Texas State dealt potential recruiting blow

Offers are heating up for this growing receiver but just because Texas State was the first, doesn't mean they will ultimately win this battle.

Wide receiver James Washington, who is putting on weight and getting stronger for his senior season, received an offer from Oklahoma State yesterday and Houston just hours ago, his second and third offers, receptively.

For a while, the Bobcats had been the only school to offer Washington, who is a serious playmaker in the open field. He runs a 4.4 40 but plays bigger than his 5'11" stature. In a recent interview with Scout.com's Terry Tush, Washington said Oklahoma State's stadium was "the best stadium I've ever seen."

"Texas State is a great school and I see them getting better in the next two to three years, maybe even next year," Washington said. "Oklahoma State is good right now. They has better equipment and facilities. I'm closer to verbally committing to them than Texas State at this point."

Stamford won the Class-A championship this past year, finishing 14-1. Washington contributed 1,147 receiving yards and 22 touchdowns his junior year. Washington is looking to improve his speed, vertical and route running the most heading into his final season with the Bulldogs.

Other interested colleges include Sam Houston State, TCU, Texas Tech and Texas A&M.

A committal could come any day for Washington who may be leaving the small town of Stamford for the smaller Sooner State.
