Armstrong talks UVa

Armstrong talks UVa

Trevion Armstrong was among the 58,000 plus in Scott Stadium for Virginia's clash with Oregon on Saturday afternoon.

After taking in the first open practice of fall camp, 2015 Chesterfield (Matoaca) wide receiver, Trevion Armstrong returned to Charlottesville on Saturday afternoon as Virginia entertained the second ranked Oregon Ducks at Scott Stadium.

"It was a really good visit." Armstrong said in a phone interview on Sunday evening.

"Me and my grandmother went up and I just got with the coaches. I thought UVa was going to pull it out because it was really close at the beginning, but Oregon took off like everyone expected them too. It wasn't a let down, it was a great day."

Armstrong was one of many 2014 and 2015 standouts who flocked to grounds to watch UVa take on Oregon on Saturday. Many of the highly touted prospects in attendance were from the Hampton Roads area, and Armstrong spent the day networking with several '757' athletes.

"There were a lot of big-time recruits there," Armstrong said.

"They knew each other because they were from the '757' and I'm just getting to know them. It was good for me because Jamil Kamara and Jaason Lewis are two of the top wideouts in the state and I don't get to see them a lot. It was good to just hang out and talk with them and hear a little bit from them about where they're looking to go and stuff like that and I got an inside scoop on some out of state schools that I'm looking at. "

Saturday was a tough day for the Virginia receiving corps, as the UVa wideouts combined to catch just 12 passes for 50 yards. Armstrong says that the unit's lack of production from the offense and lopsided score left the prospects in attendance with plenty to discuss amongst themselves.

"Some recruits said that if they go [to Virginia] they can help the team out a lot." Armstrong said.

Armstrong told Hoonation back in August that the coaches would evaluate his early season game film and determine if they would offer. Where do things currently stand?

"[Jim Reid] got fired in the middle of my recruiting process so I kind of went back to square one because the new guy they hired was my lead recruiter and he didn't have any film of me," Armstrong said.

"I kind of deal with [Anthony] Poindexter and {Marquis] Hagans more, but I'm pretty sure that it's coming in the next couple of weeks, because Hagans pretty much told me that he wants to see some more game film. [Hagans] already saw my first game film and he's going to catch me this week I think when we play Clover Hill."

So, what's next for the Matoaca standout?

"I know I'll back at UVa for the [Virginia] Tech game," Armstrong indicated.

"I'll probably be at ODU this weekend, but other than that, I'm about done. I'll be focusing on high school until the season is over and then I'll pick back up with the recruiting process."

Armstrong at Matoca High School currently sit at 0-2, and will host 0-1, Clover Hill this Friday night.
