ECU has hosted recruits nearly every weekend this spring and today marks the last time recruits can watch the Pirates scrimmage until the fall. A talented wide receiver, Trevion Armstrong, is currently on campus to check out the game and see what the football program has to offer.
Armstrong was a standout wide receiver as a junior using his 6-foot-4, 215-pound frame to dominate defensive backs. As a result of his success, a ton of football programs have expressed interest him.
Some of his newest offers include Old Dominion, Appalachian State, Illinois, Pittsburgh, Temple, Marshall and UNC Charlotte. There could be more offers on the way for Armstrong with schools Virginia Tech, UNC Chapel Hill and ECU starting to amp up his recruitment.
ECU defensive line coach Marc Yellock is the recruiter for Armstrong’s area and invited him to campus this weekend. He has yet to receive an offer from the Pirates, but that could be in the works.
Armstrong enjoyed his time at the spring game and spoke kindly about ECU after the game.
"That was my first time at ECU," said Armstrong. "It was a very nice place and there are some great people there. I don't have a strong relationship with the coaches yet, but I'm looking forward to strengthening that. The head coach (Ruffin McNeill) seems like a great guy that really cares about the players."
