2014 Eastern Michigan Recruiting: 3-Star OT Ka'John Armstrong Commits To EMU

EMU added a promising young offensive line commit, who could be a big factor in protecting quarterback Brogan Roback, to its 2014 class, - Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports

Chris Creighton is really enjoying the whole "having scholarships to work with" part of his new gig as Eastern Michigan's head coach. Shortly after picking up a pair of verbals, the fifth and sixth of the Eagles' 2014 class, on Sundayafternoon, he added the best pickup of the class yet with a commitment from 3-star offensive tackle Ka'John Armstrong, as first reported by Scout.com's Allen Trieu.

Armstrong has been on EMU's radar for some time, initially receiving an offer over the summer and visiting when Ron English was still in charge. But it was Creighton who was able to seal the deal, and it's a great get for a class that is starting to build some serious steam.

At 6-foot-5, 270-pounds, Armstrong has decent size, and is considered the 34th best prospect in the state of Michigan according to 247Sports' composite rankings system. A Detroit native, adding Armstrong also shows that Creighton is capable of reeling in top-level talent in the Eagles' home state, something that should go a long way with boosters, and other recruits.

Though Armstrong didn't hold offers from other Division I schools, he had received interest from Michigan State and Michigan, and even took a series of unofficial visits to the Spartans in the fall.

The addition of Armstrong gives the Eagles seven commitments for the 2014 class, nearly double of what they had just a week ago. Three of those commits are offensive lineman.

Signing day is a little over two weeks away now, and Creighton still has a bunch of work to do to fill out a recruiting class that was left barren by English, but the recent additions show promise that the new head coach is up to the challenge.
