One of the most excited players to sign with Ohio State today was wide
receiver/defensive back Donald Washington out of Indianapolis Franklin Central.
Sometimes, recruits can find offers pulled out from under them if they wait too
long to make a decision, but Washington proved that good things can come to
those who wait. Washington seemed set to decide between Illinois and Indiana,
but Ohio State came through with an offer just over a week before signing day.
"I think he's always had the incredible dream to play at Ohio State and
it is starting to finally materialize for him," Franklin Central head coach
Lance Scheib said last week.
