College Football Recruiting: Arik Armstead Will Announce College Decision On Sunday, Washington And Oregon In The Mix

One of the top football recruits in the country is expected to announce his college decision on Sunday. Could the Washington Huskies or Oregon Ducks wind up with lineman Arik Armstead?

Pleasant Grove high school lineman Arik Armstead has been one of the very top prospects in the country for a while now. The senior stands at 6-foot-8 and weighs 295 pounds.

Armstead had made a commitment to USC prior to his junior season, where he was expected to follow in the footsteps of his older brother Armond Armstead, who is currently a member of the Trojans. However, in November 2011, Arik rescinded that commitment, possibly due to Armond butting heads with head coach Lane Kiffin and becoming disillusioned with the USC football program.

Despite Arik's de-commitment, Kiffin visited the Armstead home as one of many school representatives hoping to gain Arik's services in the fall. Among the suitors who paid a visit to Armstead are the Washington Huskies and the Oregon Ducks.

The latest news, according to Joe Davidson at The Sacramento Bee, is that Armstead is expected to announce his final college decision on Sunday. It is unclear what the chances are for the Northwest Pac-12 teams to wind up with Armstead, but if either of them do it would be a major coup.
