5-foot-9, 155-pound cornerback Aapri Washington may be just a rising sophomore, but he's already collected a handful of offers.
Wake Forest: "They're an in-state school. They're coming up. They're starting to be one of the best in-state schools because people sleep on them because they're not North Carolina or NC State."
Boston College: "I have a good relationship with Coach Al Washington. I've been talking to him for a while."
Syracuse: "I have family in Connecticut, which is close to them. That wouldn't be a bad option."
Old Dominion: "He was the coach at Connecticut. I had been talking to him. I wasn't expecting the offer at first. I do have a good relationship with him."
Mississippi State: "They offered me in eighth grade. I went there once. They were always the first offer, so that will always stand out."
Washington says that right now, no school has an advantage over another.
"I don't have any favorites yet. I'm just going around and building relationships," he said.
As for the rest of his recruitment, Washington is hearing from several schools across the country.
"Arizona, Ohio State, North Carolina and North Carolina State have all been talking to me," he said.
Speaking of the Buckeyes, Washington made his way to Columbus to attend their camp.
"They kept telling me to come to camp. The camp went really well," he said.
Washington also attended camps at North Carolina, North Carolina State, Tennessee, Clemson and West Virginia.
While Washington says he doesn't plan on making his decision until the end of his junior year, he does know what he's looking for in a school.
"Academics will come first. I want to major in business and sports medicine. Also, I'll look at the relationship with the coach. I want him to be a mentor/father figure while I'm away from home. I just the family atmosphere," he said.
