Marcus Washington Jr. will continue a family tradition as he has committed to play for the Georgia Bulldogs, just like his father.
Washington, a cornerback, has announced on social media that he committed to Georgia. Washington picked Georgia over offers from Arkansas, Florida State, Georgia Tech, N.C. State, Oregon, UCF and West Virginia. The Grovetown, Georgia native who is 6-foot and 170 pounds is not yet rated by the 247Sports Composite.
The son of former 4-star linebacker Marcus Washington, who played for Mark Richt after starring at Burke County High School, Washington Jr. emerged after running multiple 4.46 40-yard dash times at MVP Camp in April, Dawgs247 reported. He received a Georgia offer a week later. Washington Jr. has also posted a 10.76 100-meter dash, 44 foot, 3 inch triple jump, and 21-foot long jump this spring.
Washington Jr. joins Graceville (Fla.) 4-star wide receiver Daquayvious Sorey, South Walton (Santa Rosa Beach, Fla.) 4-star tight end Pearce Spurlin, and McEachern (Powder Springs, Ga.) defensive tackle Seven Cloud among Georgia’s 2023 class of commitments.
