Marshall’s Tahj Washington Offered By Sam Houston State
A new offer has arrived for one of East Texas' uncommitted recruits in the 2019 class.
Marshall senior receiver Tahj Washington reported via Twitter on Wednesday that he has added an offer from Sam Houston State.
Washington (5-11, 170) also holds offers from 13 other Division I programs -- Air Force, Bowling Green, Kansas, Louisiana, Memphis, Southern Miss, Stephen F. Austin, Texas State, Tulane, Tulsa, Arkansas-Pine Bluff, Houston Baptist, and McNeese State.
Sam Houston also offered Pine Tree 2019 TE and Texas State commit Keshon Williams on Tuesday.
Washington is the leading receiver this season for Marshall. He enters the week with 38 catches for 685 yards and nine touchdowns. He also has rushed for 285 yards and three touchdowns.
In last week's 63-24 area-round playoff win over Nederland, Washington had just one catch for 17 yards but returned a kickoff 91 yards for a touchdown as part of the Mavericks' 50-point, second-half eruption.
Washington and his Marshall (10-2) teammates face Huntsville (11-1) in a Class 5A Division II, Region III semifinal at 8 p.m. Saturday from the Ford Center in Frisco.
Sam Houston State in a national power at the FCS level. The Bearkats were 6-5 overall and 5-4 in the Southland Conference in 2018, but played in the national semifinals in each of the previous four seasons.
Washington, like all seniors, is first eligible to sign with any program that offers him on Dec. 19.
