    Won state title in long jump as a sophomore and junior; placed second as a senior.

    A possible "sleeper-athlete" who performed well at the OSU Nike camp, leading all attendees with a 39" verticle jump. His film (as a WR) is decent, but he didn't have many chances to showcase his speed as his QB underthrew him most of the time on fly routes. In one clip, however, he shows great football speed, as he makes the catch over the middle and proceeds to accelerate past no less than four defenders. He also plays DB.

    He claims offers from Stanford and Eastern Michigan, and likes OSU, Michigan, Notre Dame, and several others; academics and distance will be factors in his decision. His high school coach played at Purdue, so the Boilermakers will be a major factor.

    Overall, he is a raw prospect, with lots of athleticism, and just the type who could make huge strides as a senior. One to watch....

    In a new Rivals article, Washington claims the following offers: Stanford, Eastern Michigan, Miami (Ohio),Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, and Duke.

    This weekend, Washington will compete in the long jump at the Adidas Outdoor National Championships in Raleigh, N.C.

    According to a new Rivals article, Washington has renewed interest in Ohio State, which is recruiting him hard right now. The Bucks want to see some senior year game film before offering:

    An indication we will not get Amos, or just having plan B in case we don't?

    Right now, the Bucks' top two WR targets seem to be Andre Amos (OSU in final two with Purdue) and Selwyn Lymon (OSU in top 3 with Purdue and Michigan), and if both of them would commit, then Ohio State would likely be done recruiting WR's this year. Five-star guys like Fred Rouse and Derrick Williams are not realistic possibilities at this point, even though they haven't formally eliminated Ohio State.

    Washington is in the second tier of WR's whom OSU is pursuing, along with Greg Orton, Brian Robiskie, Jessie Hester, Jr., and a few others.

    Washington is somewhat of a "sleeper" - a great athlete (2-time state long jump champ, 39 inch verticle jump, 4.5 speed) with limited experience and production on the football field. With a big senior year, he could be a solid Big 10 prospect.

    His football season is now over (his team didn't make the playoffs). tOSU is still one of his favorites but have not offered.

    DW made the Indy All South team

    A tOSU offer for DW is news if true.
