Tight End Jacory Washington from Westlake HS in Westlake, Louisiana, officially signed his letter of intent to LSU.
Washington (6'5", 220) is an athletic TE that garnered Under Armour All-American honors. 247 Sports Composite rankings considers him the #184 prospect in the nation, ranking him 4th amongst TEs and 13th in the state of Louisiana. He chose LSU over offers from Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Arkansas and a host of other national programs.
Washington is a big, athletic TE prospect that could emerge as an immediate receiving threat in the LSU offense. While Washington's blocking will remain a work in progress, his size, speed and natural receiving prospects may make him a candidate for early playing time in an LSU offense that is searching for receiving talent. At this juncture he looks more the part of a jumbo-WR than a true TE.
