I think like Pharoh Cooper he will start out on defense and if he falls in the depth chart he will get a shot on offense.

Bubba is asking for him to think about playing offense. I think that tells you where they want him but if history is any indicator they'll give him a shot at whatever position he wants first.

I do think he is going to end up on offense though.

Anyway, Arnette is still my #1 must get in this class. Need a good sized Boundary corner.

The versatility of Johnson is a really good addition that allows the coaches some options. First, if he's a CB, that gives us the opportunity to only take one more (Arnette), and fill the class out with five, maybe six if another really good one wanted to commit. That also allows room for one more WR (Charles?) if they pushed for one. On the other hand, if Johnson ends up at WR, that would mean we could definitely take two more CBs to finish out that group.

I will say this, Bubba wanting him on offense is interesting. Perhaps he's trying to stack the deck at WR with the good amount of turnover on that side of the ball we're going to face in 2015.

Would be great if somehow Abernathy was part of this class as well. 6'1" and he is a burner.
Hard to imagine Arnette would give serious consideration to Kentucky, unless he's really tweaked about this week's other commits. I understand his coaches have a connection to Stoops staff, but they're another half day drive away +they're terrible.

Stoops has really been recruiting well at UK....he's convincing a lot of talent to go there. That they are targeting Arnette so hard concerns me...

Kentucky had a nice year in Stoops honeymoon season. The honeymoon is over, their recruiting is starting to go back where it has always been.

don't take this the wrong way, but we'll be fine at DB whether or not Arnette is part of the class. we lead with Micah Abernathy, and we have several other really good DB that are interested in us like Carlton Davis.

This is true; however, with Damon and Jordan Scarlett both being teammates at St. Thomas Aquinas, it would be nice to get them here to establish a connection not only in a great HS program but a "hotbed" recruiting area as well!

I think Arnette's coaches told him he ought to visit UK.

they may be teammates, but I haven't seen any evidence or read anything that said they wanted to play together.

All the more reason to keep STA talent coming our way. We don't want to become a "one hit wonder" at a program like that!

if we get a couple more to commit in the next month, he may out....you snooze, you lose.
it does bother me that he got nervous with our other DB commits.....I'm sure the coaches
told him we were taking 5 in the class....

It's good to remember we're all just reading the tea leaves. The other DB commits could have had everything or nothing to do with his changing his mind on committing. The bottom line is Grady made him a priority and recruited him hard. If for some reason he decides to go elsewhere this is one of those where there probably isn't much else that could have been done.

He is still 99 percent sure he wants to come here, but he is being encouraged to take visits. Still hope he ends up here. Would be a solid get.
