RECRUITING: Sooners scouting Guthrie lineman

Guthrie offensive lineman David Washington receiving attention from OU and other Big 12 schools


Guthrie has become a much improved program over the last couple of years and they have started to develop tough, rawboned offensive linemen like Washington. With a good senior year Washington will earn several D1 scholarship offers from around the Big 12 area.

Washington started the last playoff game of his sophomore year at offensive tackle and he started every game last season at left tackle. Washington graded out very well every game and he believes that he always earned an 85 or above. He can bench 260, squats 405 and he starts in hoops (10 ppg, 10 rpg).

Washington has never gone to summer football camps before, but this summer he plans to attend the OSU, OU and Nebraska camps. Washington is still looking for his first offer, but a number of schools are showing attention.

"OSU, Stanford and OU are showing me some attention," said Washington. "I am not really sure what OU's intentions are at this time, but they have contacted me and have been by my school. New Mexico State and Colorado State are also sending me a lot of mail and have come to watch me practice.

"I am mainly looking for a good education system and I want to be comfortable at the school," said Washington on what he's looking for in a college. "I want to play for a program with a great tradition and one that works hard in all areas."

Washington will take his first crack at the ACT the next test period.
