Dunbar ATH receiving major interest

Rivals250 defensive tackle Reggie Ellis isn't the only player to watch in 2008 from Washington (D.C.) Dunbar. Athlete Jharron Armstrong is getting some major Division I looks as well according to head coach Craig Jeffries.
"A few schools are taking a special interest in him including Connecticut, Maryland, Cincinnati, Michigan State, Virginia and Virginia Tech," he said. "I know he really likes Virginia and Virginia Tech a lot.
"I know Virginia Tech stands out because they have been known to use a lot of athletes in their schemes. He knows he could go to a school like that and play on the field there in a variety of positions. As for Maryland and Virginia, he likes them because of the location. They are popular in this area."
Armstrong plans to participate in the Nike Camp in Baltimore. He's also looking at heading to the Elite College Combine in New Jersey.
The 6-foot-2, 190-pounder posted an impressive six interceptions as a junior.
"Last year he was used primarily as our quarterback, but in college he's likely a defensive back," Jeffries said. "He likes to come up and strike you. He delivered a few knockout shots this year putting guys down. He's got a defensive mentality, great football instincts and ball skills. He also breaks on the ball really well and takes good angles.
"He could also be a special, tall physical wide receiver. He's got great hands, runs good routes and understands offensive schemes."
