Being recruited heavily across the state of Florida, Armstrong is keeping an eye on Baton Rouge and talking to one coach in particular.
“I talk to Coach [D.J.] McCarthy a lot,” Armstrong said. “He is the guy that I have really connected with the most.”
In terms of where the nation’s third ranked weak side linebacker would fit into the Tiger’s scheme, Armstrong said that a position change is something he would definitely seek.
“I want to play safety in college,” Armstrong said. “LSU is giving me that chance.”
Armstrong (6-3, 220, 4.6) said that though he does not know what his summer holds, he is sure that a visit to Baton Rouge will be in the cards.
“I plan on visiting real soon,” he said. “I am ready to get down there and see what the coaches are all about. I want to know what kind of people they are, because I am looking for that family atmosphere.”
Armstrong, however, is not the only Seminole player hot on LSU’s radar.
Four-star wide receiver Andre Dubose and four star defensive end Dyron Dye, both in the Scout 300, are also making noise across the Southeast.
Will Armstrong’s decision be swayed by the recruiting process of his teammates?
“We would like to play together,” said Armstrong. “But we are all looking at depth charts, seeing where we could play early. If that doesn’t line up then we will go separate ways.”
Note: Armstrong spent time at both quarterback and linebacker as a junior, finishing with 30 tackles and two interceptions on the defensive side.
