After an eventful Paradise Camp Saturday night, the Hurricanes ended it perfectly with a commitment from 2020 3-star OT Chris Washington out of Overtown High School in Nashville (TN).

Washington is massive, standing at 6-7 and weighing 269 pounds. Offensive line coach Butch Barry compared him to a young Eric Fisher.

Washington is the third offensive lineman to join the 2020 class, which now ranks seventh in the nation. He stands alongside Orange Park (FL) Jalen Rivers and Vanguard (FL) Antonio Smith. Rivers and Washington are the two tackles.

The mammoth from Nashville received his offer from Miami just on Tuesday, and was expected to choose Ole Miss. He also had offers from Indiana, Wake Forest and Cincinnati.
