Pac-12 Recruiting Update: Arik Armstead, Zach Banner, Kyle Murphy, Aziz Shittu Targeted By USC

Arik Armstead (OL, Pleasant Grove) could be going anywhere. I mean anywhere. The USC Trojans (the team Armstead once verballed to, the team Armstead once eliminated) will be giving Armstead an in-home visit. So could Nick Saban and Alabama. It's gotten weird. Armstead is announcing signing day, so best to believe nothing until then.

Shaq Thompson (S, Grant) has an in-home visit with Chip Kelly on Sunday upcoming.

Kyle Murphy (OT, San Clemente), Zach Banner (OT, Lakes) and Aziz Shittu (DL, Buhach Colony) are among the top targets for the USC Trojans as they host a list of big-time recruits.

At least 17 UCLA commits will be in Westwood this weekend, as are various other commits like wide receivers Kodi Whitfield (Stanford) and Bryce Treggs (Cal), linebacker Seth Jacobs and quarterback Nathan Sudfeld.

Several prominent recruits will be visiting Washington; Devian Shelton (Oregon State commit, CB), Luke Kaumatule (Stanford commit, DE), and Jordan Payton (Cal commit, WR).

Tyler Hasty (CB, Bellevue) became an Oregon State Beaver after a good visit this past week, picking them over Colorado.

Darreus Rogers (WR, Carson) still seems solid to USC, but will be visiting ASU this weekend.

Nathanael Lohn (DL, Staley) becomes another excellent addition for the Stanford Cardinal, who could be piecing together the best class in the Pac-12 when all is said and done.

Kenny Lawler (WR, Upland) will be visiting Washington State this weekend after a good in-home visit.

Psalm Wooching (FB, Kealakehe), has switched his commitment from UCLA to Washington.

Jeremiah Poutasi (OT, Desert Pines) is committed to Utah, but is tripping up to Oregon this weekend. Jaydon Mickens (WR, Dorsey) cancelled his visit with the Ducks and is a strong Oklahoma State favorite.

Bishard "Budda" Baker (RB, Bellevue) is being offered by UCLA. Baker is a 2014 sophomore.

Jeffrey Coprich (RB, Westranch) has gotten an offer from Cal as an athlete and will visit next weekend.

Caleb Smith (TE, Kentridge) still remains committed to Oregon State, but he's looking at both ASU and UCLA.
