Don’t count LSU out of the K’Lavon Chaisson sweepstakes just yet.
Chaisson, a 4-star DE/OLB from Houston, will officially visit LSU on Jan. 13, according to ESPN’s Gerry Hamilton.
The 6-foot-4, 211-pound Under Armour All-American edge-rusher will visit Baton Rouge, as well as Oregon (Jan. 17), Texas (Jan. 20), Colorado (Jan. 23) and Southern Cal (Jan. 27) in what will be a very busy January.
Chaisson has long been a priority for LSU, especially as defensive coordinator Dave Aranda looks to find a successor to Arden Key at the BUCK position after next season.
The North Shore (Texas) High product has visited LSU more than any other campus in the country, but the Tigers ranked third behind Oklahoma and Houston when Chaisson released his top-10 schools over the summer. With Houston coach Tom Herman now at Texas, the Longhorns have emerged as the biggest threat to LSU’s chances of landing the talented edge-rusher.
LSU will be Chaisson’s first official visit, which is always an encouraging note. Expect Aranda and Ed Orgeron to push Chaisson very hard for a commitment during the visit.
