Western Kentucky commitment D.J. Washington recaps his visit to Louisville; is still committed to the Toppers

Western Kentucky commitment D.J. Washington of Ballard made a visit to the University of Louisville on Thursday night. The offensive lineman recaps his visit and says he's still committed to WKU.

Ballard High School offensive lineman D.J. Washington has been committed to Western Kentucky since mid-June but said he's still getting recruiting letters from some other schools.

One of those schools is his hometown Louisville Cardinals and on Thursday night he checked out Bobby Petrino's team.

The 6-foot-5, 275-pound Washington was one of about 30 recruits on campus for the Louisville opener in Papa John's Cardinal Stadium, a 70-14 win over Charlotte.

"Louisville looked super impressive," Washington said. "They still send me letters all the time and invited me to all their events."

But Washington said he is "for sure" still committed to the Toppers.

"Yes sir," he said. "I am excited for that WKU-Alabama game and I will get to see some others games (at WKU). I'm excited to see how they do. I watched them on TV against Rice and they looked really good."

Washington has been a big key for Ballard, which has started the season 2-1. The Bruins whipped DeSales 29-10 on Friday night.
