Ellijah Washington, a 5-foot-10, 165-pound athlete from Oakland (Calif.) Castlemont, committed to Oregon State on Sunday morning. Washington, who is now winding up his formal visit to Corvallis, revealed his committment on social media.

The Beavers are recruiting the versatile guy as a wide receiver, despite his stated position as an ATH. He had previously proclaimed a top three of Oregon State, California, and Arizona.

Wideouts coach Kefense Hynson, also from Oakland, has been keeping tabs on Washington’s recruitment, and their relationship is what distinguishes Oregon State.

 

“I have a relationship with Coach Fense, and he has been recruiting me since my freshman year. Since this will be my first time to Oregon State, I’m trying to get a sense of whether I can see myself there.”

The couple has developed a very deep relationship.

“He was honest and fair when he recruited me. He has also seen my development as a player since my freshman year. Also, he understands the wide receiver position very well; I appreciate how he breaks it down from a different perspective, which is something I cherished as a wide receiver.”
