Armstrong on the verge of more offers

Three-star athlete Jharron Armstrong out of Washington (D.C.) Dunbar continues to hold one offer. The 6-foot-2, 187-pounder has a variety of other schools staying in touch who are considering offering.
"I talked to a lot of the coaches before the texting ban kicked in," he said. "They all let me know they'll be keeping in touch through mail. Most of them are looking forward to the first couple games and that is when they can make a decision. Those teams include North Carolina, Minnesota, Eastern Michigan, Ohio and Miami (Ohio). Ohio and Miami (Ohio) have even talked to me about unofficials for games this season."
Armstrong has at least one visit scheduled so far to Syracuse on September 15th.
"I just want to see the stuff around the campus," he said. "I want to find out how the fans and people around the area interact with the players. I want to see how much love they show the team and the type of environment that is there."
Is there a chance Armstrong could commit on the visit?
"I'm not sure," he said. "I don't want to do it too early and lose other options. I plan to wait a little bit and if nothing else pops up it could be a possibility.
"It's kind of hard to even say if there is a leader. Syracuse does the most since they've offered, but I don't have scholarships to pick from yet."
The No. 47 athlete in the country begins the season on Friday, August 24th in Ohio against Hoover.
"For us it's a pretty big game that can make a statement to our league," he said. "Everything is coming together and we're getting very strong on the depth chart. We're looking good and have playmakers making plays.
"I'm also starting to make more plays which is making it easier for my team. I'm trying to get teammates more involved too."
