Central Hardin (KY.) running back Xavier Arnette has taken a few visits this fall during his junior season. Scout has the latest.

Xavier Arnette helped Central hardin into the third round of the playoffs with a 12-1 record. He rushed for 1175 yards and 19 touchdowns this season and has caught the eye of several coaches.

“I went down to Western Kentucky twice in November,” said Arnette. “I went to Kentucky when they played Mississippi State and when they played Georgia.”

Arnette got the opportunity to talk a little bit with both schools’ coaches while he was on the campuses.

“The second time at Western I talked to Coach Brohm and Coach Dunn. They invited me down to Junior Day. They’re going to send me a packet about it,” Arnette said.

“At Kentucky I talked with (former offensive coordinator) Neal Brown. He congratulated me on having a big season. I really enjoyed both visits,” he continued.

Now that football is over, the 6-foot, 200-pounder is preparing for his time on the baseball diamond.

“I’m getting ready for baseball season now. I play center or left field,” Arnette said. “I’ve talked to Kentucky in baseball and later this month I’m going to Tennessee for a showcase. Then I’m going to Western Kentucky for a showcase,” he finished.
