He made a promise to play college football at LSU prior to his senior year, but ultimately changed his mind and will now play for Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, Texas.
Washington switched to safety as a true freshman at TCU in 2018 and participated in four games for the TCU Horned Frogs to save his redshirt.
He had a breakthrough year as a redshirt freshman in 2019, earning a starting position toward the end of the year and leading the team with five interceptions, the most by a rookie in Gary Patterson’s time at TCU.
Prior to his sophomore campaign in 2020, Dave Campbell’s Texas Football named Washington to the All-Texas College Team.
He was also recognized by ESPN[6,5], Pro Football Focus, and Dave Campbell’s Texas Football as the nation’s second-leading returning safety behind classmate Trevon Moehrig.
Additionally, CBS Sports predicted that he would be taken in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft.
Washington declared for the 2021 NFL Draft on December 29, 2020, saying he will forgo his last two seasons of college eligibility.
Washington joined the Baltimore Ravens on May 13, 2021, as an undrafted free agent. He was put on injured reserve after suffering a foot injury that would finish the season on November 27, 2021.
