2015 CB option - Keith Washington

Submitted by Jkidd49 on February 3rd, 2015 at 7:08 PM

little talk on the board or posts but it appears as though he is decided between Cal & Michigan tomorrow.. which is odd since he is already listed as a Cal commit ,

He committed to Cal in late January. But he has never visited Michigan, so I have to think he'll stick with Cal. That would be quite a big deal to commit to a school so far that he's never seen (he's from Alabama).

Also, Michigan just offered Washington's running back. Washington was the QB, and Kingston Davis (2016) was his backfield mate.

Had comms with Kinston's dad today. Dad (LC) is a huge 'Bama fan but family is very excited by Michigan offer. Very tight military family. Sounds like they've had talks with Coach Wheatley and that's going real well. Dad was put-off by suggestions on these boards that Kingston is a fullback. Says it won't happen (FB).

I think some of these guys just want to say they are still deciding so that they continue to get coverage.  Then when they are asked "between whom?", they throw out one of their recent offers (i.e., Michigan).

are showing that he is committed to Cal, then in all likelihood he has...just not highly public yet.

Last night 247 showed Perry committed to Michigan before it became twitterized today.

We need to get a pair of bad ass 2016 CBs.  Top 100 types or whatever Durkin's eye says is a top 100 type.  And a serious safety.  All these guys are going to be playing on the 2017 defense either as true sophomore or RS FR. 

Best case nickel defense I can make today in 2 years if Peppers goes pro early is:

  • CB Reon Dawson
  • CB Brandon Watson
  • S Brian Cole
  • S Ty Kinnel
  • NB any 2016 CB... or current WR Ross Douglas
  • Backup CB #1 Any 2016 guy
  • Backup CB #2 Any 2016/2017 true freshman
  • Backup S #1 Any 2016 guy
  • Backup S #2 Any 2016/2017 true freshman

Iman's a pipe dream right now - the only (few) crystal ballz flipping are FSU so it looks like we are 3rd at best on his swim lanes.  Williamson/Arnette/Adams misses hurt here.

We have 14 current spots in the 2016 class - with attrition I expect that to be 18ish+.  There is a serious case to be made that 25%+ of our 2016 recruits will be DBs with the misses this year.
