WVU Adds Highly Sought Receiver To Its Commitment List

West Virginia’s football program gained a commitment from a big receiver who picked the Mountaineers over a bevy of other powerhouse offers.

Devell Washington is a 6-foot-4, 215-pound receiver from Central High School in Bay City, Michigan, who had gotten plenty of attention from schools closer to home. A few days ago he trimmed his list down to an impressive five with Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State, Purdue and West Virginia making the cut. Saturday he sliced the list down to one – WVU.

Washington, who visited Morgantown in late February, becomes the third commitment for Neal Brown’s recruiting class of 2020, joining Boyle County (Ky.) High School receiver Reese Smith and Tallahassee Chiles (Fla.) High quarterback Garrett Greene.

Washington is a combination of size and speed. Competing for the Central High Wolves in track last year, he ran an 11.23 100-meter dash and a 23.11 200. Each of those times would have placed him in the top eight in West Virginia’s state Class AAA track championships last spring.

As a junior last season for a Bay Central team that finished 2-7, Washington hauled in 23 catches for 237 yards and one TD. He also had 19 rushing attempts for an additional 117 yards and two scores.
