From the road: DE Godchaux's long route

BATON ROUGE, La. -- Getting from the the petro-chemical industry town of Plaquemine, La., to LSU is easy.

A quick jog south on La.-1 through Brusly to the foot of the Mississippi River Bridge on Interstate 10, then across to the Highland Road exit takes you to the doorstep of LSU's campus in about half an hour.

Or, for a more charming path, one might take the Plaquemine Ferry from downtown Plaquemine across Old Man River to the rural area just south of Baton Rouge. From there, one can can drive alongside the levee, then up Nicholson Road right to Tiger Stadium, also in about half an hour.

That would seem like a simple path for ESPN 300 defensive end Davon Godchaux (Plaquemine HS) to take to LSU.

But his road has been longer and, at this point, still a bit uncertain.
