Is LSU close to locking up a commitment from Alabama linebacker Deshaun Davis? This weekend, the staff will host the Mobile standout on an unofficial visit.

Glad to hear Thornton and parents are coming, too. He is a stud. I know he really likes Florida but maybe a visit with his teammate will pull us even.
I can only recall LSU signing 4 Mobile guys in the last 25 years....Jamarcus, Chevis Jackson, Sidell Corley, and Phelon Jones. Before that I think the last player we got from that area was Anthony Marshall in the late 80's. For some reason, Mobile just has not been an area that LSU has targeted much historically. Same can be said for Memphis. Good to see us making inroads into both areas because they are fertile recruiting grounds.
Thanks, great article Shea. This year is going to get crazy.
Here's what he says about Clemson, which offered last night: http://clemson.247sports.com/Article/New-LB-offer-interested-in-Clemson-Football-ACC-Recruiting-122390

It doesn't matter if the talent overall is the same. When a kid is good and fits your system you go hard for him.
Here's a story I found five days ago.
Davis already has offers from Florida State, South Carolina and Tennessee, among others
