Welcome to the U, Keshawn Washington

A talented and versatile local defender circles back and commits to the U for a 2nd time

Welcome back home, KW

Miami got a familiar face back in the 2020 recruiting class today when Homestead (FL) South Dade 4-star DB Keshawn Washington re-committed to the hometown Canes.

A tall and long defender at 6’2” 177lbs, Washington plays S in HS and is viewed by Miami as a “defensive athlete” who can line up in a number of positions. Washington previously committed to Miami on the same day as his HS teammate CB Jaiden Francois, but decommitted from the Canes during the late-season losing streak. Like Francois, who re-committed to Miami just before NSD in February, Washington is back in the boat with The U.

Obviously, pairing Washington and Francois together (along with the other players in this class) is a good thing for Miami. The pair have played together for years, and that camaraderie helps their performance on the field. If Francois and Washington can approach the success that former optimist and HS teammates Jaquan Johnson and Sheldrick Redwine had in college at Miami, that would be a big, big win for the Canes.

Washington is the 4th DB in Miami’s 2020 recruiting class. He joins HS teammate Jaiden Francois, Rockledge (FL) ATH Ladarius Tennison, and Amite (LA) DB Daran Branch at this position group in this class.
