Former Michigan DB Keith Washington announced his commitment to play for the West Virginia Mountaineers on Tuesday. Washington was at Michigan for a year and a half.
Washington spent this season at Copiah-Lincoln Junior College in Alabama. According to 247Sports, Washington is the No. 13 ranked cornerback. They rate him as a 3-star player. At only 6-foot-2 and 170 pounds he still has some room to add bulk to his frame.
He made his announcement on Twitter.
First I would like to thank God for allowing me to play the sport I love. I would also like to thank the CoLin coaching staff, the Michigan fans, and all the coaches who recruited me. I will be continuing my career at West Virginia University ????⚠️ #TakeMeHome18 pic.twitter.com/oQ2eRTY3pE

Trending: Why We Love Our Mountaineers
“Out of all the schools I visited, that one gave me the best feeling that felt like home to me,” Washington said of West Virginia. “That’s a national program, too.”
In high school Washington played quarterback. Upon arrival at Michigan he transferred to defense.
After leaving the program and returning to junior college, Washington had been hit with several offers. Some of the schools that offered include Memphis, Kansas and Texas Tech.
Washington mad some visits to SEC teams, including Alabama and Auburn, but as of yet he has not received any offers from those schools.
The Mountaineers are on a roll when it comes to secondary additions. Just last night 4-star Western Pennsylvania DB Kwantel Raines strengthened his commitment to come to Morgantown. Things are looking up in the Mountaineer secondary. Judging by the way they defended the Oklahoma passing attack, they will take all the help they can get.
