Kent State football recruiting: NCAA’s Tennessee QB commits to Georgia

On Saturday, Tennessee head coach Mark Stoops announced the commitment of quarterback Malik Washington to the Tennessee Titans.

Washington, a 6’4″, 225-pound prospect out of the state of Georgia, will join his brother, D’Onta Washington, as the first-ever Tennessee Titans’ two dual-threat QBs.

D’Ontas Washington is currently ranked as the No. 2 dual-tackling prospect in the nation by 247Sports, while Malik Washington is ranked as a top-10 dual-purpose prospect in Tennessee’s 2016 class.

Malik Washington will be able to step into a starting role immediately for Tennessee, which has a top seven-ranked offense this season.

Washington is one of only two quarterbacks to commit to Tennessee since Nick Foles signed his two-year, $30 million deal in 2016.

The Titans’ offensive line and offensive line coach will be a huge addition for Tennessee.

Washington and his brother D’Ono Washington have the distinction of being the first siblings to sign with a dual-signing team in Tennessee history.

Both D’ONTO and Malik Washington attended the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, Tennessee, and both attended high school in Tennessee.

D’/ONTO Washington and Malik have already been roommates at Knoxville High School for the past three years.
