One of the star defenders for the Ohio State defense in 2018, cornerback Damon Arnette enjoyed a very good junior season en route to a Rose Bowl title. He’s now eligible to leave school and head to the NFL, and recently made his decision.
On Friday, Arnette announced on his Instagram page that he would be staying at Ohio State for his senior year.
In the post, Arnette thanked former Buckeyes head coach Urban Meyer and said he spoke with Ohio State legend Cris Carter before making the decision.
“Let’s get it,” Arnette wrote in the caption.
This will undoubtedly come as good news to new head coach Ryan Day, who will have one of the best cornerbacks in college football available for one more year.
Arnette finished his junior year with 40 tackles, one interception, and six passes defended.
In three seasons at Ohio State, Arnette has 105 tackles, 3.0 tackles for loss, four interceptions, eight passes defended, a forced fumble, and a fumble recovery.
