'Cats Continue to Lead for SC DT

Kentucky Wildcat football recruiting update from Rob Gidel from Kentucky Sports Report.

Arterio Arnold Update

The University of Kentucky had really made up ground with Greenville (SC) defensive tackle Arterio Arnold after an impressive North-South All-Star game performance, where he got a chance to meet Wildcat commitment Eugene McCaskill.

"I was supposed to go up there January 4th with Gene," Arnold said referring to his newfound friend. "He said he loved it up. Said it was a perfect visit. I've already been up to see it, so I kind of already have a feel for what he got to see."

The 6-foot, 289 pound defensive lineman does not plan on making a decision on college until signing day, but he does not intend on taking any official visits before then.

"I don't see myself taking any trips, to be honest," Arnold said. "I'll make my choice known on signing day, but I've been talking to all my schools (NC State, Maryland and Kentucky) and they haven't been pressuring me or anything into coming."

Arnold finished off his career at Greenville with not only a selection in the heralded North-South All-Star game, but in helping one of the state's best programs post a 10-3 record.

"I'm fast," Arnold said laughing. "I never quit and just fly around the ball. I want to always make a play. My motor never quits."

Arnold more than shows that in his film. For the second straight year, the Greenville (SC) HS star posted over 100 tackles and seven sacks.
