Oklahoma State’s James Washington is looking to be one of the top receiving threats in the Big 12 this fall. The 6-0/205 junior was a Second Team All-Conference selection in 2015 and is the only returning 1.000 yard receiver in the Big 12 this fall.
Washington set career highs for receptions in a game (7), receiving yards in a game (200) and longest reception (74 yards) over the course of last season. Now he returns as the most seasoned and potentially the most dangerous wide out the Big 12 has to offer in 2016.
Coming out of Samford High School, TX, Washington earned scholarship offers from Texas, TCU, Texas Tech and Texas State before ultimately deciding to spend his college years in Stillwater, Oklahoma.
It didn’t take long for him to make an impact on the field during his freshman season (2013) as Washington joined Dez Bryant, Marcellus Rivers and Hart Lee Dykes as the only freshmen in OSU history to post a 100-yard receiving day. He also led the team that season in touchdown receptions with six.
