One of the top power forwards in the 2017 class is P.J. Washington, a 6-foot-7, 220-pound four man from Henderson (Nev.) Findlay Prep.

With his ability to score around the basket and with his jumper, Scout's 29th ranked prospect is pleased with his production as a junior.

"I'm just trying to get my team involved and win games," Washington said. "I feel like I'm shooting better, I'm rebounding, finding teammates and hustling. I'm working on my body and ball handling."

Several offers have come in for Washington, who listed Kentucky, UCLA, California, Texas, Michigan State and Florida as some of the schools currently pursuing him.

The four-star prospect listed three schools recruiting him the hardest.

"Texas, Cal and UCLA," Washington said, before discussing what he likes about each of those programs.

Texas: "I like how coach (Shaka) Smart is coaching everybody. They're looking nice right now."

Cal: "With Jaylen Brown and Ivan Rabb, you can't go wrong."

UCLA: "When they beat Kentucky, that was a good game. I feel like their coaching staff is really good. They're a good team this year."

Washington has recently taken unofficial visits to Arizona, Cal, Texas and Kentucky.

"The Kentucky visit was nice, I liked everything about it," Washington said. "I liked the (Arizona) coaching staff and the way they played; I liked everything about it."

As of now, Washington has no plans to rush a decision.

"I'm waiting until my senior year," he said. "Not anytime soon."
