Washington has versatile role in NUC All-Star game

Missouri City (Texas) Fort Bend Marshall athlete DeAndre Washington is in South Carolina this week for the inaugural NUC All-World Gridiron Classic Game, and even though other programs continue to pursue the 2011 standout, he's got his sights set on his future as a Red Raider.

"It's my first time to meet all of these other Tech guys that are out here and it's been a great experience so far. Our class has been pretty close from top to bottom and this is just another part of that process," Washington said. "We're laying a foundation for relationships that we're going to have for the next four or five years. We're all looking forward to being at Tech and I think this time together will only make us more comfortable when we finally get there."

Washington will be making an official visit to Lubbock on January the 21st. He's also got an official visit scheduled with Oklahoma State for January 15th.

"Besides the guys at Tech, I've still been hearing from Baylor, Colorado, and Oklahoma State," he said. "I'm going to visit Oklahoma State, but it shouldn't be anything that will change my situation. I'm happy to be a Red Raider."

"I've seen some time at a little bit of everything. They've got me as the starting running back right now. I've been at the slot some, and I've also taken snaps out of the Wildcat formation. They've been using me in a few different ways."

"I know that's what I'm going to be doing when I get to Tech. Coach Chad Scott and I have talked about different ways they're going to use me in their offense and I'm excited about all of the different spots I'm probably going to see time at," Washington said. "I'm just ready to get there and get to work. It's going to be fun."

Washington committed to Tech in August over offers from Arizona, Baylor, Boise State, Colorado, Houston, Iowa State, Kansas State, Louisville, Memphis, North Texas, Oklahoma State, Tulsa, and Vanderbilt.
