LSU football is one of the top threats to land an elite four-star wide receiver from Texas.

LSU football isn’t the favorite to land 2021 four-star wide receiver Quaydarius Davis.

According to Rivals, the Texas Longhorns are the team to beat for Davis, but the Tigers aren’t far behind.

Rivals recruiting analyst Sam Spiegelman recently listed LSU as the second biggest threat to land Davis, right behind Texas.

Davis, 6-foot/193 lbs from Dallas, TX, is rated in 247Sports’ composite rankings as the No. 17 player in the state of Texas and the No. 17 wide receiver in the nation.

The Dallas native was previously committed to SMU and Texas (Davis decommitted from Texas last November). Davis visited LSU for the Tigers’ win against Texas A&M last season. He also visited Baton Rouge for a junior day in December.

Spiegelman noted that Davis often wears purple LSU receiver gloves at camps, so it’s clear the Tigers are often on his mind (though that doesn’t necessarily mean he’s LSU bound).

It’s easy to see why LSU, along with Texas and other programs, is interested in Davis.

247Sports midlands region recruit analyst Gabe Brooks says Davis is a “big-play receiver with physical nature and competitive fire”. Brooks also says Davis “plays with intensity and flashes impressive body awareness to adjust to the ball”.

Davis was reportedly hoping to commit by the end of spring, but the recruiting shutdown (due to the coronavirus outbreak) will likely alter those plans.
