Arena plays for Bishop McDevitt in Harrisburg, PA, which is an area that head coach Brent Pry, offensive coordinator Tyler Bowen and offensive line coach Joe Rudolph know very well.

Arena is rated as the No. 24 prospect in the state of Pennsylvania by 247Sports, and No. 19 by On3. Tech was his first Power 5 offer, and he chose the Hokies over Marshall, Temple, Bowling Green, Buffalo, Kent State, Toledo, and several other Group of 5 programs.
