Gretna DT Patrick Arnold Hits Nebraska Junior Day

Nebraska prep Patrick Arnold, a two-way lineman at Gretna, was in Lincoln on Saturday for junior day.

Gretna high school (Neb.) 2017 two-way lineman Patrick Arnold is still searching for his first offer and on Saturday was in Lincoln for the Huskers' junior day with 20 to 30 other high school prospects.

After the visit, he talked with Big Red Report about the trip. 

"It was awesome, it was a pretty neat experience. That was the longest junior day I have ever attended," said Arnold. "There were some really big prospects. It was nice to see some bigger guys looking at a junior day and not just the second-tier guys." 

Arnold has recently visited schools such as Kansas State, Wyoming and Iowa State. He feels schools like Wyoming, South Dakota State and Ivy League member Columbia are getting close. 

"I was at Wyoming last week and Coach pulled me in his office. I got to talk to him for about 25 to 30 minutes," said Arnold. "That was definitely nice and showed their level of interest. They are definitely taking a serious look." 

One of the better prospects in the state of Nebraska for the 2017 class, Arnold definitely feels he's on the Huskers' radar and will camp this summer as many times as he can in hopes to earn an offer. 

"I have been talking with Ryan Gunderson," said Arnold. "I'm going to hit both of the Friday Night Lights camps if my schedule allows it." 

Arnold started both ways in 2015, recording 40+ tackles and one sack.
