It was a good week for Pasadena (Calif.) wide out Armon Binns. The receiver had a great game in the teams season opener last weekend and then picked up his first scholarship offer a few days later.
Binns, 6-2, 185 pounds has excellent size and hands and has worked hard on improving his speed over the last year. He ran a very respectable 4.72-40 at the NIKE Camp at USC but plays faster than that.
Pasadena kicked off their season last Friday and Binns had his coming out party. The athlete caught seven passes for 176 yards and three touchdowns including the game winner with 36 seconds left in the game as the Bulldogs defeated Harvard-Westlake 34-33.
His recruitment has definitely picked up since the Spring and his first offer came his way Tuesday night.
"Pat Hill at Fresno State called last night and offered a scholarship," Mark Binns, Armon's father said. "Nevada has also called this month and Oregon, Arizona and Washington are sending mail on a daily basis.
"Michigan, Utah, San Diego State and Colorado State have all requested transcripts as well so things are going good right now. Right now, Armon is planning to take all his trips and although we haven't set anything up yet, it looks good that we'll be visiting Fresno State, Oregon, Washington and Arizona."
Binns is the younger brother of former Oregon defensive back Marques Binns who is now playing in the Arena League.
