Washington is coming off of an impressive sophomore campaign for the Huskies. He finished the 2021 season with 1,605 rushing yards and 23 rushing touchdowns. The 2024 prospect also compiled 129 receiving yards and one receiving touchdown.
Washington’s play last season earned him an offer from UAB. The Blazers’ offer is currently Washington’s only offer, but that could change in the future with Alabama being among the programs showing interest in the running back.
Alabama’s coaching staff told Washington they had their eyes on him at the conclusion of his latest visit to Tuscaloosa. The Helena product told Touchdown Alabama he feels it would be an honor to earn an opportunity to play for Alabama football
“It is a great program from top to bottom,” Washington said. “After being there and going through their facilities and listening to all the people talk about how much they want to see you succeed on and off the field, just seeing the process they go through to help you and the time they put in with you is pretty cool. As far as playing there, it is an honor to even be considered. They have not offered me, and I do not know if they will. I am just going to keep working and grinding. We will see what happens.”
The Tide’s Junior Day was filled with top prospects. Each of them got an opportunity to tour Alabama’s player facilities and learn about their strength & conditioning program.
“I like how detailed they were about everything from the weight room to the training room down to the nutrition,” said Washington. “I see why they win and put out a lot of great players.”
Former Alabama wide receiver, Mike McCoy is currently training Washington to have an even better season next year. Washington knows a few areas he was to get better in.
“I want to improve at blocking, my one on one agility moves and seeing my lanes better,” said Washington.
