  • Arnold told All Badgers that he looks forward to "finally getting to see the city, meet the rest of the coaching staff, and how they run things" in Madison.
  • Given his stellar man-to-man coverage abilities and athleticism, Wisconsin thinks Arnold could be versatile enough to play nickel or on the outside.
  • He hopes to make his college commitment in the next couple of weeks.
  • Arnold has an official visit to Vanderbilt scheduled for later this month.
  • When the time comes to make a final decision, Arnold told All Badgers that he is "looking for honesty in the coaching staff, somewhere family oriented, just want a chance to compete."
