Boston College, Mississippi State, Syracuse and Wake Forest are included on that list. On Monday, he camped at Clemson.

"It was pretty good. I liked the coaching and the way they took their time out to teach you and go over everything. I did pretty well. I had one ball caught on me. It was like a screen they did in 1-on-1s, but I learned a lot today," Washington told CUTigers later that night.

Washington has visited the Clemson campus three times, including a May trip with his cousin, Robert Washington, who also worked out on Monday.

"I think it lives up to the name. Everybody, they think about Clemson and they think about a great school," Aapari said. "When I got down there, I got a chance to realize why people stress that. The education is great. That's a key for me."

The coaches have been consistent with their message.

"It's no change in the coaches. You get the same every time. It's the same atmosphere every time," he said. "They're not putting on a show. They're straight-forward and it's just great. It's Clemson."

Washington, who checks in at 5-9, 160, is waiting to hear back from Clemson about a potential offer.

"Coach [Danny] Pearman, I think he's trying to get the DB coach my film, but he does have my film, so I think he was going to show the DB coach my film or bring it up in the next defensive meeting," Washington said.

Later this summer, he'll camp at UNC and N.C. State. Penn State and Ohio State are also on the camp visit docket.

As a freshman, Washington accumulated 1,410 all-purpose yards. He also had 52 tackles and six interceptions.
