As predicted three-star offensive guard Karrington Armstrong (6-2, 300, 5.0) from Reno (Nev.) McQueen pulled the trigger for his college choice over the weekend on his official visit.
"I did it," Armstrong said. "I committed to Oregon on my visit. I loved it at Oregon."
"I went up to Eugene having my expectations on what a college should be," Armstrong said. "And they exceeded my expectations by astronomical portions."
"I get up there (Oregon) on game day and even with all that pressure, the coaches and everyone involved with the program were nice," Armstrong said. "After the game I went to dinner with some coaches and my position coach Steve Greatwood was great."
"I like the way Coach Greatwood coaches the line," Armstrong said. "The whole offensive line is like a brotherhood and that's what I was looking for."
The reason that Armstrong arrived on game day was because, he was busy playing in his own game on Friday Evening helping McQueen high to victory over San Mateo (Calif.) Serra 24-7. This is the same Serra team that only lost by one point to Northern California powerhouse Concord (Calif.) De La Salle the week before.
"We just want to show them what Nevada football was all about," Armstrong said. "It was a great win for us."
Armstrong was recruited by Oregon to play offensive guard.
The Ducks get a player in Armstrong who earned all-league, all-region and all-state from his offensive guard position for his junior season. He also took the state in wrestling as a junior.
Armstrong was selected to the Rivals.com Nevada Preseason Top 20 team for the class of 2009 landing as the Silver State's No. 7 prospect at any position.
