ESPNU DE loves trip to Lincoln


ESPNU 150 defensive end Toshiro Davis (Shreveport, La./Woodlawn) got more than he anticipated on his official visit to see the Cornhuskers. In fact, he was blown away.

“It was way better than I expected,” Davis said. “The facilities and the coaches were the best part. The players were cool. I couldn’t believe some of the things I saw, especially their facilities. I didn’t expect the visit to be that good. It was eye-opening and gave me something to think about.”

Davis, who has been a longtime commitment to the top-ranked Tigers says he’s still committed to LSU. But he’s taking a few trips just to make sure. Last week he made an official visit to Texas.

“Yeah, last week I went to Texas and it was really cool,” Davis said. “My mom and I really liked it. We had a great time. They have nice facilities and the coaches are really cool. We got to spend a lot of time with Mack Brown and I know they need some defensive line help.

"It’s Texas and they have everything.”

Davis, 6-foot-3 and 220 pounds, says he will now make his official visit to LSU (Jan. 6) next month. He’s ranked the No. 8 defensive end in the nation, No. 70 overall in the ESPNU 150 and the No. 2 player from the state of Louisiana.
