"They say Auburn is just a great place, so I just want to check it out for myself."
Florida is another stop on the 6-foot-5, 292-pound lineman's list. He'll be at the Gators camp Friday and is hoping to earn an offer.
"I want to just go there and enjoy myself, have fun, do the drills right and all that stuff," he said.
"I want to really show them that my feet are like a ballerina."
"I'm going to end up probably narrowing everything down by the end of July. I'll probably have everything down pat," he said.
"I just want to see the schools and see what my options are."
"Miami, I'm supposed to go to one of their camps, I don't know the date yet or anything though," he said.
Arnold hopes to reach a decision sooner rather than later and he'll be keeping in mind a few things as he evaluates his options.
"If I go far, I need to know if I'll have tickets for my mom to come up, and then the coaching staff, being around the team, a great atmosphere (are what I'm looking for)," he said.
