HUNTERSVILLE – SouthLake Christian running back Robert Washington Jr., a freshman, has received his third college scholarship offer.

 Arizona State offered Washington after he visited the campus last week. The offer was extended by Aztecs coach Mike Norvell.

 Washington, who committed to Mississippi State last November, also received an offer from Mississippi. He’s a 5-foot-11, 180 pounder who rushed for 1,017 yards and 11 touchdowns in 11 games last season.

 Washington battled a hip injury during the first half of his freshman season, but returned with rushing games of 151, 155, 163 and 165 yards in consecutive weeks. He averaged 11.4 yards per carry during the season.
