Nederland (TX) DT DeShawn Washington, who committed to the Aggies just a few weeks ago, sent shockwaves through the Lone Star State when he shut it down his recruitment.

Good stuff Taylor!
This kid will be a star...that burst off the line is absolutely ridonk.
Taylor, seems like this commitment wouldn't have been possible without Price. Is it safe to say your position coach is more important than the head coach when it comes to making a decision?
I think so Pete.
Anyone else think Washington will get a bump in the rankings? Had a lot of nice offers and projects well after a year or two in the weight room.
Very nice article Thamm.
He sounds like a pretty level headed young man who realizes what is in front of him.
He's getting a bump D2. On Rivals and here. I've seen analysts mention it a few times..
Love this kid's burst off the line. If I had to pick one word to describe the tackles last year, it would be power (particularly for Golden but also Manning), which is not to say they aren't quick as well. But I would say this kid is first and foremost quick off the line and I think the power can come even more once he get's an offseason in A&M's strength program. Great compliment to the 2013 tackle haul.
With him and Walker and Points (whom I expect both to RS) that's 5 DTs in two classes! What a difference this is going to make in 2014 and beyond!
Great prospect, completely shutting it down, beat out texas, thinking about graduating early, not a grade or character risk, doesn't get much better than that.
Immediately thought he should be could be on the edge too with his frame. Very versatile, athletic, and explosive.

Thought about the only way this commitment story could be better; if DeShawn was batshyt crazy like Nealy.
only thing that worries me is there are 2 schools in the golden triangle area where for some reason, we are not well thought of. nederland and west orange-stark. hope someone does not pressure him to change.
with strength and focus comes power and ability. this is an awesome recruit that fit the need to a tee. great report. thanks and best to DeShawn as he starts out in a great career.
