WHY Ohio State? “I just feel like it’s the best opportunity that I have, on the field and off the field,” Arnette said.

It was after an in-home visit with Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer last week that Arnette knew he would be a Buckeye. He then took his official visit and it solidified his choice.

“It was a hard choice. I really like South Carolina, but I have to do what’s best for me,” he said.

The work ethic and winning mindset of the Ohio State players and coaches was a big reason Arnette decided to commit.

“Speaking with the players, those players have the same mindset as me and my teammates from St. Thomas. I felt like the environment is very similar to St. Thomas, and that’s a good environment for me to be in, to push myself,” he said.
