Three-star athlete Jharron Armstrong out of Washington (D.C.) Dunbar made his college choice last week. The 6-foot-2, 187-pounder has decided to take his services to an independent.
"I committed to Kent State last Thursday I believe," he said. "I talked to several coaches there after I went up on a visit. I had a good time and saw that they are a program on the rise.
"Several of their defensive backs told me I'll get a chance to play if I put in hard work during the offseason. I'm looking to be a great playmaker at safety for them and look to help them to a bowl next year."
Are there any other reasons Armstrong selected Kent?
"The fact they have several guys from Dunbar that have come out of there and been successful in life has been important," he said. "I also like the coaches. I'm pretty cool with their defensive coordinator. I have a great bond with him and the other coaches."
As mentioned earlier, the No. 3 prospect in D.C. will get his chance for immediate playing time as a true freshman next season.
Armstrong picked Kent over offers from Akron, Toledo and Syracuse.
