FSU head coach Mike Norvell, defensive coordinator Adam Fuller and defensive back coach Marcus Woodson got some good news earlier Tuesday when class of 2021 cornerback Hunter Washington announced via Twitter that he has committed to the Seminoles.
The 5-foot-11, 178-pound defensive back from Katy (TX) HS also considered offers from Arkansas, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Ole Miss, Texas and Texas A&M before giving his pledge to the FSU staff.
Washington is rated as a four-star prospect by 247Sports, who also has him ranked as the 16th-best cornerback prospect for the class of 2021 and the 37th-best overall prospect from Texas. He is the first defensive back committed to FSU for the class of 2021.
The rising senior shows good change of direction, very good feet and closes on the ball well based of his highlight tape. He understands where his run fits are in the quick passing game and leverages the wide receiver/ball carrier back to the inside where his help is coming from. Washington also show physicality from the corner position where he plays mostly off-coverage. Based off the limited tape on HUDL, Washington seems to be an ideal candidate at slot or nickel-corner.

Needless to say that Norvell was excited to get Washington’s commitment and get some momentum back on the recruiting trial as it pertains to commits for the 2021 class.
