Omaha Creighton Prep wide receiver Mason Armstead announced his commitment to Princeton after taking an official visit last weekend.
“I really liked the atmosphere and the whole family feel,” the 6-foot-1, 170-pound senior said. “They have stuck with me throughout the entire process, so I felt like it was the right fit.”
The Tigers went 8-2 last season and finished with a 28-7 win over Penn.
Armstead finished his senior season with 56 receptions for 753 yards and nine touchdowns. He chose the Bulldogs over offers from Harvard, Yale, Dartmouth, South Dakota State and others.
Academics played a part in Armstead’s decision, even though he hasn’t decided what he wants to major in when he gets to New Jersey.
Armstead joins Millard West receiver Kaedyn Odermann (Harvard) and Kearney running back Miko Maessner (Princeton) as Nebraskans in the 2020 class committed to play football in the Ivy League.
