"I can relax now when it comes to thinking about if I'm going to get any offers," he said.
While he's taking a more laid-back approach to his recruitment right now, a few schools have his attention early.
"I like South Carolina, Florida State, and Kentucky. I've been talking to those three schools a lot," he said.
He plans to visit the national champion Seminoles for a spring practice and return for the spring game. Picking up that offer meant a lot to Arnette.
"That was a huge one because I've always liked them since I was young. Doing research about them, I see that they're about to graduate a whole bunch of defensive backs," he said.
Kentucky is another school that has the South Florida standout's attention. "Their coaching staff is great. They're in a rebuilding time. They just got (head) coach (Mark) Stoops and a couple of those coaches came from Florida State. Coach Stoops is the coach that recruited Florida State's secondary that's graduating this year," he said.
South Carolina is also in a great spot with Arnette. The Gamecocks offered first and he's been building a great relationship with secondary coach Grady Brown.
"He seems like a great person. He gives me advice about the recruiting process. I talk to him on a daily basis. He just checks up on me, sees how my day is going, and he teaches me a few things about colleges, gives me some statistics about the SEC and ACC, he just shows a lot of love," he said.
When it comes to a timeline for his decision, Arnette is keeping that same, one-day-at-a-time, approach.
"I honestly have no idea (when I might decide). It might come during the summer, it might come before school gets out, it might come next year during the season," he said.
Besides visiting Florida State a couple times this spring, Arnette hopes to camp at South Carolina this summer.
