After going 9-2 in his senior season at Watkins Memorial High School in Pataskala, Ohio, Eric Arnett took his right-handed pitching talents to Indiana University.

Arnett made his debut for Indiana at Eastern Illinois at the AutoZone Classic. His first start came against Florida A&M in his freshman season in 2007, which also became his first career win.

In his sophomore season, he played in 17 games, starting seven times and pitching one complete game. Throughout these games he struck out 37 batters in 66 innings.

His biggest and most successful season was his junior year in 2009. Arnett was named Big-Ten co-Pitcher of the Year, was selected for the First Team All-Big Ten, and was a finalist for the College Baseball Foundation’s National Pitcher of the Year Award. Among these honors, he also was the first pitcher in school history to be named conference Pitcher of the Year. He then went on to play for the Big Ten All-Tournament Team.
