PRIOR TO MSU: Arnett played his prep career in Saginaw, Michigan where he earned U.S. Army All-American honors and was considered one of the top prospects in the country by the majority of recruiting services. Signing with Tennessee, Arnett started off having a break-out season where he recorded 24 catches for 242 yards and two touchdowns as a true freshman. However, personal issues at home had Arnett wanting to return closer to his hometown and Michigan State was the logical stop as the Spartans had been one of the schools to do a solid job of recruiting Arnett during the recruiting process.
Arnett enters the 2015 season listed as a co-starter on the Spartans depth-chart at flanker after having a great spring session that saw him show signs of the prospect coming out of high school with 11 catches for 130 yards in the Spartans two spring scrimmages and annual Green/White Game.
