The speedy athlete will also get to chance to play against family when he joins the FAU football team as his cousin and fellow Okeechobee High alum, Bubba Fludd currently plays cornerback for conference foe Southern Mississippi.
Washington becomes the 6th commit of the 2020 Cycle for FAU, joining Quarterback Anthony Romph, Running Back Frank Gore Jr., offensive linemen Andre Lamas, wide receiver Justin McKithen, and defensive back Charles Tombs.
