Al’dontre Davis picked up an offer from LSU in late January.
On Saturday, the three-star wide receiver received attention from all of the Tigers’ coaches after an “awesome” time in Baton Rouge, La.
So, where does LSU stand in his recruitment?
“LSU’s stock is up, and during the recruiting process I’m going to keep an eye on them,” Davis told SEC Country.
“LSU is in the race,” he added.
The battle for the 6-foot, 190-pound prospect out of Lutcher High School (La.) also includes SEC West rivals Ole Miss and Auburn, whom Davis previously told SEC Country had caught his attention.
That was two months ago — before LSU extended an offer his way.
On Saturday, members of the coaching staff, including Les Miles, had their first chance to make a pitch to the highly touted in-state wide receiver.
“(They said) to keep staying focused and to keep grinding,” Davis said. “It was awesome. It was a pleasure, and I’m pushing toward going out there more often and having a good time.”
Davis’ teammate, dual-threat quarterback Jontre Kirklin, pledged to the Tigers shortly after LSU’s “Boys From The Boot” junior camp event this weekend.
However, Davis made it clear that Kirklin’s decision won’t affect his.
“It doesn’t really affect anything,” Davis said. “He’s kin to me and I want him to stay on the right path, but LSU might be the best school for him and some might be best for me, so I’m just going to keep my options open for now.”
Davis is rated as Louisiana’s No. 16 prospect and the No. 53 wide receiver in the nation, per the 247Sports composite ranking.
