More praise for the Louisiana guys at Houston & Dallas camps

  • Garrald McDowell, Davon Godchaux, Gerald Willis

    Covington (La.) High defensive tackle Garrald McDowell was an unranked player entering the camp, but Howell said the 6-foot-3, 250-pound player was impressive.

    "I thought McDowell really stood out in the reps I saw of him," Howell said. "He had solid technique and was a player who came to Houston looking to make an impression and did just that."

    McDowell has offers from Alabama, Arkansas, Kansas State and Ole Miss. Howell named him the No. 8 overall defensive player at the camp in his evaluations.

    Possibly the player who shined the brightest on the weekend was Davon Godchaux of Plaquemine (La.) High.

    Godchaux came into the weekend as the No. 208 player in the Rivals250 but took home the Defensive Line MVP award -- besting Gerald Willis III in the process -- and earned an invitation to the Rivals Five-Star Challenge in June.

    The 6-foot-4, 245-pound strongside defensive end used his speed much of the afternoon to attack players.

    "(The coaches) were going on one a lot, so I started getting off even faster," Godchaux said. "If I jumped the count, it was OK because then I got to see the other guy's go-to move and I could set him up for the next snap."

    A four-star prospect, Godchaux said that getting an invitation to the series-ending event was his goal for the day and that he wanted to size himself up against the best from other spots in the country.

    "I don't know if Da'Shawn Hand or Andrew Brown is better than me," he said. "I want to see them up close and see what they have and what I have."

    Howell said he takes his time to look for players with complete games.

    One such player who showed a lot of versatility was Willis, the New Orleans (La.) Edna Karr defensive end.

    The No. 42 player in the Rivals100 figured to be one of the players whom people wanted to line up against. He routinely dispatched with those who challenged him.

    Howell took notice of how he did it.

    "Gerald isn't a speed guy," Howell said. "He doesn't use a get-off as much as a lot of other guys at his position, but he was very strong. He was able to beat guys with a lot of different techniques, and even when he slid down he could make plays.

    "I think he won most all of his reps. I know a lot of offensive lineman wanted to go against him and not many fared very well."
