Gators get five-star safety Washington 

February, 18, 2012
The Florida Gators continued their hot streak in recruiting on Saturday, as five-star safety prospect Nick Washington (Jacksonville, Fla./Trinity Christian) committed to the Gators while on an unofficial visit to Florida for its junior day.

The 6-foot, 185-pound ESPNU 150 Watch List prospect said that after visiting Alabama, Auburn, South Carolina, Clemson, Florida State, Georgia and Georgia Tech this offseason he realized Florida is where he wants to be.

"Florida has always been the school I wanted to play for," Washington said. "I always watched them when I was young, and I just feel like this is the place for me. I've visited every school that I had in my top schools, and I definitely feel like Florida is the one for me."
