When three-star defensive end Davon Godchaux began the recruiting process, things were moving slowly for him. The 6-4 245 pound Godchaux has seen his stock skyrocket over the last several months, with him collecting offers from major programs all over the country.
For the time being, Godchaux isn't focusing on recruiting as much as he has in the past. Godchaux is using the remainder of the spring to try to get everything in order academically for himself.
"It's been going really well," said Godchaux, when asked about the recruiting process. "I'm just sitting back and relaxing and trying to take care of my academics and things like that. I'm letting it all play out."
It has been a busy last few months for Godchaux, with the offers starting to roll in. Following the flurry of offers that he received, there are certain ones that are currently standing out to the Plaquemine High School (LA) standout.
"I got offers from Florida, Florida State, USC, and Nebraska recently," said Godchaux. "Florida State and Florida are standing out to me. USC is standing out to me as well. The same goes for Louisiana Tech, Ole Miss, and Mississippi State."
With so many schools coming after Godchaux, he has started to focus on building relationships with the coaching staffs at those schools. At this point, Godchaux feels as though he has successfully done that with multiple coaching staffs.
"I like the relationships that I have with the coaches at Louisiana Tech," said Godchaux. "Even though it's a small school, their coach has been on me pretty hard. I have great relationships with the Ole Miss coaches and the Florida coaches. I've talked to them a lot."
"Florida State is up there as well. UCF has been on me pretty hard and I have built a great relationship with their coaching staff. The same goes for USC."
While he explained that he doesn't have plans to visit any of the schools that recently offered him, Godchaux said that he would attempt to get on a college campus this weekend. If he can't make it to one of two schools this weekend, he will have to wait until the summer.
"I'm either going to Alabama and LSU this weekend," said Godchaux. "If I don't go though I'll probably just sit at home. LSU is more likely because it's closer, but I've been on the road all weekend and I just kind of want a break."
"I'm probably going to go to LSU and Alabama for camps this summer to just compete. Plus, I want to go back to the schools at some point."
In terms of the contact he has had in recent weeks with LSU, Godchaux explained that things have slowed down a bit. However, even though he hasn't spoken with a coach in several weeks, Godchaux still receives consistent correspondence from the Tigers.
"I haven't been calling Coach [Frank] Wilson," said Godchaux. "I've been getting mail from them and things, but I haven't spoken to them in a while. I've just been busy with everything."
Godchaux has made it clear from the beginning that he covets an offer from the home-state Bayou Bengals of LSU. However, the talented end explained that he is very comfortable with the offers that he has collected so far, enough to make a decision.
"I don't really care if I get any more offers for the rest of the process because I'm very happy with the ones I have," said Godchaux. "I have enough to be able to make a great college decision and start lining up official visits."
