For the fourth time this summer, the Texas A&M coaching staff dipped into the state of Louisiana and added a blue chip athlete to its 2013 recruiting class. Alexandria athlete Shaan Washington is the latest to pull the trigger for the Aggies.
"Yes, I committed to Texas A&M," Washington said. "I talked it over with my dad and this is where I wanted to go and there was no reason to wait. So I called the coaches and committed."
The 6-foot-3, 218-pound wide receiver/defensive back will play safety in college. His size and physical presence is something Texas A&M has lacked in recent years.
"My strength is my ability to read plays. I'm an instinctive player," Washington. "But I enjoy laying the wood the most. Nothing feels better than putting a big hit on an opponent."
The Louisiana product indicated that his commitment to Texas A&M ends the recruiting process for him. He has no interest in visiting other schools in the future. Washington marks the No. 25 commit in this 2013 class. With as many as six mid-term recruits in the class, the Aggies can sign as many as 31 prospects.
