RB Robert Washington Profile
Clemson continues to evaluate the rising junior from South Lake Christian Academy in Huntersville, North Carolina.
Last week, he was in Tigertown for the Dabo Swinney Football Camp.
"It was great. I had a fun time. It's different from other camps. They don't do a 40, like other colleges do. It's more of a camp, more 1-on-1 time with the coaches. I had a great time," Washington said, during an interview with CUTigers.
"Coach [Tony] Elliott said I performed great. Coach [Danny] Pearman said I performed great. There should be an offer coming in the near future. They said, after camp, when they evaluate everybody."
Washington has plenty of interest in Clemson.
"They're really close actually, it's about a 2-hour drive, maybe, hour and 45 [minutes]," he said. "They're a good school. I love the way they use their running backs. They use the zone, which I run at my high school. They run the zone, power and sweep. I love the running backs' versatility, so that's what I like about Clemson so much."
Washington first visited Clemson as a freshman and again last fall for the Boston College game. About two weeks before last Monday's camp visit, he was in town on an unofficial visit.
His game day experience in Tigertown was a memorable one.
"The most electric atmosphere I have ever been to. I'd been hearing a lot about Clemson before I came down to visit. ‘It's the best place to play college football.' I can see why now…I've never seen so much orange in my life," Washington said. "It's a great experience."
The No. 10 ranked running back in the class of 2016 is still looking at all of his options.
"At this point right now, I'm setting up to do my top 15 in August and that's why I'm really pushing Clemson, why I went on so many visits, because I want them to be in my top 15 when they offer, so that's why I'm pushing for them," Washington said.
From there, the list will move to five. Then, sometime during the spring or summer in 2015, Washington will make a commitment.
As a sophomore, he rushed for 2,512 yards with 28 touchdowns on 219 carries. He also caught 12 passes for 250 yards.
