Oregon Football Recruiting: Arik Armstead Announces For Ducks, Will Play Football And Basketball

The departure of Tosh Lupoi from Cal to Washington might have had an unintended consequence: One of his biggest recruits that Lupoi was looking at will be going to neither school and will end up at perhaps the biggest rival in all the conference. Joe Davidson of the Sacramento Bee reports.

Arik Armstead made his announcement a few hours, and made his commitment to Oregon over an impressive list of schools, which included Cal, Washington as well as Auburn, UCLA and USC. Armstead really liked the sports business program and the Nike connections, and appreciated the lack of negative recruiting from Chip Kelly.

Armstead will enroll for the spring quarter in March and should be able to participate in spring practice, and he'll figure to compete for playing time on the defensive front. Armstead also wants to play hoops, and he should be in the mix to be on Dana Altman's squad.
