Devin Washington Commits To South Carolina Gamecocks

Devin Washington

South Carolina lands a talented defensive end recruit.

Devin Washington, a top defensive end recruit from Orlando, has committed to the South Carolina Gamecocks. Washington posted the news to his Facebook wall Thursday. Washington stars for Orlando (Fla.) Jones High School.

Washington stands 6'3" and weighs 225 pounds. He recently had a standout performance at the Orlando Nike Football Camp:

Two other defensive lineman also stood out. Devin Washington, a defensive end from Orlando Jones High School was quite impressive. He had a win over offensive lineman Laremy Tunsil and showed well in drills. Washington's build will remind long-time Florida Recruitniks of a young Brandon Jenkins from Talahassee (Fla.) Florida High in the 2009 class, though I do not believe Washington is as talented as Jenkins at the same point in their respective high school careers. Washington took home the defensive line MVP, but he was not invited to the Opening.

Washington holds offers from Boston Coll., Cincinnati, Clemson, Duke, Illinois, Iowa St., Kansas, Louisville, Missouri, N.C. State, Northwestern, Pittsburgh, Purdue, Rutgers, South Florida, SMU, Vanderbilt, Wake Forest and West Virginia. He is rated three and four stars by the various recruiting services.

South Carolina may have a battle on its hands to hold on to Washington if other options do not work out for Florida or Florida State and either the Seminoles or Gators come calling.
