New school involved with Arnold

Brandon Arnold remains mainly focused on Cal and Michigan State as his two favorites but the Encino (Calif.) Crespi safety said another Pac-12 school has inched back in and could receive an official visit.
"Those two schools right now and I'm also thinking about Oregon State," Arnold said. "They've been more involved with me recently. They've been contacting me."
The 6-foot, 183-pound three-star safety has mainly been talking up the Golden Bears and Spartans for weeks and both still stand out in his recruitment.
No official visits have been determined but Arnold is expected to talk with the Cal and Michigan State coaching staffs soon to book the dates.
Oregon State could be entering the picture more but the Encino Crespi standout said Cal and Michigan State are still the frontrunners.
Arnold, rated as the No. 40 safety in the 2013 class by Rivals.com, said he doesn't plan to make his commitment until after his trips.
"Nothing has been set up yet," Arnold said. "I talked to the coach of Cal and letting them know I want to take my official either during my bye week to see a game or after my season.
"I'm still looking to visit Michigan State, too. I'm going to call them and set something up."
The three-star recruit has been busy early this season as Crespi had two challenging games and dominated both.
Arnold and his team have defeated Tucson (Ariz.) Salpointe, 35-20, and Woodland Hills (Calif.) Taft, 43-7, early on.
"We just had to come out fast and be relentless," Arnold said. "We had to show up and play hard and now we're getting ready for next week.
"They've been running the ball mostly and when they throw the ball they're throwing it to the flat, something that's away from Tyler (Foreman) and me but we do our best to run downhill and make a play."
