Xavier Washington has returned to town following his visit to Northwestern.
I thought we might hear one way or another on what his plans are tonight.
Washington told me in a message just a few minutes ago that he has not decided who he will sign with on Wednesday. More and more, it has looked like Northwestern is in the divers’ seat. Multiple people who cover Northwestern are reporting that the school is ready to offer him a full ride.
Washington has also told those same Northwestern beat guys that he is leaning toward signing with the school.
2014 DE Xavier Washington tells me he's leaning toward Northwestern. Decision coming shortly. Would be replacement for Noah Westerfield.

UNT and Houston are also in the hunt.
The fact that Washington left Northwestern without committing is a good sign for the Mean Green.
I would be shocked if UNT does not hang on until the last minute in the hope of landing him.
This could go down to signing day. UNT still has a shot.
