"I will take an official visit to Oregon when they play Boise State this Saturday," Armstrong said. "I'm not going to take any other visits. I think that Oregon is the place for me.
"I'm going to become a Duck," Armstrong said. "I'm going to commit to Oregon on my visit."
"I have talked to all of Oregon's coaches," Armstrong said. "They are nice and wonderful to talk to. They are the coaches I want to play for and Eugene is the place I want to be.
"Oregon works perfectly for me," Armstrong said. "The academics are good and I can't wait to get there. It feels like Christmas Eve."
The Ducks get a player who has outstanding feet and technique. He is potentially the best offensive lineman to ever come out of McQueen and that is quite a statement. The Ducks recruited Armstrong as a guard.
As a junior, Armstrong earned all-league, all-region and all-state from his offensive guard position. He also took the state in wrestling as a junior.
In the weight room, Armstrong's current bench is 330, his squat is an impressive 550 and he also has a solid power clean of 315.
The Ducks win the services of Armstrong over other offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Cal, San Diego State, UNLV, Nevada, Boise State, and Colorado.
Armstrong was selected to the Rivals.com Nevada Preseason Top 20 team for the class of 2009 landing as the Silver State's No. 7 prospect at any position.
