Southeast Raleigh QB Having a Huge Season

David Washington is one of the most dynamic high school football players in the state of North Carolina, but he has somehow been overlooked by many schools in regards to recruiting. That will likely change, as he has taken his game to a new level this season.

David Washington (6'3/190) of Southeast Raleigh High School in Raleigh, N.C. had a huge game last week. The senior quarterback had over 500 yards of total offense against undefeated Garner. Despite putting up huge numbers and leading his team to a 7-2 record, he is still waiting for his first Division 1 offer.

"Right now recruiting is a little bit slow," said Washington. "I don't really have much; I have a couple of Division 1-AA offers. I have offers from University of Albany, Old Dominion, Western Carolina, Norfolk State, Gardner Webb, and Elon."

The Bulldog signal-caller is also attracting interest from some Division 1 schools and he hopes some them will offer.

"I am hearing from Wake Forest, Maryland, North Carolina, North Carolina State, and Vanderbilt. I believe Wake Forest, Maryland and Vanderbilt are all close to offering. Wake Forest is recruiting me the hardest," he said.

Three main things will be under consideration when Washington decides where he will go to college.

"I want to go somewhere close to home, but not to close. I also want to go to a school that gets to play on television and somewhere that has a passionate fan base," he said.

Washington's main focus is the rest of the season.

"Our team's goal is to win a State Championship," Washington said. "Personally, I want to get to 3,000 yards passing and 1,500 rushing."

So far this season, Washington has thrown for over 2,100 yards and run for over 1,100. He has 26 touchdown passes and 17 touchdowns on the ground. The Southeast Raleigh star is being recruited by most schools as an athlete. Washington could play quarterback, wide receiver, or safety in college. He has no position preference at the next level. The talented prospect will make his decision on signing day.
