DeArmas will be in Tempe this weekend

He signed with South Florida out of high school, but because of a family situation, current El Camino OG Chris DeArmas (6-4, 295) had to leave the Bulls while he helped take care of his family. After missing two full years, the talented offensive lineman is on the recruiting trail yet again and this weekend he will visit Arizona State a school that has recently come into the picture.

DeArmas prepped at Southwest Miami in Florida and signed with South Florida after a standout high school career.

However, he never enrolled and, as he tells it, it had a lot to do with a family situation.

"Basically, my family ran into some financial problems so I quit and went back home to help them out," DeArmas told JCFootball.com recently. "I was out of football for two full years and then when I was figuring out what I wanted to do, I knew a couple of guys who played out here and they said it was a great program."

El Camino is one of the power-JUCO programs in the entire country and DeArmas has helped the Warriors to a 20-5 record over the past two seasons.

"I'm real aggressive so I really like run-blocking, but I like pass-blocking too," DeArmas said. "I'm a good athlete for my size, so I can get out and pull and hit the second level on plays.

"Last year I played right tackle and this year I played right guard so I think I could do either well, it just depends on where a team needs me to be."

Recruiting has been humming along for the talented line prospect and this weekend he will be in Tempe to visit the Sun Devils.

"Arizona State has offered me and I'm visiting them this weekend," DeArmas noted. "They are the only school I have a visit scheduled with, but I have offers from USF, Florida International, Nevada and Memphis and a bunch of 1-AA programs.

"The coaches at ASU are real cool. I'm hearing from coach (Greg) Yarber and some of the other ones there," DeArmas said. "I really like them a lot and I'm really high on them. I'm going to just check them out and see how things fit."

DeArmas will be able to sign with a school starting December 16th and he will have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
