Duke Amongst Favorites For DC LB

Scout talked with 2010 prospect Tyrone Armstrong from Friendship Collegiate Academy in Washington D.C. The highly regarded middle linebacker wants to stay close to home.

Tyrone Armstrong was hoping to be able to stay home and play for Maryland but it looks like that may be an unlikely situation.

"Coach (James) Franklin is a great guy," said Armstrong. "I think that they really like me but they are not offering more than one linebacker. If that doesn't change than I will be out. I really like Maryland."

Armstrong broke his arm in the first game as a junior so this offseason and his senior season are very important.

"I have been to a few camps. Although I like Maryland the Duke camp was the best. The music was blasting and everyone was having a great time. I am going to Towson and they said I will get an offer in person if I perform well."

Location is very important to Armstrong. "I definitely want to be on the east coast. Maryland, Duke, Temple, Georgia and Towson are my top schools. Facilities are not important to me like some players. The coaches are more important. And I want a place that feels like home.

Armstrong reports a 3.0 GPA and a SAT score of 850 (m, cr). He is taking the SAT again this fall.
