Baltimore QB Loves Terps
Washington, a 6-foot, 180-pound junior who will guide the defending Maryland 2A champs into the playoffs this weekend, has long been a Terps fan. He makes no secret of who his favorite school is.
"It's close to home and I really like that offense," said Washington, a dual-threat quarterback who has passed for nearly 1,000 yards and rushed for another 342 this season. "I'm mostly interested in Maryland and Rutgers."
Washington hasn't been to College Park lately but plans to head down I-95 sometime soon. His coaches have heard from the Terps staff and he's also visited Rutgers and been hearing from UConn. He'd like to wrap up the process early, if the right offers come along. Asked if it would be hard to turn down a Maryland offer, he said, "Yeah, definitely.
"I'm looking to pick a school early on. I'm just ready to get it out of the way so I can focus on my senior year," he said.
As a sophomore, Washington completed 58 percent of his passes for 1299 yards and 10 touchdowns to only four interceptions. He also rushed for 300 yards and seven touchdowns, leading his team to a 13-1 record and the state crown. He ran a 4.46-second 40 at the Baltimore Combine last summer.
The biggest question with Washington is what position he'll play in college. Though he said he'd like to stay at quarterback, his stature and athleticism might dictate a move elsewhere. Though he doesn't know many of the Terps, he's got a favorite player.
"Josh Portis. I had a chance to work out with him at a camp. He's supposed to come out here after the season and work out with us," Washington said.
With Washington not having visited yet, his status may come down to how well he performs at camp this summer and at which what position the staff projects him. We'll keep you updated…
