Former Ohio State Buckeye Adolphus Washington is looking to move onto the NFL as his collegiate career ended just a tad bit too early, thanks to his own doing. He was arrested for solicitation just days before the team’s Fiesta Bowl, for which the Buckeyes suspended him.
On Wednesday, Washington plead guilty to the crime for which he was accused, making it seem like he will have a rough go of things the next few weeks.
“It’s the standard plea offer for anyone in his situation,” Washington’s attorney, Phil Templeton, told The Columbus Dispatch. “He isn’t getting any special treatment.”
Washington has high hopes of playing in the NFL and has even accepted an invitation to next week’s Reese’s Senior Bowl in Mobile, Alabama. It’s not clear if this guilty plea will affect his status in the game.
Washington finished the 2015 season with four sacks and seven tackles for loss, making him the 77th-ranked overall prospect in 2016 NFL Draft and giving him a third-fourth round grade.
