Washington attends Venice High School in Venice, Florida, and he is rated as a four-star recruit. He was the first 2023 prospect to commit to Alabama. The Florida product’s de-commitment leaves the Crimson Tide with ten 2023 commits and multiple defensive back pledges in Tony Mitchell, Jahil Hurley and Brayson Hubbard.
The former Alabama commit thanked Alabama football’s staff during his commitment announcement.
“I would like to thank the University of Alabama, coach Saban, coach Gillespie and Coach T Rob for your time and effort during my recruitment,” Washington wrote. “After exploring all options throughout my recruitment process, I will be de-committing from the University of Alabama. After further consideration with my family, I will be committing to the Pennsylvania State University.”
