Dont kid yourself Florida has 5 stars backing up 5 stars backing up 5 stars. Plus Hargreaves is there, so 1 corner spot is locked down.

I don't know UF's situation but when I read "depth" that does not include the high school pledges. He should feel very confident about competing against other incoming freshman.......that same feeling may not be their when challenging upper classmen.

If competition scared him away from the swamp and may scare him away from here, then S. Ala May be where he needs to be..JMO

It's quite possible he just wants to stay close to home. Nothing wrong with that or perhaps that's where he feels he's got the best chance to play football & baseball.

I just get the feeling that something else is in play here. Lots of schools backed off & an SEC school losing a player to So Alabama is far from the norm. Could be my feeling is flat wrong too.

In any event, hope he goes on to great things.

Maybe we backed off cause we want Arnette. Who knows? Either way wish the young man the best. Maybe he just wants to stay home.

It's his hometown school, I would imagine he has friends and teammates that currently go there. I also wouldn't be shocked if they basically offered him a starting CB spot when he stepped on campus whereas he'll be competing with a bunch of guys here. Plus the baseball factor helped his decision.
