With the departure of Jerricho Cotchery, Richard Washington could emerge as NC State's go-to receiver in 2004. He has the big-play ability to be a deep threat for either Marcus Stone or Jay Davis. With added strength from the off-season, look for great things from Washington in his junior year.
Richard's likely going to have another good season for NC State, but if he can post the numbers to garner All-ACC or All-American honors remains to be seen.
