DB Damon Arnette of Fort Lauderdale said early Monday afternoon he had made his decision and would announce it Monday night. This was coming in the heels of a visit to USC last weekend. But Arnette had a change of heart during the day and informed us Monday evening he was delaying his decision. “Pushed it back,” is how he put it in a text message. Arnette did not elaborate further on his plans. He has also been considering Kentucky and Ohio State. 247Sports reported he wants to visit Kentucky before making the decision. He’s already visited Kentucky once.
