.

"It's something to look forward to, because [that kind of relationship] is something I'd want no matter where I go," Godchaux said. "They said to expect this kind of intensity when I play in college."

Following LSU on Saturday, Godchaux plans to participate in the NUC Five-Star Showcase in Zachary on Sunday. He said he also plans to spend three days at Alabama later this spring, and will attend Ole Miss' Junior Day on April 5.

He also plans to make a trip to the West Coast this summer to camp at USC.
