"I'm just trying to take everything in," Washington said. "I wasn't expecting this one. I spoke with Coach (Tim) Horton (Hogs recruiting coordinator). I talked with the recruiter who covers my area, and he told me they want me to be a part of their program. I still wasn't expecting them to offer me, and then he said, 'you have an offer from us.'"
Washington talked about this top four.
"On Friday I'm going to Naples, Florida, with my trainer, Eric Franklin. I'm going to get my All-American status with Junior Rank. I heard they're going to have me speak at the event."
Washington's size and athleticism make him a versatile and valuable big target at either WR or TE. He likes to block, too.
"I heard Arkansas uses their tight ends a lot," Washington said. "That's good. They want me to go out and play wide receiver and tight end."
Washington got his LSU offer on Tuesday after a nice camp showing with the Tigers. He went to visit Texas A&M with his dad, and the Aggies offered at that time.
A&M reportedly likes Washington more as a WR than TE, and he can certainly play both. He has good wheels - and hands that smother the football. On Saturday, Alabama offered Washington during a trip to Tuscaloosa with his dad.
The Westlake Rams, located in southwest Louisiana near Lake Charles, sent another star TE (David LaFleur) to LSU (during the 1990s).
