USC 2015 commitment DB Damon Arnette of Fort Lauderdale has made multiple visits to Columbia but Saturday night was the first time he'd been to a game at Williams-Brice Stadium. Arnette made an unofficial visit for the Missouri game and was joined by his parents.

"Everything was great," Arnette said. "The atmosphere was great. It's just sad that we lost."

Arnette focused much of his attention during the game on the USC defense and in particular the play of the secondary.

'It seems like they have a great chemistry together," he said. "I thought they did a pretty good job. They played man much of the night. Brison (Williams) and Al (Harris Jr.) did a pretty good job."

Arnette doesn't plans to take his official visit to USC until the big recruiting weekend in January. He also will take official visits to Ohio State, Louisville and Kentucky. The only date his knows is Louisville on November 29th for the Kentucky game.

"My commitment is real strong," Arnette said. "I don't see me going anywhere else."
