Godchaux wants to visit Florida

Will Muschamp has proven he will recruit anywhere in the country as long as he feels he has a chance to land a prospect.

Last week, the Gators ventured into Louisiana to visit Plaquemine (La.) High defensive end Davon Godchaux.

“Coach (Derek) Lewis came by my school last Tuesday,” Godchaux said. “It went great, he talked to my coach and watched me workout. He told my coach that he wants me to come to Florida and to be a Florida Gator. Coach Lewis told my coach that he wanted me to visit either for a camp or for unofficial visit this summer. I should be down there in June for a visit.”

After Lewis visited the 6-foot-4, 270-pound Godchaux, he called Will Muschamp to talk about his upcoming visit.

“When I called coach Muschamp, he said the same thing, that he wants me to be a Gator,” Godchaux  said. “I was telling him that I was going to take unofficial visit to Florida to see the campus and how nice everything was there. I told him that I couldn’t wait to meet him and coach (Brad) Lawing when I get down there.”

For Godchaux, one thing that is drawing interest from him for Florida is defensive line coach Brad Lawing and his history.

“Coach Lawing tells me he wants me to be a defensive end for him,” Godchaux said. “He is a good coach and he coached probably the number one player in the draft next year. It would be good to play for him and I can’t wait to meet him and talk about the game and schemes with him.”

Godchaux says that Florida, Florida State, Oklahoma State and Texas are the ones recruiting him the hardest and he plans to visit Florida, Florida State, USC and Texas this summer.
