Kannapolis (N.C.) Brown athlete Damien Washington landed his first BCS offer just over a week ago. The 6-foot-1, 180-pounder discussed the scholarship and his plans from here inside.
"I got the offer from North Carolina two days after Coach Davis was fired," he said. "That Friday they called to tell me they offered me."
Washington is impressed by the offer.
"It's a good offer," he said. "I actually like Carolina and I've been thinking about what they offer and stuff. I haven't committed yet, I want to wait a bit before I jump and make a decision. Part of the reason I'm waiting is that they are supposed to send it in paper."
Washington went deeper on the Tar Heels.
"When I was little I always liked the school, they are a good academic school," he said. "There's just something about Carolina, something I can't claim."
Of course, the offer comes amid a change in staff at North Carolina.
"It's terrible for Carolina, but I'm sure they'll get a good coach and it may even be Coach Withers."
While North Carolina has pulled the trigger joining Richmond, a few other schools including Wofford, Wake Forest and NC State have also shown an interest.
Does Washington like anybody?
"I like Carolina and anybody else that wants to offer," he said. "Right now I'm just waiting.
"I want to do it (decision) in the next couple weeks. I don't want to lose my scholarship offer because I get hurt or they take it away or something."
In limited duty, Washington accounted for approximately 700-yards of offense as a junior last year.
"I did pretty well," he said. "I ended up playing running back cause Travis (Riley) got hurt. I didn't touch the ball a whole lot, but most games I had 100-yards and I made something happen."
As for his position at the next level, Washington is flexible.
"Colleges are saying wide receiver, running back and safety," he said. "I can put in the work to do whatever."
