"Yes, Bobby Washington is here, and he is enrolled in classes," EKU Assistant AD for Public relations Simon Gray told Pack Pride. "He will play running back. He will have three to play two. I don't anticipate him redshirting here."
Washington, who hails from Miami, Florida, rushed for 40 yards during his sophomore season and tallied one tackle and a quarterback hurry on defense after switching from tailback to safety late in the year.
Eastern Kentucky, a DI-AA program that participates in the Ohio Valley Conference, finished last season 7-4. The Colonels played NC State in mid-September, losing 54-10 in Raleigh. Ironically, that was Washington's best game of the season, as he rushed for 34 yards on six carries.
Washington will be eligible to play right away for Eastern Kentucky, giving the Colonels an explosive tailback to team up with quarterback Josh Greco in the backfield. As a sophomore, Greco was named OVC Offensive Player of the Year in 2005.
Washington will have three years to play two seasons at EKU.
