USC jumps in with South Florida cornerback

February 14, 2014 

USC secondary coach Grady Brown has gone back down to South Florida to seek out more help and he’s made an offer to DB Damon Arnette (6-2 185) of Fort Lauderdale. What makes Arnette an interesting story is he’s never played cornerback before but that will be his position moving forward. He played receiver last season but stood out a corner at a camp in December and things have taken off for him.

The Gamecocks offered along with Florida State, Hawaii, Indiana and Kentucky. He’s also hearing from Miami, Wake Forest, Michigan State and Central Florida.

“Coach Brown is very helpful with this whole recruiting process,” Arnette said. “He tells me they really want me up there and I can help South Carolina a lot. He sees a lot of potential in me and he wants to be my coach. He likes my aggression and my size.”

Arnette has not been to USC but plans to camp there June 13th. He did go to Miami’s junior day.

He’s not claiming favorites right now. “My mind is open.” He could have a decision around the end of the school year or by the end of summer.
