The fullback has disappeared from a lot of college offenses. They've shifted to spreading things out and working in space.
Bruising blockers still have a place in the game, however. Some Big Ten schools play power football.
"I have good hands, so I'm a good check-down, iso blocker," Arendt said. "I feel like i could help a team get a good power run game going."
Arendt's family is from Hedrick, Iowa, a small town outside of Ottumwa with a population of less than 800 people. He's familiar with the University of Iowa football program, which has employed the fullback throughout the years.
"I like Iowa a lot," Arendt said. "I always liked them growing up. They have great coaches, facilities and tradition."
Arendt visited the Hawkeyes for two games this fall.
"I feel like I stand well with them," he said. "Brian Ferentz recruits my area and he is going to come to school in the spring. They want to see more out of me at camp and that stuff."
"I just went to Missouri (last weekend)," Arendt said. "I'm going to Iowa State (this weekend). The next (visit) I have after that is Ohio State, but that's not for a while. I'm not sure the exact date on it."
Arendt reports running the 40-yard dash in 4.83 seconds (electronic). He's looking to major in Anatomy or something in muscle sciences with the goal of being a strength and conditioning coach. He hopes to get in another trip to Iowa in the near future.
"I will go anytime they ask me to," Arendt said. "I call them all the time and I might just go up on a random weekend."
