Washington Makes It Official

Earlier this month, Donald Washington of Indianapolis Franklin Central likely did not have much hope of receiving an offer from Ohio State. Things changed quickly though, and today, Donald Washington officially signed with the Buckeyes. Check out some photos of the signing ceremony.

One of the most excited players to sign with Ohio State today was wide receiver/defensive back Donald Washington out of Indianapolis Franklin Central. Sometimes, recruits can find offers pulled out from under them if they wait too long to make a decision, but Washington proved that good things can come to those who wait. Washington seemed set to decide between Illinois and Indiana, but Ohio State came through with an offer just over a week before signing day.

"I think he's always had the incredible dream to play at Ohio State and it is starting to finally materialize for him," Franklin Central head coach Lance Scheib said last week.

Below are three photos of Washington's signing day ceremony, sent in by Mike Wells:
