Monster Back

Little Rock McClellan tailback Reggie Arnold (5-9, 220) remains on the University of Arkansas recruiting radar.

Odds are Little Rock McClellan tailback Reggie Arnold will play his college football in his homestate.

The question is whether it will be in the northwest or northeast corner of Arkansas.

Arnold (5-9, 220, 4.4), who had 1,200 yards rushing this past season, has an offer from Arkansas State and will visit the Indians on Jan. 14-16.

Then he'll make a trek to Arkansas on Jan. 28-30 and while he doesn't have an offer from the UA yet, the Razorbacks are still expressing interest in him.

"Right now A-State has offered me a scholarship, but I'm still wide open," Arnold said. "I'm looking forward to coming up to Fayetteville with the other guys."

The other guys are Little Rock Central standouts Kevin Thornton, Antwain Robinson, Stewart Franks and Mickey Dean and possibly Pulaski Oak Grove running back, who has already committed to Arkansas and is currently scheduled to visit Jan. 21-23.

The Razorbacks' basketball team is hosting Kentucky that weekend.

"It should be a fun weekend," Arnold said. "I've been up there several times and enjoyed it."

Arnold took a unofficial visit to Purdue earlier in the season to watch the loss to Michigan, but is no longer involved with them.

"I think I had a pretty good year running the ball and being a team leader, but we only finished 3-7 and could have done much better," Arnold said. "I just want to go somewhere we I can help them win and contribute as early as I can ."
