Chaisson worked in early as a rotational player at LSU, starting three games in 2017 while finishing with 27 tackles (4.5 for loss), two sacks and two passes defensed. His 2018 campaign was lost after one game due to a torn ACL, but Chaisson came back strong with an impressive redshirt sophomore season, in which he collected 60 tackles (13.5 for loss), 6.5 sacks and two passes defensed. Two of those sacks came in the CFP semifinal against Oklahoma.

Chaisson did not work out at the NFL Scouting Combine, planning to do so at LSU’s pro day before it was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
