Washington Picks ACC School

It's all over for small forward Deron Washington. The National Christian Academy standout is headed to the ACC.

Deron Washington, a 6-7 small forward out of Alexandria (VA) National Christian, committed to Virginia Tech on Monday.

In the end, Washington selected the Hokies over Charlotte. Miami offered late and both Providence and Mississippi tried to get in late as well. "He didn't want to get involved with schools that were coming in late because they had a chance to see him early," National Christian coach Trevor Brown said.

The Hokies meanwhile, had worked Washington hard throughout the process. "Seth said that he's got a chance to come in and play a lot of minutes as a freshman and Seth said he's going to feature those guys. Basketball-wise, he just wants to play against the best competition."

Washington was a standout on the AAU circuit with D.C.'s Assault.
