One of the best safeties in the 2023 recruiting class has trimmed his list of schools down to 5.

The B1G is well represented yet again as 3 of the 5 schools on Elliot Washington’s list are from the conference. They are Ohio State, Penn State, and Michigan State. Those schools are followed closely by 2 SEC powerhouses in Alabama and Georgia.

Washington is ranked as the No. 32 player in his home state and the No. 18 safety nationally, per 247Sports Composite. He’s also the No. 178 player overall, regardless of position.

There are no crystal ball predictions in for Washington at this time but that should change whenever he announces his commitment date.

Before Washington announced his top 5, he had other offers from several Power 5 schools, which included Maryland, Nebraska, Georgia Tech, Indiana, Oklahoma, Ole Miss, South Carolina, Tennessee, etc.
