"I could probably give you a top eight," linebacker Mark Washington said. "They would be Colorado, USC, UCLA, Washington, Notre Dame, Miami, Oregon, and Texas A&M."
"And I'm still looking at Ohio State and Michigan State. I'm still checking them out."
"Colorado, USC, Oregon, and Washington have offered me. I really don't have a favorite."
Washington, a 6-foot-3 and 240 pounder from Long Beach (Calif.) Poly Tech, made 45 tackles including five sacks during his junior season. He has a 3.3 GPA and scored a 910 on the SAT.
