Terrion Arnold was one of eight five-star athletes that signed to this recruiting class for Alabama football.

A native of Tallahassee, Fla., he looks to provide an impact on the team.

He turned in much success at St. John Paul II Catholic High School as he shined at safety.

Arnold proved to be a ball magnet, especially with his ability to return interceptions for touchdowns. He was also a secure tackler who took pride in creating huge hits in open space.

Arnold and Kool-Aid McKinstry arrived as five-stars, but the coaching staff is excited about Arnold’s potential.

UJ Johnson, an assistant strength coach for the Crimson Tide, gave a rave review of Arnold’s personality and stated that he has “special” ability via Instagram. According to Justin Smith, the scouting/recruiting analyst for Touchdown Alabama Magazine, Arnold has an incredible personality and work ethic. During his analysis of Arnold, Smith said he has the tools to be a star.

The 6-foot, 180-pounder is very athletic and possesses a high football intelligence.

Alabama has a loaded room in its defensive secondary; however, Arnold may have an opportunity. He should get looks on special teams and a chance might open in the secondary if he excels in kickoff and punt coverage. Jordan Battle and DeMarcco Hellams are expected to be the starting safeties in the fall. Daniel Wright has some experience, and we may see Brian Branch get reps there too. Kristian Story is a young player the coaching staff is high on. Despite the names, Arnold has the talent to run with them.

It will be interesting to see how he progresses when fall camp starts.
