Notre Dame impacts 2024 standout pass catcher David Washington

The 2024 wide receiver board continued to expand for Notre Dame last week, including a bid extended to Las Vegas (Nev.) Arbor View wide receivers DavidWashington. Washington, one of the most talented athletes in the West, recently had its top school roster trimmed.

However, the Nevada native made it clear that Notre Dame isn’t too late. You will take a long look at a bevy of notable programs.

“My recruiting has been good overall,” Washington said. “I recently narrowed my choice of schools down to 11 schools, but I have Coach (Chansi) pieces know that I am still 100 percent open to all possibilities.”

These 11 schools included LSU, Michigan, Texas A&M, Oregon, Michigan State, Utah, Ole Miss, UCLA, Cal, Oregon State and UNLV. This list looks like it could get jumbled up quickly. This latest offer from Notre Dame also seemed to be having an effect.

“When I received the Notre Dame offer, I was very happy and shocked!” he explained. “Coach Stuckey and I had some great conversations leading up to the offer and it led to a great moment.

“I’ve never had the opportunity to come to South Bend,” Washington continued. “But I definitely plan to make it there in the spring or next summer.”

The Irish still have some time to get into the group, but they must act quickly. Washington is keeping its options open for a few months, but things will continue to get hectic. There is a fixed schedule.

“I plan to commit before the start of last year,” Washington noted. “I also plan to enroll early, so I’m looking forward to figuring out the process and finding the right school.”

Washington is almost unanimously recruited four stars by all major recruiting platforms. The exception is On3, who ranked him as the #77 wide receiver class, and by that logic, the 2024 recruit class must be the lowest year for pass catchers in history.

ESPN is Washington’s best, ranking him as the No. 224 overall player and No. 31 wide receiver in the class. This ranking also has him as the top ranked player in the state or Nevada.

The 6-0, 185-pound pass catcher has an incredibly impressive offering list. Notable programs that have been offered include Fighting Irish, Michigan, LSU, Miami, Oregon, Texas A&M, Utah, Michigan State, Oregon State, Ole Miss, UCLA, Washington State, Arizona State, Cal, Colorado and Other Arizona.

During his junior year for Arbor View, Washington led the team for 826 yards and seven touchdowns on 52 receptions. That’s an average of 15.9 yards per reception, plus another 74 yards and a touchdown on the floor.
