Defensive End/Defensive Tackle prospect Davon Godchaux officially signed his letter of intent to play for LSU.
Godchaux (6'4", 265) is a jumbo defensive end that will likely slide inside in the LSU defense. He is ranked as the the #173 prospect nationally and #10 strong-side defensive end of the 2014 class. Godchaux, unfortunately, tore his ACL during the first game of his Senior season. He verbally pledged to LSU back in September, praising their loyalty for sticking by him despite injury.
Months later, Godchaux elected to take visits, despite maintaining being 100% committed to LSU. After trips to Auburn and UCLA, Godchaux remained firm to LSU. While concerns about his injury loom, he'll likely take a RS at LSU as he adds the necessary bulk to play DT. Godchaux's large frame should easily allow him to pack on 300 good pounds as he transitions to DT. If not for his senior season injury, Godchaux would likely be a top 100 player. He was elected the U.S. Army All-American bowl. While he couldn't participate in practices, he did show up in San Antonio to help recruit for LSU.
