Armstrong was at the Cleveland Opening Regional this past Sunday, and he talked abut his decision to pledge to the Gophers.
"When I looked at the university, the football program and how comfortable I was with Coach (P.J.) Fleck, it was an easy decision for me," Armstrong stated. "I only made one visit there, and I loved it right away."
"Coach Fleck and his staff are about to do good things there, and they're bringing a different culture to the program," he added. "It's time to start beating all the Big Ten teams in the division, and I want to be a part of that."
"I was offered by Western Michigan when Coach Fleck was there, so we had spoken before he got to Minnesota," he continued. "He said he knew I wouldn't go to Western, but Minnesota gives me a bigger opportunity. There was no reason for me to chase other offers, because I feel so comfortable with Minnesota."
Even though he is currently playing baseball, Armstrong threw the football very well at The Opening Regional. He is poised to have a big senior season at Shelby.
