Defensive end Adolphus Washington, the top-ranked player in the state according to Scout, chose the school this morning in a ceremony held at his high school, Cincinnati Taft.
Washington (6-6, 240) is the third-ranked defensive end in the country and the No. 15 overall player in the country. He is up for the prestigious U.S. Army Player of the Year Award, and had previously said his college choices were narrowed to OSU, Michigan State, Kentucky, Michigan, Miami, Oregon and Alabama.
Washington's high school teammate, highly touted wideout Dwayne Stanford, also chose this morning, picking Oregon just days after returning from a visit to Eugene. Stanford (6-4, 195) is a three-star prospect.
