On Wednesday, National Signing Day, high school football players from around the Tri-State signed on to play college ball in 2021.
Roger Bacon star running back Corey Kiner, recently named Ohio’s Mr. Football, signed on to play at Louisiana State University (LSU) on Wednesday.
"This is a very special day, watching my dreams come true and doing it with my family," Kiner told WCPO Wednesday.
La Salle High School had four defensive backs sign with Division I schools. Davota Smith is Alabama-bound; Jalen Johnson is heading to Ohio State; Iesa Jarmon signed to play for Cincinnati; Jaymar Mundy signed to Miami (Ohio).

“In 5th grade ... I used to write my signature throughout the day.”
“My signature is the best thing ever. I don’t need to practice.”
“I just give it a little scribble.”
"It was humbling, you know?" cornerback Smith said. "It was a dream come true, really, dreams to reality."
"To see all my guys do it with me that I've grown up with playing football with, it was definitely something special," cornerback Jarmon said.
