Trevion Armstrong boasts scholarship offers from Old Dominion and James Madison. With a good start to the 2013 season, the 6’4″, 210-pound rising junior wide receiver hopes to add to that list.
Duke, Maryland, Virginia, Virginia Tech, and West Virginia have not offered as of yet, but all have expressed serious interest in the Matoaca (Chesterfield, VA) product. Armstrong updated the latest with respect to the two in-state ACC programs, UVa and Virginia Tech.
“I went up and hung out with Mike London. We stood in the middle of the field and talked for a little bit,” Armstrong said, recalling an August unofficial visit to Virginia. “He talked about the offering process. They want to watch my first two games.
“Virginia Tech is looking to see if they would offer as an H-Back or as a wide receiver. I talked to Coach Moorehead a lot. I actually talked to him for an hour one day. They see me possibly blowing up to be H-Back, which I don’t mind.”
Armstrong participated in camps at Virginia Tech and WVU, the latter being one of Armstrong’s strongest camp performances (he reportedly ran a 4.58 40 there). He has taken unofficial visits this month to Duke, Old Dominion, and Virginia.
Matoaca, which finished with a 4-6 overall record in 2012, opens up the 2013 regular season against a Manchester squad that features rising senior wide receiver Jonathan Duhart. Armstrong is entering his third year on the varsity squad. He hauled in seven touchdown receptions in a pass-oriented offense his freshman season, and he had another six or seven scores his sophomore season in a Wing T.
Armstrong continues to be Matoaca’s top receiving threat, but he also expects to play some quarterback in the Wildcat this season.
“I’m really excited about that part,” Armstrong said of playing Wildcat. “We already run a Wildcat. We have a quarterback who runs a 4.3 40, so we’re already doing the Wildcat thing. Our head coach is trying to change things up and give some different looks. He knows I’ll face a lot of double-teams and shade defense, so he wants to find ways to get me the ball.”
