It's official: Washington commits
First, he was, then he wasn't, then he was again. Now, Taurian Washington has officially committed to play football for Ohio State starting in the fall of 2007. BuckNuts had originally reported that he committed a few weeks ago, but then his family came out and gave the world a Lee Corso with their own, "Not so fast, my friends!" Then, Rivals.com put Washington on the list of Buckeye commits after a member of his family had spilled the beans. Anyways, all the confusion around Washington was cleared today when he verbaled.
Washington is from the same high school as OSU safety Aaron Gant and recent FSU recruit Dionte Allen. What makes this all so much sweeter is that all of these guys are pretty highly touted, and all of them hail from the state up north. That's three legit players that won't be wearing maize and blue, and two of them are in scarlet and gray.
Washington is probably the most well known of all of Ohio State's '07 recruits. He is another 4 star player, and the #23 ranked WR nationally. What is most encouraging about Washington, however, are all of the comparisons to Santonio Holmes. They both have similar size and have pretty equal speed (at least when Santonio first came in). Hopefully he pans out, because we need another Santonio.
Keep it going, viewers. I know I will.
