Raesjon Davis is back on the market.

LSU's third-highest-ranked commit in the 2021 class, Davis announced on Monday afternoon that he has decommitted from the Tigers and reopened his recruitment.

Davis, the No. 45 overall player and No. 4 outside linebacker recruit in the 2021 class, had been committed to LSU since New Year's Day and had been an integral part of the Tigers' No. 3-ranked overall class in the 2021 cycle.

With Davis reopening his recruitment, Ohio State and USC are the two other most likely landing spots for California's No. 3 player out of powerhouse Mater Dei High School.

Davis has visited Ohio State twice, most recently in March prior to the prolonged dead period currently in place.

He told Eleven Warriors two weeks ago that he was planning on sticking with his LSU commitment, but he followed up by telling us that he was not going to sign with the Tigers during the early signing period. He followed through with that, keeping his recruitment open with plans on signing during the Feb. 3 National Signing Day.

“I have a lot of interest because of my relationship with Coach (Al) Washington,” Davis told Eleven Warriors in the summer. “(Washington’s) a super cool dude. I enjoy talking to him, and even Coach (Corey) Dennis. He always says something funny. … He’s a funny dude. I talk to him, Coach Washington and Coach (Ryan) Day the most.”

Behind five-star defensive end J.T. Tuimoloau, Davis is the Buckeyes' highest-remaining priority recruit in the 2021 class that currently sits ranked No. 2 behind Alabama. Landing commitments from both would give the Buckeyes their highest-ranked class of all-time with 320.62 points and would edge Alabama for the recruiting crown the Crimson Tide – which currently has 319.23 points – does not land any more commitments.
