IOWA CITY, Iowa – The Iowa football team needs help on offense and help is on the way from the state of Texas.
Terrell Washington Jr., a 3-star athlete from Wylie, Texas, who was previously committed to Purdue, announced his commitment to Iowa Tuesday on Twitter.
The 5-foot-11, 185-pounder reportedly has over a dozen scholarship offers from schools that include Houston, Memphis, Vanderbilt and Washington State.
Washington’s commitment comes just a day before the start of the early signing period on Wednesday.
Washington could play either running back or receiver for Iowa, although, he is expected to start his career as a running back for the Hawkeyes.
Washington rushed for 598 yards and caught 604 yards in passes while scoring 22 touchdowns for Wylie East High School this past season.
Washington decided to re-open his recruitment shortly after Jeff Brohm resigned as the Purdue head coach to become the head coach at Louisville, which is Brohm’s alma mater.
Washington is believed to be the 22nd player to commit to Iowa’s 2023 class.
