Penn State Basketball in Contact With Ohio State Decommit George Washington III

Penn State is one of many schools that have reached out to Class of 2023 basketball standout George Washington III from Chaminade Julienne in Dayton, Ohio, since Washington decommitted from Ohio State Monday.

Other schools that have reached out are Alabama, Auburn, Cincinnati, Dayton, Louisville, Memphis, Missouri, Pitt, Oklahoma, Seton Hall, Tennessee, Texas and Wake Forest.

Washington is a 6-foot-2, 165-pound combo guard originally from Louisville, Kentucky but transferred after his father got a job as an assistant coach for the Dayton Flyers women’s basketball team.

Washington is the number two player in Ohio, the number nine shooting guard, and the No. 76 player nationally, according to 247Sports composite ratings. He originally committed to Ohio State last November.

Washington is a skilled shooter and scorer, especially from the three-point line. Washington averaged 23.4 points, and 7.2 rebounds per game and shot 35 percent from the three-point line. He is named first-team All-State in Kentucky.

He played with fellow Ohio State commit Devin Royal on the All-Ohio Red AAU team that finished 4-4 at the Nike Elite Youth Basketball League, where he averaged 14.0 points, 2.3 rebounds, 1.5 assists, and 1.5 steals. He shot 31 percent from three and 91 percent from the foul line.

If Penn State were to land Washington, he will join guards Logan Imes, Braeden Shrewsberry, and Carey Booth in Penn State’s 2023 recruiting class.
