Scott Frost continues building momentum at Nebraska.
On Wednesday, things got even better when 4-star RB Maurice Washington committed to the Huskers over Arizona State, among others. Washington, from Cedar Hill, Texas, is a big commitment for Frost, as he’ll be a difference-maker in the backfield.
Washington is ranked as the nation’s No. 10 overall RB and the state of Texas’ No. 26 overall prospect, according to 247Sports Composite Rankings.
Once Nebraska targeted Washington, it was relentless in its pursuit.
Frost and Nebraska were just enough to overcome new ASU head coach Herm Edwards, who still hasn’t landed a 4-star prospect in his first recruiting class. ASU was looking at Washington as a DB.
“I laid out the pros and cons and I really want to say that I did love Arizona State,” Washington said on ESPN 2 after announcing for the Cornhuskers. “Talking with Coach Frost, we had a lot of good conversations. Coach (Ryan) Held and Coach (Travis Fisher). Just the fact that playing running back would be the best opportunity for me to get where I want to go.
“Maybe I can be the face of the program and we can take this and go get a (national championship).”
