When you play for Long Beach (Calif.) Poly sometimes you can get lost with all the talent that has gone one of the nation’s most prestigious football factories. One player who has really made a name for himself this season is linebacker Mark Washington (6-3, 240, 4.58).
Washington helped atone for last year when Huntington Beach (Calif.) Edison gave Poly all they could handle in the SS-CIF Division I championship.
Poly pounded Edison this season 30-7 in the first round and Washington was amazing. He racked up 14 tackles and had four sacks helping Poly to victory.
Washington only has one visit set to Colorado on December 13th. The Colorado winters will be nothing new to Washington, he was born in Los Angeles, and he lived in Colorado until he was eight years of age.
Washington has offers on the table from USC, Washington, Washington State, Oregon, Oregon State, ASU, Arizona, Fresno State, San Jose State, UNLV, San Diego State and Sacramento State.
Notre Dame is now in the hunt and Washington is planning on taking a trip to the Fighting Irish campus in South Bend. “Notre Dame says they are going to offer me when I take my trip,” Washington said.
Oregon is in good shape for the third visit but for the last two Washington told Rivals100 that he is keeping an open mind.
Washington has accounted for over 90 tackles, 20 tackles for loss, four fumbles caused and four pass deflections so far his senior season.
