Atholton shooting guard Sean Washington is ready to enter into a starting role with the Raiders this season, and hopes to see his recruitment rise in the process.
Though he has heard from one Division III school, he says the rest of his college interest is coming in via his high school coach right now.
“My high school coach has told me about different schools that have been interested in me. But he doesn’t want to tell me which ones yet until I get late into my high school career, so that I focus more on playing and not so much on what school are looking at me,” said Washington.
“I’ve been told it’s mainly D3 schools, but that there’s a couple of D2 schools that are interested. And then over the summer I was contacted by Goucher College, I think it was their head coach.”
The talented 2017 says his recruitment, and his future, is something he thinks about often.
“Every time I step on the court I’m always hoping whatever I’m doing at that time will help me get to where I would like to go,” he said. “And my future does really have an influential role on me right now.”
"This offseason Washington spent his time playing with a talented Maryland 3D squad, and says his defense was much-improved.
“I noticed a big improvement this offseason playing defense -- on-ball defense, help defense,” said Washington. “I think that definitely is the best thing I can bring to a team now, and was definitely my best improvement this summer.”
With his defensive skill-set in place, Washington says his jump-shot will be his next area of emphasis.
“Offensively I like to make sure that everybody gets involved, and if I get the chance to score, I can shoot the ball or go strong to the basket and try and get a foul or put the ball in the hoop,” he said.
“For me to be able to play at the next level though, I feel I really need to work on my jump-shot, and that’s what I’ve really been working towards between AAU season and this upcoming junior season.”
