Donavaughn Campbell had LSU fans on the edge of their seats.
However, the nation’s No. 6 offensive guard ultimately decided against flipping.
The Ponchatoula, La., native was deciding between LSU and Georgia Tech, and he stuck with the hometown Tigers, as he draped a white LSU shirt on as he finalized his pledge.
“LSU is somewhere I always saw myself playing,” Campbell said, via Periscope. “We have 18 starters returning and have a chance to be a very good championship team.”
“I’m glad to be a part of the nation’s No. 1 recruiting class,” he added. “I think we can make something happen with that class.”
Campbell, a four-star recruit, committed to LSU in January of 2015 and never really strayed far from that path.
However, the 6-foot-4, 347-pound prospect officially visited Georgia Tech last weekend, where his older brother Christian Campbell was a redshirt freshman quarterback this past season.
On Monday, he announced he would finalize his decision 24 hours before National Signing Day arrived.
Campbell texted his brother early Tuesday morning to inform him that he was sticking with LSU.
“It was good to be out there with my brother,” Campbell said. “It’s always good when he comes around. I barely get to see him now.”
The Campbell brothers will not be reunited in Atlanta, but Donavaughn fills a major need as an interior lineman on LSU’s offensive line.
Campbell is the lone guard embedded in LSU’s 2016 class and the third offensive lineman overall.
