George Washington’s Workman commits to Army

George Washington High School safety/outside linebacker Duran Workman committed to the United States Military Academy last Sunday, according to Workman’s coach Steve Edwards.

Workman, who is listed at six-feet and 195-pounds, recorded sixty-eight tackles, two interceptions and three fumble recoveries during the 2009 season and has played an important role on this year’s undefeated Patriots team.   

He also considered the Virginia Military Institute.

Edwards praised his star defender for being “just a smart kid. He really has a good head on his shoulders.”

Edwards said he and Workman visited West Point over the summer and “just loved it there.” This season, the Black Knights are 5-4 and, with three games left, have already matched their win total from 2009.

Workman’s verbal to Army is the second major commitment by a Patriot this year. Tight end Cody Clay committed to West Virginia over the summer.

Edwards also said running back Felix Mollett has been getting some attention from Shepherd University and West Virginia State, but has not received any offers yet. Mollett is undersized at 5-foot-5, 170-pounds, but Edwards describes the back as a “violent runner with great balance and strength.”

Mollett is also a front-runner for the prestigious Kennedy Award, given to the top high school football player in West Virginia.

No. 1 George Washington takes on No. 16 Logan Friday night in the first round of the playoffs.
