Oregon sophomore DL Arik Armstead has given up his place on the school's basketball team to focus on football.
Armstead, at 6'8/280 pounds, was listed as a forward on the team, and previously called basketball his "first love." On the football field, Armstead predominantly lines up at defensive tackle and has tons of talent despite a lack of national attention. One NFL talent evaluator told the Oregonion Armstead has "the highest upside of any Duck not named Marcus Mariota because of his sheer physical gifts." He was also a highly rated offensive line recruit. Jan 29 - 10:29 AM

Scouts Inc.'s Kevin Weidl believes Oregon sophomore DE Arik Armstead is a name to keep an eye on.

"Raw but a grown man out there as a true freshman," Weidl writes. "Has a chance to be big time." Armstead is only a sophomore in 2013, so we will see him play college ball for at least two more season, but his 6'8/280 pound frame is very intriguing. The Ducks defense remains quite talented.
