Armond and Arik Armstead are back at their California home tonight, mulling over the decision on what school they will enroll (in the next few days) for the Spring semester!
It appears the race is down to Notre Dame or Auburn -- with many feeling pretty good about ND's chances. Here's why ND fans should be excited about this pending news:
- Armond Armstead -- is a USC grad who was not cleared to play football this past season for the Trojans due to a medical situation. Armond is a 6'-5" 290 lb. defensive lineman. He started 17 games for USC, primarily at the defensive end position. After Armond's junior year at USC, he was rated as a second or third round NFL pick. Armond has one year of eligibility remaining.
- Arik Armstead -- is rated by Scout as the #1 OT prospect in the country and the #4 DL prospect in the country by Rivals. At 6'-8" and 275 lbs., Arik is also being recruited by ND's basketball coach Mike Brey to player power forward for the Irish. Arik is a big-time talent! Here's a link to his highlight video.
Here's a few links to some of the stories on their recruitment. Don't be surprised if we know as early as tomorrow if they're both IRISH! Stay tuned!!!
