BIO: Starter the past two seasons who has played extensively since his freshman campaign. Senior rushing totals included 97/430/3 with 25/267/1 as a receiver. Career-best rushing numbers of 138/951/7 came as a junior. Used as a return specialist the past four seasons.
POSITIVES: Elusive ball carrier with terrific first-step quickness. Runs low to the ground, gets lost behind blockers and explodes through the small creases on the field. Sets up defenders, makes them miss or bounces around piles to pick up positive yardage. Aggressive, does not go down without a fight and breaks arm tackles.
NEGATIVES: More quick than fast and cannot run to daylight. Marginal strength and intensity as a blocker.
ANALYSIS: A shifty runner with a slashing style, Washington is known as a selfless team leader with a passion for the game. Though disappointing as a senior, he nicely projects as a third-down back/situational runner at the next level.
