Final weekend before signing day……

It was a big weekend, and the final before National Signing Day 2012. The biggest commitment of the weekend came yesterday when the Oregon Ducks landed the 6’8”, 275 lbs Arik Armstead (video below). The former USC commitment wants to play Defensive End in college, but knowing Chip Kelly, he should be an offensive tackle by the end of 2012. Still, he is a huge commitment, and will certainly make an impact at Oregon. Some of Oregon’s other top prospects are DE DeForest Buckner, QB Jake Rodriguez, and TE Pharoah Brown.

Second on the list was Texas middle linebacker Dalton Santos. Santos, who has been committed to Tennessee since what seems like forever, started taking visits this January. Texas was also his dream school which factored into the equation. Once the Longhorns offered him, his decision may have been made. The Longhorns are getting a good one in the 6’2”, 240 lbs Van High School star. Santos was actually the second big time Longhorn commitment of the day. Texas cornerback Daje Johnson also committed. The 5’10, 185 lber is another dynamic weapon that will give Texas a chance to be ranked #1 overall by RedshirtScouting. 

Storyline #3, talented New Jersey Quarterback Devin Fuller chose UCLA yesterday. Fuller chose UCLA over Rutgers and Arizona. The Bruins are getting a nice looking quarterback. He is small at 5’11.5”, but Fuller is certainly a talented player. The change of Rutgers head coach Greg Schiano may have pushed Fuller to UCLA as apposed to Rutgers.

Talented cornerback prospect Armani Reeves joins his teammate and close friend LB Camren Williams as an Ohio State commitment. The run that Urban Meyer has been on since taking the job has been incredible, and a piece about it will be posted in the coming days. Regardless, Reeves is a very talented corner, and at a position of need for Ohio State. The Ohio State Buckeyes are now also in the running for a top finish with guys like Stefon Diggs, Kyle Dodson, Davonte Neal, Jamal Marcus, Joel Caleb, and Bam Bradley still on their board. Speaking of Stefon Diggs, the Buckeyes hosted him this weekend on an official visit.

Speaking of Ohio, big time wide receiver Monty Madaris also made his commitment yesterday. Madaris chose Michigan State. The 6’2”, 180 lber is a big time kid. The Spartans also have a commitment from one of the top in-state kids as well in Aaron Burbridge.
