DT Arterio Arnold Profile
Arterio Arnold, a 6-3, 270 pound defensive tackle prospect out of Greenville High School was back in Death Valley to watch the Tigers beat No. 13 Georgia Tech two weeks ago.
"I liked it. It was fun. I went up with David [Smith]," Arnold told CUTigers.com in a recent interview. "I was real surprised with the game. I was sitting next to Kourtnei Brown a defensive end from North Carolina. He was impressed too."
Clemson recruiting coordinator/linebackers coach David Blackwell saw Arnold play the night before the Georgia Tech victory.
"It was alright. I didn't get to talk to him then. I talked with him at the Clemson game. He told me they liked my play," Arnold said.
The star defensive tackle also had a chance to speak with a few coaches last Saturday.
"I got to talk with coach Bowden a little bit Saturday, as well as coach Blackwell. They just talked about the season and the playoffs. They told me to stay focused and not look ahead," he said.
In the game against Daniel high, Arnold had the opportunity to play against Clemson commit Jarvis Jenkins.
"That is a big boy," he said. "I had to block him on punt returns. He will be a good one for Clemson. He is a nice person too."
In terems of recruiting, Arnold is still awaiting his first offer, but many schools are already showing significant interest, including Clemson.
"I don't have any offers yet. Notre Dame and North Carolina are sending me a lot of stuff in the mail," he said.
