LeVon Washington plans to spend a year at Chipola College before taking another spin at the MLB draft after he and the Rays couldn’t come to an agreement this week.

Washington told the Gainesville Sun today that he will attend the Panhandle junior college this school year and re-enter the draft in 2010.

“I’m ready for school and another chance for the draft,” Washington said in a text message to the Sun.

The second baseman/outfielder from Buchholz High in Gainesville had planned to play at Florida but didn’t qualify academically.
