Biography: Four-year starter awarded varying degrees of All-Conference honors since his freshman season. Senior rushing totals included 168/723/12 with 18/112 as a pass catcher. Junior ground numbers included 197/1074/7. He recorded a career best 1076-yards rushing as a freshman.
Positives: Short, elusive ball-carrier with the ability to create his own yardage. Patient, waits for blocks to develop and displays good running vision. Elusive, sets defenders up and makes them miss at the line of scrimmage or in the open field. Bounces it to the outside, avoiding piles and will pick his way on the inside.
Negatives: Possesses a marginal burst of speed. Does not play with strength or pick up a lot yardage off initial contact.
Analysis: Arnold has been very productive on the college level the past four seasons and has enough skill to make it as a situational runner on a team that keeps four halfbacks.
