Armstead says he's enrolled at three schools

Arik Armstead, one of the top defensive linemen in the Class of 2012, visited Auburn this weekend as he narrows down his choice of college programs.

The 6-8, 280-pounder will choose between the Tigers, Cal, Oregon and Notre Dame, and he plans on starting classes immediately -- possibly as early as Tuesday. While the early enrollee doesn't know exactly where he will land, he says he's already enrolled at Auburn, Cal and Notre Dame just in case.

The Elk Grove, Calif., native plans on being a two-sport athlete in college, as he desires to play basketball as well. He left his high school basketball team specifically to enroll early at his school of choice.

The standout from Pleasant Grove High School is projected by some to be an ideal offensive lineman at the next level, but Armstead prefers to play defensive end, a position he played during the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.

Armstead’s brother, Armond, also visited the Auburn campus. He played at USC for four years but sat out last season because of a medical issue. The brothers have stated that they would like to play together but that aspect won’t be a deciding factor in Arik’s decision.
