Godchaux Has Visits Planned

The nation's #17-ranked defensive end, Davon Godchaux, knows the clock is ticking and that he has to get serious about the recruiting process. He has already attended one game, he will be on an SEC campus this weekend, and he has started scheduling official visits...

The recruiting process is starting to really get going for four-star defensive lineman Davon Godchaux.

He has already taken in a game at LSU this season, he is set to visit another SEC school this weekend, he has scheduled his first official visit, and he is excited to part of this process.

"Things are really going well and it is all picking up," Godchaux said. "I know things are getting serious now, so I am keeping my eyes open."

Godchaux already took in a game in Baton Rouge and LSU is going to be tough to beat in the end.

"I was at LSU for the UAB game and the atmosphere there is always good. I had a good time, the coaches talked to me, and it was like a normal visit there.

"LSU is a great school, I grew up here in Louisiana watching them play, and they are the school everyone else has to beat. It may be difficult, but not impossible.

"I will take my visits, look around, and give schools a chance for sure."

One school will get a chance this weekend. It will be an unofficial visit, but he will have his open to see what is there.

"I am going to Texas A&M for the Alabama game this weekend. This will be my first visit to A&M, so I am excited about it. I want to check out the atmosphere, see what it is like there, and I know it will be packed and live."

The Aggies are one of the schools that will try to challenge LSU for the Scout 300 prospect out of Plaquemine, La.

Alabama, Florida, Florida State, Miami, Ole Miss, and UCLA are the other schools Godchaux named as contenders.

He plans to take all five official visits and he knows three schools that will get visits and one has already been scheduled.

"I am set to take my official visit to Florida on November 30 and that is my only visit set right now. I have been in touch with Coach [Brad] Lawing (Defensive line) a lot and Florida will be out to see me play this Friday. I like the environment there, the coaches are great, and they have really good facilities too.

"Other than Florida, I know I will visit Miami and UCLA officially too. I have not decided who will get the last two yet."

As of today, the 6-foot-4, 271 pound senior is planning to make his decision on December 28. That could change, but that Godchaux feels good about that date.

"That is still the plan. I think it will happen, but it could change. I am trying to get my visits in and make sure I am ready," said Godchaux.

"I want to make sure of things and make sure of my decision. These visits will be important."

Godchaux is ranked as the No. 17 defensive end in the country. He also could play defensive tackle on the next level.
