Kyle Washington, a senior power forward from Brewster Academy, has narrowed his college list to four. His final list includes N.C. State, Washington, Baylor and Ohio State, according to Benjamin Worgull of

The 6'8" big man has offers from 19 different Division-I colleges from all over the country, including Louisville, Florida, Memphis, Xavier and West Virginia.

Washington is ranked the 96th-best player by and the 16th-best power forward in the 2013 class by says of the talented power forward, "Washington is an extra long and athletic lefty power forward that is oozing with potential. He runs the floor effortlessly. Can finish drop off passes created by dribble penetration on the break and in the half court with length not strength."

In his junior season at Hotchkiss School in Connecticut, Washington averaged 15 points and 10 rebounds. He recently transferred to Brewster Academy where he will play his senior season.

Washington's head basketball coach at Brewster Academy, Jason Smith, told me that he will be taking an official visit to N.C. State soon. N.C. State's coach Mark Gottfried and his coaching staff met with Washington at Brewster Academy earlier this week.

"Kyle is an excellent forward who can be successful at any program in the nation," Smith said. "He's a tremendous young man who would be a great asset to any college community and program."

North Carolina State had one of their best recruiting classes ever last year and is in the running for several talented prospects in the 2013 class. The Wolfpack do not have a commit yet for 2013.

Washington is planning on visiting Baylor this Saturday.

According to Coach Jason Smith, Washington does not have a time-line for a decision.
