Arnett Announcement

DeAnthony Arnett, the top prospect in the state of Michigan will make his college decision this week, presuming they can set up a press conference in time. Arnett and his family are trying to sort things out with the school principle etc, aiming for an announcement this Wednesday or Thursday. 

Arnett enjoyed his recent visit to the Big House where he got to see just how well UM's pass offense can operate. With DRob/Tate/Devin all on campus, at least Michigan can guarantee Arnett he'll play with a top quality QB for three straight years, which maybe other teams can't. 

So do the Wolverines actually have a shot here? Well, strangely enough Arnett denies ever really eliminating Michigan. However for the last few months he certainly hasn't mentioned UM in his top list. 

Chances are low, but who knows. Maybe he's just be messing with us this whole time ;) Personally I'd just consider it a win if he didn't end up at Michigan State.


  1. why are you so hung up on him going to MSU? I strongly believe he will end up at USC or Cal, he has really enjoyed his visits there and has continually talked about how much he enjoyed the atmosphere out on the west coast.

  2. Personally, it seems to me like he's been taking all his visits to make sure that East Lansing's his home, the same way that Quinta Funderburk did before committing to Arkansas. And this is coming from an ardent UM fan, mind you.

  3. Good point Jack. I guess I just don't think he's going to end up in East Lansing. I will probably end up being wrong, but hey, my guess is as good as anyone's, right?

  4. MSU has always been at or near the top of his list, and several recruiting pundits have said they think he'll end up at MSU. He liked his visits out west a lot, but I just think he'll stay in state. Best scenario would be him going to Cal (assuming he doesn't pick us), because we probably won't play them in the next four years.

  5. Seems to be Tenn or MSU for Arnett . . . and I know he's at MSU, but you have to admit that Lawrence Thomas is the best player in the state this year.
