Bio

A physically imposing player at 6-8, 300 pounds, Arik Armstead arrived to the Oregon Ducks to great fanfare and he’s been a contributor since. In 2013, he became a mainstay in the defensive line rotation as he bounced from starter to reserve. After posting 13 total tackles a year ago, the former Parade All-American enters his junior season with plenty of expectations on his large and talented shoulders. The Ducks lost a good portion of its defensive line from 2013, so Armstead will have a chance to establish himself, and his considerable talent, in 2014.

High School

Armstead was named to the 2012 Parade All-American team after a standout senior year at Pleasant Grove High School in Sacramento, Calif. Put up 42 tackles, 3.5 sacks and three pass breakups his senior year and earned all-state first team honors as an offensive lineman. Was also a two-year letter winner in basketball for Pleasant Grove.

College

As a true freshman in 2012, became a consistent contributor to the defensive line with 26 tackles while rotating between tackle and end. He played in all 13 games and got a start against California. Also joined the men’s basketball team following football season, redshirting for the program. In 2013, he saw the field a lot as part of an eight-man defensive line rotation. Started the season’s first five games before becoming a contributor off the bench. After a stellar spring practice in 2014, it appears he may be ready to reach the heights many had predicted when he arrived on campus.
