New Orleans Edna Karr defensive end Isaiah Washington needed only a little time with his LSU offer before pulling the trigger on a commitment to the Tigers.
Offered by LSU coach Les Miles late Saturday afternoon at the "Boys from the Boot" recruiting event, the Class of 2015 prospect wasn't immediately biting. But Washington's feelings changed in a hurry.
"I just committed," Washington told TigerBait.com. "At first when Les Miles offered me, I didn't want to commit. But the longer I sat in there and thought about what I was going to be a part of, I was like, 'I might as well. I like the surroundings and everything they have going on. I just committed. I'm a Tiger."
"I went back down stairs and watched 'Boys from the Boot,'" he said. "I saw all those great Louisiana players that played for them and what I was going to be a part of. I said, 'I might as well.' Coach Frank Wilson asked me if I wanted to be a Tiger and I said 'Yeah!'"
The three-star player is currently ranked No. 18 in the 2014 Louisiana Preseason Top 35.
