Connor is a solid 4/post player who has an advanced basketball IQ for his age.

We at the Phenom Hoop Report first watched Connor Arnold at our NC Phenom 150 camp back in 2014. Only a freshman at the time, we liked what we saw in him. We wrote, 'Connor is a solid 4/post player who has an advanced basketball IQ for his age. He demonstrated the ability to find the cutter from the high post position and is able to spot the open shooter along the perimeter. Arnold has a nice touch from ten feet in and has very good hands.'

Each year, we were able to watch Connor at our fall evaluation camps and also with his travel ball team, Tennessee Fury. Last summer at the Havoc in Spartanburg, South Carolina, we watched him extensively and his play dovetailed with our assessments back to 2014 and years in between. We stated in our Havoc review,'Arnold is a long and lean wing forward. He has extremely good ability to play inside/outside with his 6'7 frame and has gotten him on the radar with many low major D1 and D2 teams.' We're talking about a young that has shown consistency throughout his high school career. Playing for Grace Christian out of Knoxville, Tennessee, he averaged 17.3 PPG his senior season. His personal awards include District MVP, All Region, Region MVP, Two Time All State 1st team and 1st team All Prep Xtra. We have always been impressed with his perimeter shooting and ability to drive to the rim. In addition, we believed he was a legit low major prospect. He plays at all three levels.

Although Connor needs to develop additional strength, he does possess good length. Throughout his high school career, he has shown to be a high character student athlete. He is known to his teammates as a supremely unselfish and team oriented player. His high school team has been highly successful and his solid play was a major reason as Grace Christian made three straight semi-finals in Tennessee. Offensively, Connor has all the needed skill set to play at the D1 level. While he could benefit in a college weight room, he does have a huge long term upside. Like many young players today, he is vastly under the recruiting radar. He is fully qualified at the D1 and D2 level. Yes, schools that are looking to add a quality player late in the upcoming April signing period should definitely take a serious look at Connor. Someone will get a steal of a player and person in Connor
