Arizona signee Armstrong to skip college, turn pro

Arizona signee Terry Armstrong will skip college and instead pursue professional options, according to multiple reports Wednesday.

Armstrong, from Scottsdale (Ariz.) Bella Vista Prep, was a four-star recruit and the No. 7 shooting guard in the nation, as ranked by the 247Sports composite.

He is the fourth player in the Class of 2019 to bypass college and turn pro.

Guard RJ Hampton, the nation’s No. 5-ranked player, signed with the New Zealand Breakers of the National Basketball League. LaMelo Ball, the No. 22-ranked player who likely would not have met NCAA eligibility requirements, also announced this week he will play in the NBL.

KJ Martin, a three-star recruit who had signed to play at Vanderbilt, said earlier this month he would pursue a pro career, though he isn’t believed to have signed a contract yet.
