UGA football

Warren Easton three-star defensive tackle Shone Washington has committed to the top-ranked Georgia Bulldogs for the 2022 class. He represents the 24th pledge for the Bulldogs.

The 6-foot-3, 297 pounder was a one-time commit to LSU, pledging on August 20, 2020. He but backed off of that pledge this past January.

With early signing period just a little over two weeks away on December 15, Washington considered offers from Georgia, LSU, Alabama, Texas A&M, Penn State, Tennessee, Florida, Arizona State, Virginia, Tulane, Ole Miss, USC, Texas, Memphis and Tulane. The recruiting responsibilities for UGA were handled by Bulldogs defensive line coach Tray Scott.

Washington is the 21st rated player in the state for 2022 by 247 Sports. I had him slotted as the seventh best player in the Greater New Orleans Metro area for this class.

In the 2020 class, Georgia signed four-star center Sedrick Van Pran, who was a teammate of Washington at Warren Easton. Van Pran has started every game at center this season for the No. 1 ranked Bulldogs.

Washington began his prep career as a freshman starter for the John Ehret Patriots, who advanced to the state semifianls that season. He is very powerful and fights through double team blocks. He had an outstanding showing at the IMG Academy camp earlier this year.
