Power forward Kyle Washington was the first to make a major summer recruiting splash in the state of Minnesota when he went to Badger Team Camp in June and picked up an offer from Coach Bo Ryan. Since then, the 6'8" Washington has played with the Howard Pulley Panthers in the Peach Jam - and his performance added him a few more high-major offers.
As a 2013 four man Washington averaged 8.4 points, six rebounds, and a pair of blocks a game last week. He also put up 11 points and nine rebounds going directly against the nine points, eight rebounds, and five turnovers that four star 2012 center Adam Woodbury (the 50th ranked prospect in the nation) had for All Iowa Attack. Soon after, Washington received more good news.
"I just picked up an offer from Iowa State and Penn State," Washington said Monday.
Then on Tuesday afternoon, the young forward got more good news.
"I just picked up an offer from Marquette," said Washington.
Kyle now has offers from these three schools - plus Wisconsin and Drake.
Washington and the Pulley Panthers will next play in Saint Louis at the Saint Louis Summer Classic starting Friday.
