2021 four-star linebacker Raesjon Davis made a big promise to LSU football fans.

Four-star linebacker Raesjon Davis has been committed to LSU football since January 1.

The California native is solid to the Tigers, despite his desire to take visits to other programs (whenever that’s eventually allowed by the NCAA, which has mandated a recruiting dead period through at least July 31).

“I plan on taking a few visits but just really to get the experience. I’m really fully committed to LSU,” said Davis recently to Rivals.

I don’t blame Davis for wanting to take additional visits. Recruits only get one chance to enjoy the recruiting experience. Why not enjoy this time to its fullest?

Plus there could be a benefit for the Tigers. It’s certainly possible that Davis connects with other recruits that LSU is pursuing while he’s on visits to other programs.

And recruiting other players is something that Davis is doing a lot of these days.

“I’m trying to be recruiter of the year for 2021. I’m trying to get everybody I can to come help us win,” said Davis to Rivals.

A big promise for the future of LSU football

It’s one thing to win a championship as LSU did in 2019. It’s another thing to continue that type of success.

We’ve seen several programs over the last decade have an incredible season, only to fade away in the years after. Auburn in 2010 and Florida State in 2013 come to mind. Neither of those programs were able to sustain championship-level success.

Davis, however, doesn’t want that to be the case in Baton Rouge.

Which is why he made a big promise to LSU fans this week.

“I’m going to make sure we win a National Championship in my next few years. That’s the main thing I want them to know,” proclaimed Davis in an interview with Rivals.

It’s clear that Ed Orgeron and his staff are recruiting players with a championship mindset.

Elite recruits want to get to the NFL. That’s typically the ultimate goal.

But the Tigers are making sure they bring in elite players who also have a national championship win on their checklist.

The way things are going for the Tigers right now, I don’t see any way the program goes the way of 2010 Auburn or 2013 Florida State.
