Hunter Washington, who entered the transfer portal at Florida State 10 days ago, has announced his commitment to play in the SEC.

Washington announced on social media that he committed to Mississippi State. He was a 4-star cornerback out of Katy, Texas, and appeared in the 2021 matchup against the University of Massachusetts, but did not record any stats. Washington appeared mostly on the scout team he was redshirted shortly after and became the scout team special teams player of the year, Tomahawk Nation reported. But he appeared to be passed on the depth chart with the Seminoles and is looking for a chance at more playing time elsewhere.

The 5-foot-11 and 178-pounder was rated the No. 19 cornerback in the country in the class of 2021, according to the 247Sports Composite. He had a reported 29 offers coming out of high school.

Two other freshman corners — Omarion Cooper and Kevin Knowles II — carved out starting roles by the end of the 2021 campaign. This spring, Washington pushed to get into the two-deep but the emergence of rookies Azareye’h Thomas and Sam McCall probably signified that Washington’s ability to start at FSU in the near future was limited, Noles247 reported.
