Suitors Continue to come for Georgia Commitment
"I still get a lot of mail and some hand written letters, but nothing like it was before I committed to Georgia. Some of the top SEC and ACC schools are still recruiting me, but overall, it has really quieted down," said Washington.
Do any other schools have a chance to turn Washington away from Georgia?
"No sir (Laughing), I am going to Georgia and that is final. When Coach Van Gorder and Coach Fabris came by the school and offered me, I knew it was over. Georgia was my favorite team growing up, and I had dreams of playing there. It was a very easy decision once the offer was in place."
This summer, Washington has just kept to himself in the quiet town of Waynesboro.
"All I have done is work out and do drills at school. After that, I go to work and then go home and sleep."
His schedule will change a little this week as Washington is set on being in Athens Friday and Saturday for Georgia's Senior Camp. "I am really looking forward to that," Washington added.
Being a UGA commitment, does Washington plan to help the UGA Staff recruit other players?
Washington replied while laughing, "there isn't anyone out here around me. I will definitely be recruiting though at the camp this weekend, and then during my official visit in the fall."
Marcus is a strong (300 pound Bench / 430 pound Squat) and athletic player that plays, both running back and linbacker for Burke County. At Georgia, Washington will play strictly defense and, and he projects as a middle linebacker.
Washington is set academically to fully qualify.
