Akili Arnold signs with Oregon State Football

The former Utah State commit flips to Oregon State

NCAA Football: Stanford at Oregon State Scott Olmos-USA TODAY Sports

Akili Arnold is a 6-foot-1, 190-pound defensive back from Mission Viejo, California. He was actually high school teammates with fellow Oregon State recruit Jojo Forest. Arnold originally verbally committed to Utah State, but in a signing day surprise he decided to head to Corvallis instead.

Akili Arnold is a seriously talented athlete who held offers from Arizona State, Utah State, Boston College, Colorado State and a host of other schools. The Beavers had to fight off a last minute bid from USC, but Arnold is committed to teaming up with Alex Austin and the rest of the 2019 recruiting class.
