"It was better than I expected – I really liked it," said the six-foot, five-inch wideout. "It was a great visit. I enjoyed everything. I met all the coaches and got a chance to tour the facilities before the game. The coaches were very nice and easy to talk with."
Arnett is being recruited by spurs and bandits coach Bruce Tall, and said he has hit it off with the no-nonsense assistant.
"I like him a lot," Arnett said. "He is a nice guy, and he made sure he talked to me before the game. He made me feel welcome."
Although West Virginia has not yet offered the outside receiver prospect, Arnett said the Mountaineers are staying in contact with him, and plan an evaluation visit in the near future. He also said he will try to attend another West Virginia game this year.
"Until I came to West Virginia I was probably interested in Miami the most, but West Virginia really impressed me," said the straightforward pass catcher.
Arnett also plays safety for Watkins, but sees his future as a wide receiver in college.
"Most of the schools tell me they see me on offense," he said. "They like my height and size out there."
As a junior, Arnett played in just six games before a broken ankle ended his season. In that time, he had 24 receptions for 450 yards and six scores. After recovering from that setback, Arnett is making up for lost time, having snared 32 passes for more than 700 yards and seven scores through nine games this year. As a junior, he earned all-region, all conference and honorable mention all-district honors, and is sure to back those up with more awards this year.
