77 Days to Purdue Football: DJ Washington

Let’s meet another potential offensive line starter.

NCAA Football: Iowa at Purdue Sandra Dukes-USA TODAY Sports

With spikes of COVID-19 cases and positive tests for teams all across the country I am starting to have my doubts that we have a football season in the fall, but we still press on. Today we meet another possible starter on the offensive line.

DJ Washington - Jr.

Louisville, KY (Ballard HS)

6’4”, 295 pounds

Offensive Line

2020 Projection: Possible starter

Last season Washington was one of several casualties against Minnesota. In the game that cost us Rondale Moore and Elijah Sindelar Washington was also lost for the season with a broken leg. To that point he had played in three games, but he was still able to be an Academic all-Big Ten selection.

This season Washington is in line for one of the starting spots up front. He had some promise before his injury last season and coupld play at one of the guard sports. In a season where seemingly four spots are up for grabs up front he will have every chance to seize one of them.
