Exchanged text messages this afternoon with Arik Armstead, who returned from his trip to Auburn but said he wasn’t ready to make an announcement.
“Prolly 2morro,” he texted.
The Pleasant Grove HS grad — he finished classes last month — told Brandon Huffman of Scout.com that his trip to Auburn went well. Well, of course. How many times ever have heard a kid say, “My trip to Big-Time State U was a total bust, man. Can’t believe I wasted my time.” Never.
Armstead, who wants to enroll for the spring term (begins Tuesday at Cal) and play both football and basketball, told Scout that Cal might be coming in for a home visit before he makes his decision.
Given the timing, makes you wonder if that visit was tonight. Or Monday morning.
