Scouting Report
Arnette is a versatile defender who plays cornerback, safety and outside linebacker in the St. Thomas Aquinas defense. He's fast enough to stay with the outside receivers, quick enough to man up on the slot, and doesn't shy away from run support.

Immediate Projection
Arnette likely projects to safety for the Buckeyes because they already have three other cornerbacks in the 2015 class. He has shown a decent comfort level manning up over the slot, which is something that OSU safeties need to be able to do. He's got very good size for a defensive back, but it will be up to the rest of his game to determine how quickly he plays. Safeties still need to step up in the Ohio State two-deep, and one of those guys could be Arnette.
