A fourteenth player has been identified as making an official visit this weekend to Pitt.
2023 3-star tight end Jackson McGohan tells Pittsburgh Sports Now that he’ll be in Pittsburgh for an official visit. This is interesting because McGohan is currently committed to the Cincinnati Bearcats.
Both sides have shown interest in each other over the past year. Back in October, the native of Miamisburg, Ohio made an unofficial visit to Pitt for the Clemson game. Following that, defensive coordinator and area recruiter Randy Bates traveled to Ohio to watch McGohan play in a basketball game and that was followed up by Bates and Pat Narduzzi visiting him at his high school and extending him an offer.
There’s obvious interest from both sides so McGohan wants to make another visit to learn more about the ACC Champions.

“I have a great relationship with Coach Bates, Coach Salem and Coach Narduzzi. They have just been great in the recruiting process,” said McGohan. “They are just very genuine and good people. They were frequently in and out of my school during the winter and spring and have expressed high interest in wanting me. They also talk to my family on a regular basis and that to me means a lot. I love that there a family feel at Pitt. I am going to enjoy this weekend and I look forward to it. I want to learn more about the city of Pittsburgh and the school as well academically and culturally. I want to connect with a lot of the players and get there inside opinion about Pitt. Lastly, I want to connect with some more coaches and build a relationship with them.”
McGohan tells PSN that following this trip, he has official visits scheduled with both Cincinnati and Kentucky.
Along with Pitt, McGohan holds an offer list of Cincinnati, Boston College, UConn, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Iowa State, Kentucky, Miami FL, Oklahoma, Purdue and Toledo.
This past season, McGohan caught 47 passes for 700 yards and 10 touchdowns in nine games. Although he believes he can block from the line of scrimmage, he considers himself more accomplished as a receiving target.
