"Armond is a great kid," Carroll said. "He would have…when we recruited him we thought of him as being a high-round draft pick, like a one or two type of draft pick. A big ol' defensive end that we'd play on the tight end side and be a factor for a long time. He's real long and athletic with a good basketball background and all that. He's a really good kid. He just had a difficult turn with the whole medical side of things. And he's overcome it I guess. I guess he did pretty good up north and it's great that he has a chance to come back."
The more we hear about Armstead the more excited Patriots fans should be about what the USC product brings to the team.
