North Dakota State linebacker Jabril Cox will play for LSU next season as a graduate transfer.

“Here we Geaux!!” he tweeted on Thursday, along with an image of himself in a Tigers uniform.

The 6-foot-3, 229-pound Cox, who won three straight Football Championship Subdivision national championships with the Bisons, joins the defending Football Bowl Subdivision national champs.

He tallied 92 tackles, 9.5 tackles for loss and 5.5 sacks with one interception in 15 games last season.

Cox made the Associated Press All-America second team in 2018 and third team in 2019, adding Missouri Valley Football Conference Defensive Player of the Year honors in 2018.
