P.J. Washington is ready for the Kentucky life.
He will be on campus June 6th to start his career with Kentucky.
My predication: he’s one of the most underrated players in his class.
Here’s his last USA Today blog post:
What’s up, it’s P.J. Washington and I’m closing out my blog with USA Today.
I’m officially a high school graduate!
Graduation was a great experience, just being able to see everyone for the last time and being with my family and friends.
I report to Kentucky on June 6 and I can’t wait.
I just want to improve in every area. I want to add strength so I’ll definitely be in the weight room. I want to be able to run faster and jump higher too so I’ll be putting in the work to get that done.
Of course we’ll have a lot of high expectations next season with the class that we’ve got coming in, but that’s nothing new for Kentucky and I know all of the guys are used to having a lot expected out of them.
That’s part of the reason we come to Kentucky.
I think the sooner we get down there and build that chemistry the better off we’ll be in the long run. I just want us all to be on the same page from day one.
I honestly feel like if we’re all playing the way we’re capable of then no one can beat us.
At Kentucky, if you don’t win the national championship, then it’s a disappointment; I feel like if we listen to Coach Cal we’ll be fine.
Looking back on my high school the three things that I know I’ll remember for the rest of my life are the Jordan Brand Classic, the McDonald’s All American Game and the DICK’s Nationals my senior year; all three events were great and I made a lot of memories with a lot of the players in my class and my teammates.
My ONLY regret is that I didn’t win a national title in high school, but I’ll try again in college.
OK, everyone I want to thank you for reading my blog over this last year and for the support.
I want you to keep that going when I’m at Kentucky next season and I’ll see you guys soon.
