        Prep Blog: Pleasant Grove lineman Armstead receives another major scholarship offer

        Pleasant Grove lineman Armstead receives another major scholarship offer

        Arik Armstead is only a junior, but he's firm on the radar of national football recruiting radars.

        The 6-foot-7, 270-pound Pleasant Grove High School two-way lineman was offered a scholarship this week by Florida. Last week it was Alabama. The week before it was Notre Dame. Over the summer it was USC.

        Here's why: The kid can dominate, he's athletic, powerful, instinctive, a superb student, a quality young man with tremendous upside.

        In other words, a major coup for the team that lands him.

        I have seen him take charge on the offensive line, chase down quarterbacks, block punts. His teammates love him, his coaches enjoy working with him, his teachers appreciate his leadership and academic focus.

        And to think that his best sport might just be basketball. Scary.
        I heard it from a reliable source.

            Yeah they do have a ton of DL for sure. Last I heard too, they were having a few issues with players whining about playing time and all if I recall correctly. So much talent down there and it would be very hard to get any quality playing time.

                Is defesive lineman Armond Armstead from USC a relative of Arik ? cause if so, what do they feed these boyz these days !! geeeezzzz Armond (20) 6'5 295 ~ Arik (17) 6'7 280 !! I was just thinking they might be brothers or cousins or something like that since Arik is a soft USC verbal, he might want to play with family on the team.

                  Yes. ESPN reported they are related. Brothers I believe.

                    Very tough get, but it is still very very early.

                    He has taken multiple trips to USC already and his loves the idea of playing with his brother. He has been to a handful of him brothers games and loves the campus and LA area.

                    Hopefully we can have a decent defense and record next year, otherwise I don't see us getting him.

                        that's funny cause that's who i thought of first too, Jesse is way older like in his early 40's, i don't think he was from California though, i think he was from Texas. But yeah i know that doesn't rule them out of being family so i guess there is a chance they are related.



                        Oh i found this too ....... it's from earlier in the year, so who knows, i know there is definitely time for him to de-commint from USC, im just posting what i read.

                        USC football: Arik Armstead commits to Trojans despite NCAA sanctions
                        June 19, 2010 | 6:12 pm
                        Well, so much for that anticipated chilling effect on USC recruiting.

                        USCFootball.com reports that the Trojans have received a verbal commitment from Arik Armstead, a 6-foot-7, 270-pound two-sport standout from Elk Grove, Calif.,who is the brother of USC defensive lineman Armond Amstead.

                        Arik Armstead is a member of the class of 2012. He plans to play football and basketball for the Trojans.

                        The news comes less than two weeks after the NCAA hit USC with major sanctions that include a two-year bowl ban and the loss of 30 scholarships over three years. The school has said it will appeal the penalties.

                        "It's unfortunate my brother and his teammates are getting penalized for something they had nothing to do with," Armstead told USCfootball.com. "I have no worries, though. Hopefully in two years, none of that will affect me."

                            Seems like they (Nevada) have a decent shot.

                              From ESPN:
                              USC commit checking out Nevada

                              Thanks to our colleagues at CBB Rumor Central for pointing out this story on SilverandBlueSports.com: ESPNU 150 Watch List OT Arik Armstead, the nation's top prospect according to Scout.com and 247Sports.com, claims that he will take a visit to Nevada in the coming weeks to check out the Wolf Pack's basketball program.

                              We expect, however, that Armstead is only doing this as a favor to Nevada coach David Carter, who is a good friend of Armstead's father. (Carter apparently also gave Armstead his first offer for basketball.) Armstead has already said that he plans to play both football and basketball at USC (his brother, Armond, is a senior DL for the Trojans). Moreover, when Arik committed to USC in June 2010, Guss Armstead totally backed his son's decision; would Papa Armstead suddenly steer Arik to a family friend?

                              This is a nice p.r. bump for Nevada's basketball team, but USC fans shouldn't worry.

                                As long as USC doesn't get him, I will chortle.

                                  It will affect him for all 4-5 years at U$C. 10 scholarships per year will decrease the talent pool at USC for at least 5 years. And that is only if the Condoms can stay "clean" for that time period. They should have received the "Death" penalty.

                                    What's the point of a condom if it stays clean?

                                                Having Golson playing both sports can't hurt our chances.

                                                      That's a pretty good basketball lineup in terms of athletic ability and power - don't know how good they are skill wise.

                                                          Don't forget Banner who I think is in the same boat as Armstead in both sports
                                                          Imagine that as a Bookstore team.

                                                          Team "Oh Nooo!"

                                                                Dad had issues and couldn't make the trip... so now he has no ride to South Bend from Indy while playing in his AAU tournament. Arik and family insist they have legit interest in ND and are going to try to visit at some point... maybe OV for the USC game.

                                                                Basketball is going to be a HUGE factor here. Having the national Coach of the Year can only help us... and help us a lot.

                                                                If that's too much sharing, someone please edit out. Thanks.

                                                                            Joe Bradshaw July 8

                                                                            Arik Armstead, DE, 6-6, 275, Pleasant Grove High School, Elk Grove, CA is currently a verbal commit to USC but he is still trying to sort through the recruiting process. Specifically, he is trying to determine which schools are being truthful with him and which ones aren’t. The issue of truthfulness surrounds Armstead’s desire to play basketball as well as football at the next level. He is rated as a high three-star recruit in basketball.

                                                                            “The people who are seriously recruiting me for basketball and football are going to have the highest chance,” Armstead said. “I’m trying to figure out which ones are serious or not.”

                                                                            Notre Dame definitely seems serious about allowing Armstead to do both.

                                                                            “I’ve been talking to coach (Mike) Denbrock on Facebook and stuff,” said the talented Californian. “He said he’s been talking to the basketball program and my AAU coach went up there and talked to them too.”

                                                                            ...

                                                                            Armstead was hoping to make a trip to South Bend after an AAU basketball tournament in Indianapolis this weekend, but his father wasn’t able to come with him and he’ll have to wait until official-visit season to see Notre Dame up close.

                                                                            Armstead’s brother Armond currently plays defensive line for USC and his parents were in South Bend for the 2009 Notre Dame-USC game.

                                                                            “They said Notre Dame is real nice and it’s very historic and that’s what they liked about it,” explained Armstead. “I’m just trying to get a good feel of the campus and getting a better relationship with the coaching staff. Every place is going to have a beautiful campus.”

As for his 40 and shuttle times, I think these probably underestimate his mobility if we're talking about a very good high school basketball player.

That is a MUST. If they go 9-3 or better, forget about him. This is a contingency plan for him. He loves USC - says it all the time. But it's obvious he wants an escape clause in case Kiffin is as bad as we all know he is.

                                                                                                    I don't see him being Irish personally, unless our team makes it 'cool' to be Irish again...and that means kicking some major azz this year, with our basketball team showing him a lot of love as well. Gotta put in some major work to get this kid, and even then I'm skeptical. Hope you're right TT...
