Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College’s connection to LSU is alive and well.

Former Tigers defensive end Isaiah Washington tweeted Tuesday that he plans to transfer to MGCCC. He’s the latest ex-LSU player to land there this offseason, joining defensive back Saivion Smith.

“Glad to announce I’m starting a new journey of my life. Mississippi Gulf Coast is the next step!” he tweeted.

Washington announced his decision to transfer from LSU on July 20.

“Coach O best coach in America thank you for the chance to play in Tiger Stadium!” his announcement read in part.

The 6-foot-4, 236-pound Washington was set to be a third-year sophomore in Baton Rouge.

As a freshman, Washington had three tackles and a forced fumble in six games. Washington missed all of last season after rupturing an ACL during preseason practice but went through most of spring drills with the Tigers.

A product of Karr High School, Washington was considered a four-star recruit by Rivals and a three-star prospect by ESPN, 247Sports and Scout.
