Nike improves stock for DCs Armstrong

Two months ago Washington (D.C.) Dunbar athlete Jharron Armstrong picked up his first offer from Syracuse. Since then, the 6-foot-1, 181-pounder has stayed busy working out and participating in last week's Nike Camp at Penn State.
"That's the only combine I've been to and I did well," he said. "I thought it was very competitive and I enjoyed the environment up there seeing the top players.
"I know most coaches that I talked to before wanted me to show that I can be physical and jam the receiver. I mostly tried to do that, not allowing people to get off the line. It was a good experience and I think I got some solid work in."
At this time, Armstrong still holds a lone offer from the Orangemen, but other schools are discussing a scholarship.
"Most of the other schools want to see me at camp first and then they'll talk about an offer," he said. "Maryland liked me at Penn State and said if I come to camp I may get an offer there. UConn is talking about offering as is Akron, Northwestern and Eastern Michigan. All of those schools are catching my eye.
"But of course, Syracuse is sticking out a lot because they are showing tons of interest. Besides the offer, the coaches I've called are great."
This summer Armstrong is looking at heading to a few camps.
"I haven't made up my mind completely, but I may go to Maryland one day, probably Miami (Ohio) and then I'm supposed to make my way to North Carolina, NC State and Duke for camps too."
