RB James Arnold
5-11, 180, 4.5
Davie County High School
Mocksville, North Carolina
In early October, Mocksville (N.C.) Davie County tailback James "Cooter" Arnold was forced to cancel his official visit with Auburn because the coaching staff told him they were "going to be out scouting." Many pondered if the Tigers' coaching staff were slow-playing the 5-foot-11, 180-pounder.
"To tell you the truth, I don't know," remarked Arnold. "The only thing that they said is they don't know if they are going to sign a running back, because they get the transfer from South Carolina and then they get a couple of redshirt people. So I don't know."
The situation has Auburn, who was once the leader, falling out of favor for Arnold's services, but two other schools that began recruiting the Scout.com three-star prospect hard have filled in the hole left by Auburn.
"Right now Wake and UNC are my favorites and I still like Clemson," stated Arnold, who has offers from all three schools. "Auburn is sort of out of it."
Arnold has set up an official visit to Chapel Hill in November, and figures to have officials set up with Clemson and Wake Forest in the very near future.
Arnold has already taken in a game this year at Death Valley. He was in attendance for the 35-6 Homecoming win over Utah State.
