Signee 101: Get to know 4-star DL Davin Cotton

Davin Cotton is the top-ranked defensive lineman in Louisiana in the Class of 2018. He committed to LSU and coach Ed Orgeron back on Feb. 18, alongside his Evangel Academy teammates Micah Baskerville (4-star linebacker) and Ar’Darius Washington (3-star defensive back), during the team’s Boys From The Boot recruiting function. He is fully expected to sign during the early signing period.

The 6-foot-2, 260-pound Cotton is a top-300 prospect nationally and a top-25 defensive tackle in the class, but is projected to play the 5-technique in LSU’s three-man front. Cotton is an explosive pass rusher and excelled in that role in high school, which should set the stage for a rather smooth transition at LSU. Of course, Cotton’s injury may lead him to limited participation in 2018.
