Arkansas offers Washington

Jacory Washington

Four SEC programs have extended offers to '14 TE/WR Jacory Washington from Westlake (La.) HS. The Arkansas Razorbacks jumped on board this evening (Tuesday) with the most recent offer. LSU, Alabama and Texas A&M were the first three programs from the Southeastern Conference to get in the game with Washington.

Today's offer from Arkansas came as a surprise to Jacory Washington.

"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.

"LSU, UL (Ragin' Cajuns), Alabama and Texas A&M are my top schools (in random order)," Washington (6-5, 220) said. "I'm going to wait it out awhile before making a decision.

"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). Recommended Stories
