While he's yet to have a chance to learn about the new look Blue Devils, Washington has grown quite familiar with Blue Devil Associate Head Coach David Kelly, who's also in charge of the wide receivers. In fact Washington has spoken with the Duke coach "many times", and credits him with the desire to take a Thursday visit.
"Coach Kelly convinced me to come down here on a fact finding mission," said Washington. "I liked that."
At 6-foot-2 and 185 pounds, you'd think that Washington is just another big receiver, but you should probably make that "big time" when describing the Indiana native on account of his 39-inch vertical jump, 4.5 forty time, and ability to log a near 25-foot long jump on the track.
"I scratched the time I hit 25 feet," said Washington. "My best so far this year has been a 23'4", but I hope to do better this week."
As a junior Donald recorded 47 catches for 800 yards and eight touchdowns, which prompted offers from Duke, Stanford, E. Michigan and Miami of Ohio. He's also getting interest from Purdue, Indiana, Notre Dame, Michigan, Florida, Southern Illinois and Toledo.
Off the field he sports an impressive 3.3 grade point average, but has yet to take a standardized test.
