Name: Xavione Washington
High School: Tampa Bay Tech
College: Committed to Bethune-Cookman
Bethune-Cookman is in for a treat with this young field general entering their Qb room. He stands 6'2" and weighs 190 lbs. He's a dual-threat Qb that can do it all. Xavione led his Tampa Bay Tech team to a 14-1 record, ultimately putting them in the FHSAA Class 7-A state championship game against South Florida powerhouse St. Thomas Aquinas. Xavione finished the year with 2,487 yards and 34 touchdowns. There are a few things that I liked about watching his film. Xavione has excellent pocket awareness and can sense where the pressure is coming from. Having this at a young age is a step in the right direction. His ball placement is outstanding. Xavione does well with throwing the back shoulder pass, throwing in between the windows, and putting the ball where his receiver can be the first person to it.
Another thing that stands out about Xavione is his pinpoint accuracy. The young man just doesn't miss when he's in rhythm. His receivers never have to sacrifice speed to catch the ball and have the chance to rack up some serious yardage after the catch. Xavione's quick release allows him to thread the needle and have impeccable timing when throwing. Last but not least, Xavione has an uncanny ability to throw off-platform and execute it efficiently. There isn't a throw that he can't make, and he showcases this on film. The one thing that I would like Xavione to execute better is protecting himself when running in the open field. He should know how to slide and give his body a chance to have longevity in this game.
