"Yea, it has been kind of crazy, to say the least," added Demond Washington. "But the visit went good. My momma appreciated it. I have made my mind up. I know where I am going, but I am not telling anybody about it. Me and my mom pretty much know where I will end up at."
Demond has already let both schools know of his decision.
"I have informed the school that I am going to of my decision, and I have
informed the school that I am not going to of my decision, but they are still
recruiting me pretty hard."
"Because they said they feel like they can influence me to change my mind
Does Demond still consider himself committed to Ole Miss?
Why does the juco All-American not want to tell the public if both staffs have
already been informed?
"I do not want anymore pressure from around here. It is getting kind of
ridiculous for me and my mother. I am just telling everyone that the schools
are equal, when they ask me, but my mind is made up. Once I got my mom's blessing;
that was it."
What questions did Washington's mother have for Coach Nutt when he visited?
"She wanted to know about the position I was going to play and the academic
side of things. Coach Nutt told her that I was going to start out at running
back, and that I would be given every opportunity to earn a starting job. She
liked that a lot. And as far as their academics, Coach Nutt said he looks after
his players harder in the classroom than he does on the field. He showed her
the graduation percentage for Ole Miss' student athletes and it was very impressive.
She was very pleased with it all."
Why does Demond's mother worry about the position he is going to play on the
"She said she does not like watching me play cornerback because everyone
is scared of me and they always throw to the other side of the field. She thinks
it is boring watching me play cornerback. But at tailback, I am always in the
middle of the action."
Is that how momma really feels, or was her opinion influenced a little by her
"Well, you know how that goes (laugh). Moms are always going to take up
for their sons (laugh)."
Will Auburn still bring over their head coach on Thursday to meet with Washington?
"Yes sir, they are. I told both schools I would give them an opportunity
to come to my house and talk to my mother. I am still going to stick to my word
on that, but my mind is made up. Both schools already know of my decision. Everyone
else is going to have to wait."
