Arnett Using Commitment Eve to Commit to...All of Them?

Submitted by Swazi on November 9th, 2010 at 10:48 PM

Ed-M: Six! Six fake commits ah ah ah. Sorry for hijacking this thread, but it's too entertaining not to have it all in one place.

For those just joining us, 4-star WR DeAnthony Arnett has a press conference tomorrow night to announce his school choice. In the meantime, he is having a bit of fun at the expense of fans who follow this stuff way too closely.

Look in the mirror, then look here.

Wherever DeAnthony commits, I give him credit -- this is one of the best roasts of the recruiting nutters that I've ever seen....

He's picking USC:


Wait, no, it's Michigan:


Just kiddin, M. It's Central Michigan:


Aw Hell, It's Tennessee:

]'s Slippery Rock...wait no the 'University of Michigan State':


No no no it's "The University of Cal" (last one):


And then the respective online fanbases get the screen turned around on them.

Thank you DeAnthony and brotherguy for a hilarious night. [/takeover]

Not sure if this is him being serious, or him messing around with everyones head again.  Take it for what it's worth.

I couldn't get sound while at work, but for those who couldn't click the link, in the video it appears he's sitting in his living room and eventually dons a USC hat.

The title of the video is "Sorry I couldnt wait for 2moro I want to thank all coaches for offering me! My skool is...."

video has legitimate reasons. Lane Kiffin best Coach ever?!?!??? LOLZ. Denard winning the heisman? Possible. Devin Garder being good friends with him? Guy is having fun with the process and I say more power to him. At least he's taken his time, taken his visits and at least it sounds like he's really considered the diff aspects of each college.

I thought he had a lighter and started burning something off-camera. I really wanted him to put the ohio state sweatshirt back into the frame with a flame engulfing it. That would have been awesome. Maybe he was trying to light it and it didn't work, which I'm assuming would happen since sweatshirts probably don't burn too easily.

I think he's just setting up to announce Tennessee tomorrow.  It would pain Volunteer fans so much if he went to USC.  I dont think he could rip their hearts out twice?


November 9th, 2010 at 7:40 PM ^

I'm waiting for the videos of him committing to MSU, UT, Michigan, and Cal to pop up now.  This strikes me over the head as a joke.  He's having a hell of a good time with the process. 

I don't think the video is a good sign for USC.  He and his brother (?) are pretty clearly making fun of Lane Kiffin.

If they are NOT making fun of Lane and he is indeed going to USC then I think it's safe to say academics would've presented a challenge to him here. 

I think he's probably the first person to use the words "Lane Kiffin" and "greatest coaches of all time" in the same sentence.

"I'm waiting for the videos of him committing to MSU, UT, Michigan, and Cal to pop up now."

This is exactly what popped into my head after seeing this. How can anyone watching this not realize it is a joke?

messing about the Tide.

Seems to be a new trend amongst recruits to be a joker. Big Will's fake towards the LSU hat during his process was scary as hell too :(


Off topic - should I be concerned that Arnett does not have dreadlocks?
