just picked up James Washington
out of Winter Park, Fla., and while the 6-foot-2, 220-pounder is listed as a defensive end, he definitely falls into the hybrid category. Washington, who had around 20 scholarship offers upon committing, is very nimble with his hand off the ground and we have a feeling that will lead to the Orange being able to get very creative with their defensive schemes and doing what they do best, getting to the quarterback.
Winter Park High School defensive end James Washington became a member of the 2012 recruiting class for Syracuse this week and we recently got to check out some of his junior highlights. While Washington is listed as a defensive end, it's his versatility and athleticism in space that will make him most valuable.
Syracuse fans can get a little taste of James Washington rushing the passer inside.
