DC athlete set to hit camp circuit

Washington (D.C.) Dunbar athlete Jharron Armstrong is preparing to take nearly a half dozen unofficial visits in the near future. The 6-foot-2, 187-pounder plans to visit three schools this week.
"I'm getting ready to go to camps," he said. "I'm going to make a North Carolina tour this weekend and visit North Carolina, NC State and Duke. I'm also looking at attending Maryland's camp next Friday and I believe I'm going to Connecticut's camp too. I may attend some more also.
"On those visits, I know most coaches want to check out and make sure I am 6-foot-2 and see how much I weigh. They also want to see if I'm physical and am able to turn and run with wide receivers."
The D.C. athlete still holds a lone offer from Syracuse, but believes more scholarships may come after camp visits.
"I believe Maryland might offer if I come to camp," he said. "Connecticut is also talking about it and then I've been talking to the coaches at North Carolina a lot and they may offer too."
With one offer and potentially more coming, Armstrong has a few schools standing out.
"Of course Syracuse is leading because coach White is showing me a lot of love," he said. "I also like Minnesota since they are staying in touch and then I've been talking to coach Thigpen from UNC. He has big expectations for me at camp."
As for a decision, it could be coming soon for Armstrong.
"I'll probably do it after I attend a few camps. I am looking at doing it this summer."
