FSU everything Arnette wants

FSU has been the favorite school of Damon Arnette and Saturday he was able to visit for the first time. The 2015 cornerback of Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) St. Thomas Aquinas said the visit was everything he hoped it would be.

Damon Arnette and his parents visited Florida State for the first time last weekend for the Seminoles' spring game. Arnette said his time there couldn't have gone better.

"It was great, coaches were great, everybody was great. The campus is nice, from the little bit I did see. I really didn't get to see that much. Everything that they're doing, the rebuilding of their locker room and everything, that's nice," he said.

"My mom loved it, she's in love with it, and my dad was impressed with it too."

The St. Thomas Aquinas standout was especially impressed with the technology the Seminoles use to maximize their workouts and practice.

"The technology that they have is amazing, they have this vest that they wear during practice that counts how many miles per hour you run, it counts like everything. It's crazy. So if you have a good performance, they're going to raise the expectations up to that, so they'll know if you're not giving your all," he said.

The 6-foot-1, 185-pound corner also spoke with some of the FSU coaches and got a better feel of how he would fit in to the defense there.

"They were just excited that I was there. They were just telling me that with my size and if I pick up on everything pretty fast, I could get on the field and contribute as a freshman," he said.

The visit went so well, Arnette thought about committing, but he decided to hold off a bit longer.

"I'm not going to lie, it was everything that I really wanted to hear, but right now I'm still trying to keep my options open for a bit longer," he said.

"I just want to wait right now. I think going into the summer I'll have a decision, like a week or two after spring."

South Carolina, Ole Miss, Kentucky, and others have offered the South Florida standout, and Alabama is picking up the interest.
