'09 Quarterback Carroll Washington

'09 Quarterback Carroll Washington

Baltimore, Md., is home to Carroll Washington, a diminutive signal caller with tremendous athleticism that could play a number of positions at the collegiate level, including quarterback in the right system. While Washington is only going into his junior season, we did catch up with him to see who his early interests are.

Statistics can be impressive, but for a quarterback it is often the intangibles that separate the good from the great and with Edmonson-Westside High School signal caller Carroll Washington, those qualities that don't fit in a box score tell part of the story. Last season the 5-foot-11, 170-pounder led his team to a 13-1 record and the Maryland Class AA State Championship and while he may not have great size, he does make up for it with legit 4.4 40-yard dash speed and a 4.15 short shuttle.

"I do have good speed, however I would not say that I am a running quarterback because I am always looking to get the ball downfield first," Washington said. "Right now I would say the schools I am most interested in are Virginia Tech, Maryland, Florida State, West Virginia and Florida because I really grew up following a lot of those programs and like something about each of them."

As for things that you can tab in a box score, Washington completed 58-percent of his passes for 1299 yards and 10 touchdowns to only four interceptions as a sophomore. He also rushed for 300 yards and seven touchdowns and was selected first-team All-City and honorable mention All-State.

With nearly two years left to grow, Washington could end up over the 6-foot barrier making him more attractive to all programs at quarterback, however he obviously has the athleticism to play a number of different positions if that does not work out.
