Three looking good for Arnold

Three programs are standing out to Brandon Arnold but the Encino (Calif.) Crespi three-star safety said he still isn't ready to make his decision.
Cal, Michigan State and Oregon lead the way for Arnold, a 6-foot, 183-pound prospect who has seen his recruitment absolutely take off in recent months.
Rivals.com rates him as the No. 47 safety in the 2013 class and No. 64 in the California state rankings.
"I'm probably going to take some official visits and then I'll make my decision later on," Arnold said.
Those three programs stand out most but Arnold also has offers from Arizona, Colorado, Colorado State, Hawaii, Iowa State, Oregon State, South Dakota, South Dakota State and Washington State. The Ducks have not offered him yet.
Visits could be important in his decision-making process.
"I like Oregon because it's on the West Coast and my family could still see me," Arnold said. "I like the area, I like the weather, I like playing in cold weather and it's a great school with great facilities.
"I like Cal a lot because it's in California so that makes it a lot easier for my family to see me play. They have great facilities, it's a really good academic school and I like the program they have going up there and the coaching staff.
"At Michigan State, even though it's further away from home, I still like it a lot because there is great history with the football team, it's a great academic school and I really like the weather and the area up there."
