Along with Butler, Washington also held offers from schools like George Washington, Xavier, Wake Forest, Georgia Tech, and Miami. At 6-foot-2, Washington brings good size to the point guard position. As a key member of the Albany City Rocks in the EYBL, Washington averaged 10.1 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 3.2 assists while shooting an impressive 40 percent from three point range. Washington feels that his style of play fits in well with what the Butler Bulldogs do on the court. "It is a pick and roll offense which I like a lot," said Washington. "They give their guards freedom to pass or shoot of the ball screen and I think that is what I do best, so I think I will fit in really well with what they do." This is the second commitment for the Bulldogs in the class. Washington joins four-star center Joey Brunk who committed to the local school at the beginning of the month.
Washington makes his pick
The Butler Bulldogs got more good news on Sunday as point guard Howard Washington jumped into the fold. The No. 26 rated point guard made his official visit to the school over the weekend and on Tuesday he announced his commitment. "I am committed to Butler," said Washington. "I have a great opportunity to play there. They only have one point guard and one shooting guard on the roster." He continued, "They will give me a great opportunity to play and develop, and hopefully reach my goal of making it to the NBA."
