As you just watched live on Fox Sports Ohio and tBBC, Cincinnati Taft standout Adolphus Washington has become the latest member of the Ohio State class of 2011.
A member of the Army All-American team, Scout has Adolphus as a five star recruit, the number three defensive end in the nation, and the top player in the state of Ohio.
A 6′ 5″ student athlete who is projected as an outside linebacker/defensive end, Washington has been high on the Ohio State target list for 2012.
His offer list included Cincinnati, Kentucky, Illinois, Alabama, Southern Cal, Oregon, Texas, Texas A&M, Michigan State, Miami, Michigan, Florida State, Pittsburgh, among others… although many believe he was strong Buckeye lean for a while now. In fact, most of this article was written back in August when he was believed to have verballed to the coaching staff prior to the beginning of the 2011 season.
A stellar basketball player as well, Washington brings a lot to the table athletically. Statistically, he runs a 4.6- 4.7 40 yard dash, and is listed as having over 119 tackles and 17 sacks during his junior year.
