LSU landed a commitment Thursday from 2016 offensive guard Donavaughn Campbell.
The Ponchatoula prospect picked up his offer Thursday and committed on the spot.
"I've always wanted to go to LSU," Campbell said. "It's my dream school. So I jumped on the offer."
That offer came during a conversation with LSU assistants Frank Wilson and Cam Cameron. It came as a surprise to Campbell.
"They watched my film and said I explosive," Campbell said. "They said they had to have me. Once I decided to commit, they were very excited."
At 6-foot-5, 340 pounds, Campbell projects as an offensive guard on the next level and said he'll likely play on the left side.
He caught the attention of LSU offensive line coach Jeff Grimes during camp this past summer.
"He said I have very good footwork and that I'm powerful," Campbell said. "He thinks I'm a great player...I have quick feet. I can get to the second level and finish blocks. I'm basically an all-around player. I do need to work on my pass blocking and different schemes."
LSU was the first offer for Campbell, and he didn't need to receive any others before making his commitment.
"They're the first team to take a chance on me," Campbell said. "That's a great feeling...I just need to keep working hard to get where I need to be. My family's very excited about it. People were always expecting me to go to LSU because it's the home school."
Campbell's the fourth LSU commit for the 2016 class and first offensive lineman. He joins QB Feleipe Franks, WR Stephen Sullivan and WR Dee Anderson in the 2016 class. Campbell does not yet have a Scout ranking.
