He came to the University of Alabama in 2021 as a five-star athlete, but he grew into one of the best boundary cornerbacks in the Southeastern Conference. Some even felt he outperformed his teammate, Ga’Quincy “Kool-Aid” McKinstry, who projects as a top 10-15 selection for the upcoming NFL Draft. Arnold could have returned to school for next season, but he announced via Instagram that he is turning pro. He shared a heartfelt video on social media, thanking the Crimson Tide for everything.

Arnold, a native of Tallahassee, Fla., finished last season with 63 total tackles. 

He had 6.5 tackles for loss, a sack, 12 pass breakups (team-high), two quarterback hurries, a forced fumble, and a team-leading five interceptions. Arnold collaborated with Jalen Milroe, a sophomore quarterback, on an acronym that changed the trajectory of Alabama’s season. Let All Naysayers Know or L.A.N.K. galvanized the Crimson Tide after a week two loss to Texas. It challenged everyone to believed in each other, and it led to the Tide winning an SEC Championship and making the College Football Playoff. 

Alabama fans will miss Arnold, but they are looking forward to see the NFL team who drafts him.
