The big reason Darnell Washington made a leap for Georgia football: ‘He pushes and makes plays’

ATHENS — Georgia tight end Darnell Washington readily admits he didn’t do a lick of blocking as a 5-star recruit coming out of Desert Pines High School in the 2020 recruiting class.

“In high school, I didn’t block at all,” Washington told reporters this week. “Let’s be real.”

As a junior, that is now Washington’s calling card. Fellow giant Amarius Mims called Washington a freak. Brock Bowers lights up when discussing Washington’s blocking prowess.

Georgia coach Kirby Smart can’t seem to stop praising Washington and how he has grown as both a player and a person.
