Really Hate I Gotta Leave Lubbock Today ??— Broderick Washington (@Bright_Lights66) January 25, 2015
Washington, who committed to the Red Raiders back in September, is expected to come in and play defensive lineman. He is one of four defensive linemen currently committed to Tech, joining five-star Under Armour All-American defensive tackle Breiden Fehoko, three-star defensive tackle Courtney Wallace of Louisiana Class 4A state champ Monroe Neville and Spring three-star defensive end Lonzell Gilmore.
Washington, 6-foot-3, 290 pounds, was surrounded by seven other Texas Tech commits on his visit and said his favorite part of his visit was bonding with his future teammates.
“It was great,” Washington said. “I got to meet my future teammates and we got to know each other.”
He added that this 2015 class has a lot of potential and is full of talented players.
Washington mentioned meeting new defensive coordinator David Gibbs for the first time and said he is a good addition.
“It was good,” Washington said. “He told us the plan for next year and I’m very excited to play underneath him.”
After this weekend Washington said he is 100 percent solid with the Red Raiders.
“I was solid when I committed to them and I still am now,” Washington said.
Washington recently received a ratings boost. The three-star prospect is rated as the No. 13 defensive tackle in the midlands region and No. 11 in Texas by Scout.
