Heading to LSU in May

Evan Washington's stock is higher than ever

Evan Washington is one of the Lone Star State's top offensive line prospects, and the Tiger staff has taken notice. In January, the big man picked up his LSU offer. Three months later, the Tigers are still right where they need to be.

At 6-foot-5, 285-pounds, Evan Washington has the frame that college coaches want in an offensive tackle.

Of course, his offer sheet does the talking.

“I am up to almost to 20 offers,” Washington said. “I think I am at 18 or 19, I can’t really remember. Things are going great for me though, because I never expected that this many schools would be after me.”

With Miami, Oklahoma and LSU being three of his frontrunners, all of whom have offered, the DeSoto standout said that the coming months should go a long way in determining how his recruitment shakes out.

“I have not really thought about a leader, because it is smart for me to just keep everyone that is interested in the running at this point,” Washington said.

“I will take some visits and do some camps and see what I think. When I do make my cuts, though, LSU will still be around.”

Though teammates Darius Terrell and Adrian White have become Longhorn commits, Washington said that there is something about the Tigers that intrigues him enough to want to check out the out-of-state program.

“I like LSU because they are in the SEC, and for me that is one of the toughest, if not the toughest, conference to play in,” he said. “I like to compete at a high level, so LSU would allow me to do that.”

Though he can’t make the LSU Spring Game, the DeSoto native said that he will be making the trek to Baton Rouge soon enough.

“I am going to be at Oklahoma State the weekend of the spring game, but I talked with the coaches and we set a date for me to come down at the end of May,” Washington said.

“Coach Mac got with me and said that when I get over he will talk to me more about where I fit in with the program, so I am looking forward to that,” he added. “I am supposed to call the staff again in a few days, so I am going to stick with the coaches and hear more as the summer goes on.”

Washington has offers from LSU, Miami, Oklahoma, Texas Tech, Kansas and Baylor, among others.
