Former LSU wide receiver Drake Davis is enrolled at Southern University, although he has no current association with the football team, Southern coach Dawson Odums confirmed Tuesday.
Odums indicated Davis’ status could change after the fall semester. Davis was dismissed from the LSU program before the 2018 season after the beginning of a string of arrests for domestic violence and child pornography.
“We’ll see how it goes and evaluate it further in the spring," Odums said.
