Football: Armstead says he has not decided

If Arik Armstead knows where he is headed to college, he’s not saying.

Just got off the phone with the 6-foot-8, 275-pound lineman from Pleasant Grove HS in Elk Grove and he confirmed he will visit Auburn this weekend, then pick a school among Cal, Oregon, Notre Dame and Auburn.

“I’m going to Auburn tonight and when I get back I’ll decide where I’m going,” he said, noting that classes at those schools begin Monday or Tuesday.  

It’s not a done deal, he told me.

“I like Cal, but the other schools they have good things about them, too.”

Scout.com rates Armstead  as the nation’s No. 2 overall prospect. He graduated from high school in December in order to enroll in college for the spring term.
