Recently, ShowMeMizzou.com spoke with long-time Missouri offer and 2015 CB/WR prospect Keith Washington 6’2” 170 Prattville (AL). Washington talked about his Missouri offer, his interest in Missouri, and he updated us on the current status of his recruitment, including some visit plans.
Washington said that Missouri is recruiting him as an athlete, to play on either side of the football. But he said that he’d prefer to play corner.
“Missouri offered me a long time ago,” said Washington, who identified Missouri assistant Craig Kuligowski as his primary recruiter. “It was a huge offer! It was one of the earlier offers I received. It’s a great offer. SEC………………………………….. They’re recruiting me pretty hard. I’m actually going to take an official visit to Missouri on January 23.”
Washington played basketball and ran track earlier in his high school career. He ran a 4.38-second 40-yard dash a year ago, to go along with a 36” standing vertical, and a 4.06-second 5-10-5 shuttle. He graduated from high school in December, and he could go ahead and enroll in college for the spring semester.
Washington has received offers from California, Duke, Hawaii, Indiana, Memphis, Miami, North Carolina, Northwestern, Southern Miss, UAB, ULL, USF, and Wake Forest, among others, in addition to Missouri.
He’s already visited California and North Carolina, and he’s scheduled to visit Indiana on January 16. He’s considering California, Indiana, and North Carolina, in addition to Missouri, and he is receiving late interest from Auburn.
“Missouri’s still recruiting me real hard,” explained Washington. “I want to see it for myself. After I visit Missouri, I’m going to make my decision about where I’m going to be playing college ball……………………………………… Missouri’s a possibility. I’m just looking for a place that feels like home, where I can play early, and where I can get a great education.”
