McGehee's Washington Makes Some Decisions

Michael Washington still has a host of schools on his radar and will take an unofficial visit to one of those on Thursday.

After making the decision to stay home instead of heading to North Carolina, McGehee's Micheal Washington is going to take a day trip to Oklahoma.

The 6-9, 219-pound forward and 2005 prospect will take an unofficial visit to visit Norman on Thursday and see what the Sooners are all about.

"My high school coach is going up there and they ask me to come along and check it out," Washington said. "I think we are going up Thursday and coming back Thursday."

Washington, a player that Arkansas is recruiting, had contemplated going to Mount Zion Christian Academy in Durham, N.C. and being reclassified as a junior.

"I never did go down there, just decided I wanted to stay here," said Washington, who was ranked as one of the top 15 prospects at Nike by one recruiting service.

Washington, who is no longer playing football for his high school after having the honor as the tallest safety and wideout in the state, will hope to improve his current grade standing and be eligible next season to play college ball.

If not, then he might head to a prep school or junior college.

"I think I am going to wait until the late period to sign," Washington said. "We'll just see how goes."

Washington, who plans to visit Fayetteville sometime this fall, continues to hear from Arkansas and a host of other colleges.

"There's Arkansas, Arkansas State, Georgia, Florida, Kansas, Kansas State, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State," Washington said. "There's just a lot of them."
