Jackson McGohan is going to be an LSU Tiger.

The standout senior tight end from Miamisburg announced Tuesday afternoon he is headed to the South to play for head coach Brian Kelly next season.

The 6-5, 220-pound McGohan was fourth in the GWOC with 941 receiving yards this season. He caught 11 touchdown passes and ran for another score.

He committed to UC in January but continued to receive scholarship offers, including from Oklahoma, Iowa and Miami (Fla.) in May.

Auburn and LSU offered last month according to 247Sports.com, and McGohan visited LSU last weekend.

Cincinnati has lost 10 verbal commits since Fickell’s departure, including Badin star Braedyn Moore, who announced yesterday he will be a Badger instead of a Bearcat.

McGohan is the No. 25 tight end prospect in the country per 247Sports Composite rankings and the 16th-rated prospect in Ohio.

A pair of his teammates are also three-star recruits in the class of 2023: Running back Christian Davis, who has committed to Ball State, and offensive lineman A.J. Salley, another former UC commit who is now committed to Campbell.

McGohan and Moore are among more than a dozen players from local high schools from the class of 2023 who have committed to Power 5 schools.

Offensive lineman Josh Padilla of Wayne, defensive back Malik Hartford of Lakota West and offensive lineman Austin Siereveld of Lakota East are going to Ohio State.

Springfield receiver Anthony Brown is going to Kentucky while Northwestern has pledged from Northmont defensive back Nigel Glover and Lakota West defensive back Joshua Fussell and Fairfield brothers Jordan and Josiah Jackson are going to West Virginia.

Lakota West DB/receiver Ben Minich is committed to Notre Dame, and Wayne offensive lineman Evan Tengesdahl has remained pledged to Cincinnati, which begins play in the Big 12 next season.
