TTB Rating:

Arnou is in his first year at Michigan after transferring in as a walk-on. The fall of 2024 will be his third season of college football after walking on at Fresno State in 2021, where he redshirted behind Jake Haener . . . and played for Kalen DeBoer, who went on to be Washington’s head coach in 2022-2023 and whom Michigan beat for the national championship back in January.

Arnou then went on to play for Pasadena City College in 2022, where he played a fair amount. Watching his highlights from that season, he looks like a fine lower level college prospect. He looks like a Division II potential starter to me. But he’s a little heavy-footed even at that level, and his arm strength and throwing mechanics leave something to be desired.

It’s nice to have a player like Arnou on the roster for the scout team, but Michigan already has depth – not proven depth, but depth – at the quarterback position. There are about three guys vying for the starting quarterback job, and another couple with higher upside, including freshman Jadyn Davis. Other than the outstanding education, the awesome city that is Ann Arbor, and a chance to have some team success, I’m not really sure why a player like Arnou would transfer to Michigan if he’s looking for playing time.

Prediction: Backup quarterback
