Arik Armstead was originally supposed to announce his commitment to Cal on January 16th (at least, all signs indicated he was going to choose the Bears) but the departure of Tosh Lupoi made him reconsider his decision. With two weeks to think about it, has he decided to go elsewhere or will he be sporting the blue and gold for the next four years? We will find out today around 3:00pm PST.
Arik Armstead, Pleasant Grove High School's towering and dominant 6-foot-8, 295-pound All-American linemen, will make his college scholarship announcement on Sunday.
He will announce at his family church - The House Christian Church - on Broadway in Sacramento. There will be prep teammates, coaches, family, friends and local media on hand, and why all the fuss? He's a unique talent, a unique kid know for his humility as much as his considerable football and basketball talents and upside. He has been on everyone's short list on national recruits and seemingly every prep All-American team across the country, including MaxPreps, Sports Illustrated, Parade and a host of others.
If Armstead commits to Cal, this could be a huge momentum boost to help the Bears close out on a strong 2012 recruiting class. Follow @sb_joedavidson for the latest updates and join us in this open thread to discuss the events as they unfold.
