Myles Washington, a 5-foot-10 207 pound running back from New Orleans Louisiana, recently picked up an offer from Kent State on Wednesday night. This is his second FBS offer, the other one being Louisville.
Washington, who is rated a 2-star recruit by 247Sports, is currently playing quarterback for his high school team, John Curtis. Although he is playing quarterback in high school, Washington is being recruited as a running back by colleges.
Washington received an offer from Kent State on Wednesday night. In a recent interview, Washington told Hustle Belt how he found out about the offer.
"I actually was on my home from a baseball game when my friend, Raekwon James, told me to call Coach Gamble. When I called coach, he told me that I had an offer and I just had to send him my test score and GPA. I got a call from him the next day and told me that I officially had an offer from Kent State."
Washington's recruitment started off slow and at first it caused him to become discouraged as he saw many of his friends get offers while he was left empty handed. However, his recruitment has picked up significantly since that time and he is extremely grateful for that.
"Not a lot of schools were showing interest at first and I have a lot of respect for Louisville and Kent State for showing interest in me and willingness to give me a chance when nobody else really did."
Washington was very excited about his newest offer, however many more could be coming his way. TCU, Minnesota, University of Louisiana at Lafayette, and Georgia Tech have all shown interest in the 5-foot-10 207 pound running back.
Washington told Hustle Belt that he has no timetable for making his big college decision and hasn't narrowed down his list yet.
Even though he has not narrowed down his list of schools yet, he has given a lot of thought into what he is looking for in a school.
"Distance does not really matter to me. I want it to feel like home, feel comfortable with the coaching staff, and I really want it to be family."
Although Washington has not visited Kent State or many other schools, however he is well aware of recent Kent State's graduate Dri Archer's career and his success. With his combination of quickness and power, Myles Washington could be the next great Kent State running back if he ultimately winds up there. With that said, whatever school Washington decides on he will be a great addition for that program.
