Cypress (Texas) Cy Woods High School enters its inaugural varsity season. The Wildcats have been dominating their junior varsity schedule over the past two seasons, and high school fans are anxious to see how Cy Woods will translate to the varsity level.
One athlete that translates not only to the varsity level, but the Division I college level is defensive end Justin Washington. While the 6-foot-3, 275-pounder has little varsity film, Washington will dominate the line of scrimmage this season and will be one of the biggest 2009 sleepers this year.
"Justin is a DI guy who is so athletic for his size," Cy Woods coach David Jones said. "We have him at defensive end because that is where we need him. He will project as a defensive tackle in college."
Recruiters from across the country will get his tape after the first three games and Washington will stick out. His lower body is very developed and he gets tremendous leverage.
Schools including Arizona, Utah and UTEP have offered Washington.
"I like all the schools and Arizona is sticking out to me right now," he said. "I feel like I'm going to get some offers during the season so I feel like my recruiting process is really just starting."
