DT Dan Arnes - Class of 2009

Dan Arnes (ARN-NIS), a 6-foot-5, 260-pound, defensive tackle, from Stratford, Wis., is starting to hear from college recruiters. Arnes is considered one of the top junior prospects in the state of Wisconsin and Badger Nation caught up with him for an exclusive interview.

"Iowa, Michigan, Wisconsin and Connecticut are sending me letters right now." Dan Arnes told Badger Nation.

"I've always been a huge fan of the Badgers. I grew up a huge fan but I've never been to a game. Hopefully that will change next year.

"If I had to name some schools that I'm interested in hearing from I'd say Wisconsin, Ohio State, Florida, , Penn State, Iowa, Michigan and U Conn would all be at the top of the list.

"I really didn't do any camps or combines last year but I plan on attending some events next spring and summer."

Arnes will be a three-year varsity starter for Stratford in 2008. He finished his junior season with 68 tackles and 3 sacks. Those numbers were good enough to earn Arnes all-conference honors.

Arnes also participates in wrestling and track. He carries a 3.67 GPA in the classroom.
