Donavaughn Campbell is the only offensive guard commit in LSU’s 2016 recruiting class, so naturally, his relationship with the Tigers holds plenty of importance.
After officially visiting LSU this weekend, the Ponchatoula (La.) High School product had nothing but positive takeaways about his time on campus.
“It was great,” the four-star prospect told SEC Country. “I loved everything.”
The 6-foot-4, 347-pounder was hosted by redshirt freshman William Clapp, who hails from New Orleans and was an impact player for LSU this past season.
“He (Clapp) introduced me to a lot of guys on the team,” Campbell said. “We had a good time.”
Defensive line coach Ed Orgeron and offensive line coach Jeff Grimes spent the most time with Campbell. Both relayed an important message about his chances of earning early playing time next season.
“If I come in in shape, I have a chance to start as a true freshman,” Campbell said. “It went great.”
Campbell is rated as the nation’s No. 5 offensive guard.
Next weekend, he is scheduled to officially visit Alabama. Campbell will make his third official visit on Jan. 29 to Georgia Tech, where his older brother Christian is a quarterback.
“I’m still committed,” Campbell said. “I feel like it’s still a good fit for me.”
