"I wasn't really recruited out of high school," Washington, who prepped at Simi Valley High School in California, told JCFootball.com. "I would have qualified, but since I wasn't really recruited I never applied for the Clearinghouse."
Washington looked around for some two-year schools, but he decided on Moorpark for their coaching staff and because it was close to home.
In 2005, Washington posted solid numbers – 45 catches for 770 yards and six touchdowns – while receiving honorable mention All-Conference recognition.
"This past year I had 47 receptions for 810 yards and 10 touchdowns," Washington said. "They gave me second team All-Conference honors which was pretty cool."
From an athleticism standpoint, Washington has good numbers that have made him intriguing to some D-1 programs. He runs the forty in 4.5 seconds and said he has a max bench press right now of 265 pounds.
"I run really crisp routes," Washington said. "That's probably my best asset as a wide receiver. If you run good routes, you don't need to be a home run guy. You can get separation without great speed if you run good routes.
"I have pretty good speed, but my route-running is really what I take most of my pride in."
Over the summer Washington said he really focused on getting stronger.
"I know blocking is a big deal for wide receivers and I worked really hard on that this past summer," Washington said. "I needed to get stronger and I'm continuing to work on that this offseason as well."
Kansas State, Wyoming and Portland State are the three schools showing Washington the most interest at this point, but no offers have been forthcoming.
"None of them have offered, but they said they are very interested in me and they are talking about me visiting them next month (January)," Washington said. "I can play outside or slot, it doesn't really matter. I can make it work. Wherever they see me playing that's what I'll focus the most on."
Washington will graduate in May and ill have three years to play two. He wants to major in Sports Medicine.
