Alex Washington takes in Ole Miss game

Alex Washington (OL, Monroe, LA) - The 6' 4", 315 pound Carroll High standout had a chance to take an unofficial visit to Ole Miss this past weekend.

"I kind of liked the game. I thought Ole Miss should have won though. They had a couple of opportunities they did not capitalize on and a couple of bad calls. They should have won," commented Alex Washington.

Did anyone accompany Alex on his visit?

"I went with Khalida Wilson and his dad. Khalida is a defensive tackle Ole Miss is recruiting from my school but he is only a junior."

What did Alex think of the atmosphere at Ole Miss?

"It was good. They had a big crowd. Their fans were really into the game. That is the type of crowd I like. They play good competition each week. They seem like a good school."

Washington had a few observations from the game.

"I fit in good with their scheme. I think I can get some early playing time if I sign with them."

Did Washington talk to the coaches?

"I talked to pretty much all of them. I spoke with Coach O, my recruiter Frank Wilson, and Coach Kehoe. They were talking about the game and telling me how well I would fit in. They said I would have a good chance at playing a lot my freshman year."

Has Alex set up his official visits yet?

"Just with Ole Miss. I am going December 1 - 3."

Alex received a phone call Monday night from the Ole Miss coaches.

"They asked me to commit, but I told them I am going to wait."

Alex still needs some more time to think about things.

"I have not taken the time to just think about it real good. Right now, I am just focusing on getting us to the playoffs because we have had a rough start, but Ole Miss still is my top school."
