Damon Arnette Called Last-Minute Audible in Decision to Stay at Ohio State Instead of Leaving for 2019 NFL Draft

As Damon Arnette traveled back to Ohio State on the Monday after the Rose Bowl, he was planning to enter the 2019 NFL draft.

Arnette had already said goodbye to his teammates and coaches, and he hadn’t flown back with the team from Pasadena. He had planned to pack up his things upon his arrival back in Columbus that Monday, with a flight out of town scheduled for that Thursday.

Arnette began to rethink that decision, however, when he received a call from former Ohio State great and Pro Football Hall of Fame wide receiver Cris Carter.
