Davenport talks academics

When it comes to big fish from the 2009 recruiting class, Chris Davenport might have been the biggest. After he battled through a torn meniscus last fall, the LSU commitment hit the books in hopes of becoming fully qualified by the end of his senior year. With summer hitting Mansfield High, where does the big man stand?

Unlike many of the nation’s highly touted high school football prospects, Chris Davenport did not want to make his recruitment a spectacle.

Last July, the Pelican State standout made his college decision public.

“I had always wanted to go to LSU, so the decision was nothing to drag out for other schools,” Davenport said.

The senior spent the next seven months recruiting high and low for the Tigers.

The nation’s No. 7 ranked defensive tackle said that while the recruitment trail can be rough, his confidence in the Tiger program’s ability to land the other big fish was high.

For instance, while the LSU faithful were on edge as they awaited the decision of fellow in-state prospect Rueben Randle, Davenport remained calm.

“I always knew that Rueben was coming to LSU,” he said with a laugh. “Everyone was so worried about things, but he is a Louisiana boy, and other Louisiana boys know how each other think.

Chris Faulk and I were rooming together at the Army game in January, and [Barkevious] Mingo and Randle were next door,” he added. “We all got together and had the feeling that he would make the right decision. He is a good guy, so the thing to do is stay in state and help this program out.”

With questions rising on the academic front, will Davenport be able to lend a hand this fall?

“I am ready to go, because I turned on my book work and took the last six months really seriously,” he said. “I worked hard when coach [Les] Miles told me that I could be a Tiger, and now it is really going to pay off.”

Davenport focused on his academics more than ever the back half of his senior year and he made big strides in the classroom to close out his high school career. After making four B's and an A on his final report card, he finished with a 2.625 core grade point average. According to the NCAA sliding scale he would need to have a minimum of 63 composite points on the ACT to be a full academic qualifier and his 64 points will be just enough to get him through the NCAA Clearinghouse, barring any unforeseen complications.

Wolverines head coach Donald Mayweather has been alongside his star defensive tackle throughout his recruitment, seeing him go from high school boy to college man, on and off the gridiron.

“Chris grew up in a big way because of what LSU has offered him,” he said. “We could not be more proud of what he has been able to do during his time here, and he left a real lasting impression on the other kids in this program.”

“Chris is going up to Shreveport to work with his own private guy, and he looks like he is in the best shape of his life,” Mayweather added. “You can see the difference with the program that [LSU strength] coach [Tommy] Moffitt has him on. If I could guess, I would bet he has lost about 30 pounds.”

According to Davenport, his headman would lose money if he made that bet.

“I have actually dropped about 45 pounds,” he said. “I am down from 340 to around 295. The weight off my knee is amazing. I go by coach Moffitt’s book, and my knees have healed right up. I am faster than ever, so the coaches are going to be happy with me.”

Taking in a conversation with LSU head coach Les Miles last weekend, Davenport said that the next step is the big move.

“I am leaving June 1, so the time is getting close,” he said. “Coach Miles said we should find out our room assignments in the next couple of days. I am pretty sure that Chris [Faulk] and I are going to be with Mingo and [Dominique] Allen, though.

“It is going to be a real good time up in there, believe that.”

Back in Mansfield, Mayweather said that Davenport would surely be missed.

“Chris is one of those people that can set an example with anything he does,” he said. “Kids around here are more outgoing and learn how to present themselves better to other people because of things they have learned from Chris, so he will be missed.”

As for expectations, Mayweather said that the hometown crowd is rooting for the Wolverine standout to hit the field next fall.

“He has worked hard, so we want him to get some playing time,” he laughed. “In reality, we just want him to work his butt off. He retook a lot of classes from his freshman year that he did not take seriously, and the last six months are proof of what will carry him over to become successful at the next level.”

Davenport, who joins Leesville’s Michael Ford and Bastrop’s Randle as five-star LSU commitments for 2009, said that staying home in purple and gold is something that he has been waiting to do all his life.

“Staying home is big not just for me, but guys like Randle and Ford as well,” he said. “It lets the people of Louisiana and fans of LSU football know that the program is doing something right to be able to keep big prospects like us at home.

“We had a lot of other doors open for us to play in other states, but we made a decision to stay here together because we wanted people to know that Louisiana is near and dear to our hearts.”
