A three-star recruit out of the Jacksonville area (Perry Orth’s neck of the woods), Washington entertained an offer from Kentucky, with Duke kicking the tires. It was South Carolina ultimately gaining his services as he made the call in July 2014 and enrolled in January 2015.
Washington was redshirted thanks to an unfortunate broken leg suffered in practice just days before the team took on North Carolina in Charlotte. Now, with preseason upon us, he has been a part of drills and has been spotted in the first team rotation from time to time.
With WR as thin as it is, don't be surprised to see Washingtin get some time in on the field throughout the season. The Gamecocks hope that he is fully recovered from his leg injury and ready to hit the field.
