ESPN No. 11 ranked high school senior and Kentucky commit P.J. Washington says that the Wildcats will be unstoppable next year.


“I honestly feel like if we’re all playing the way we’re capable of then no one can beat us,” Washington told USA Today. “At Kentucky, if you don’t win the national championship, then it’s a disappointment; I feel like if we listen to Coach Cal [John Calipari] we’ll be fine.”


“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,” added Washington. “That’s part of the reason we come to Kentucky.”


Washington, a 6-8 forward out of Findlay College Prep (Las Vegas), led his Nike EYBL squad Team Penny in scoring and rebounding last season, averaging 17.4 points and 10.9 rebounds.


He will be part of a loaded 2017 Kentucky recruiting class that also includes No. 9 Kevin Knox, No. 16 Nick Richards, No. 18 Jarred Vanderbilt, No. 23 Quade Green, No. 33 Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, No. 64 Jemarl Baker, and NYC shooting guard Hamidou Diallo.


Washington says he’s ready to put the hard work in to ensure that he and the team are successful next season.


“I report to Kentucky on June 6 and I can’t wait,” said Washington. “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.”
