Coach Brian Kelly and the staff delivered, landing two top-150 edge rushers. One of those players — Da’Shawn Womack — was listed among several 2023 signees who could immediately impact Year 1.
Dashawn Womack has a case as the most ready to play EDGE prospect in the class. At 6-foot-4, 250 pounds, Womack is not a projection physically. He registers as a top athlete in the combine setting and carries that athleticism over to the field. Womack was dominant as a senior, tallying 15 sacks while playing a national schedule at Baltimore St. Frances Academy. The LSU signee has some technical refinement with quick hands and pass rush moves. The ability to create pressure off the edge and finish with violence puts him in a good position to fill BJ Ojulari‘s role in LSU’s defense.
Womack ranks as a five-star prospect and checks in at No. 22 overall in the On300.
LSU certainly enters the offseason with a lot of work to do on the defensive line, but they’re off to a great start.
