It took a few more months, but Washington got the elusive first offer, and it came from an in-state powerhouse.
"Chris received his first offer (Saturday) from BYU," said his father, Tony. "The coaching staff said they were very impressed with his efforts and leadership. It was a good day for him."
Washington was named to the all-camp team in Vegas and on Saturday, at a passing tourney at BYU, he played nine games for Northridge, helping them to the finals of the tournament.
He's attended camps at Boise State and Utah State and will be camping at Utah as well. This weekend, we'll see him in action in Southern California at the B2G Elite Football Program in Thousand Oaks.
Washington is a three-star safety and ranked among the best at his position in the West.
