Plaquemine High School defensive lineman Davon Godchaux said he received a scholarship offer from Alabama on Saturday.

The 6-foot-4, 265-pound senior-to-be got the offer while he was in Tuscaloosa, Ala.

“It was during (their summer) camp,” Godchaux said. “In fact, it was right in the middle of it. I was excited.”

It was the 26th scholarship offer Godchaux has received. Florida, Ole Miss, Texas A&M and Mississippi State are among the other Southeastern Conference schools to extend offers to Godchaux thus far. He is scheduled to attend a camp at LSU in July.

Godchaux later sent out photos of himself with Alabama coach Nick Saban from his phone.

As a junior Godchaux, earned All-Metro and Class 4A All-State honors after compiling 60 tackles (16 for losses) and 9.5 sacks.
