Deon talked a good amount about Ohio State and his visit went well.

My favorite part about the visit was getting to see the staff again and building a stronger relationship with them throughout the day.”

His interest in Ohio State is extremely high.

Armstrong spoke about Coach Frye, who’s his main recruiter, “We talked about a lot of things, even other than football. I got to know him better as a person and not only as a coach.” Armstrong added, “I've been an Ohio State fan since I was a kid, and being recruited by them has been fun.” 

Frye is clearly aiming to bring Deon home to Columbus.

He also spoke about him and his brother going to the same college at the end of the day, “Possibly, but if we have different interests, then no.”

Deon spoke about what his recruitment is. He says, “My recruitment now is just seeing the environment and building relationships.” 

His relationship with Frye will continue to grow as his recruitment heats up.

It will be interesting to see how Armstrong's recruitment continues to develop in the coming months. For now, though, it is safe to say the Buckeyes have made a strong impression.
