Four-star cornerback Chevin Calloway has three schools leading in his recruitment almost two months after he decommitted from Iowa. 


When Chevin Calloway decommitted from Iowa on Nov. 7 it wasn’t without drama.

The 4-star recruit initially committed to the Hawkeyes on July 11 but backed off that pledge due to his desire to take visits to other schools, which Iowa did not want to happen as long as he was a part of its 2017 recruiting class.

Calloway, the No. 14 cornerback and No. 137 overall player in the country, spoke to Rivals regarding the situation.

“I think that was very, sort of, hypocritical for them to do that. Again, I committed early out of what I’d seen and what I thought would be the best fit for me. But I was definitely unaware of the no-visit policy until I actually committed and went on to other schools to visit,” he said.

And after some mixed messages from the Iowa staff and no word from head coach Kirk Ferentz, Calloway soured on the idea of being a Hawkeye.

He did not care for the broken communication and the idea that he wasn’t allowed to take other visits, but Iowa was pursuing players who were committed elsewhere, especially at cornerback.

What’s done is done, and Calloway is no longer a part of the Hawkeyes’ 2017 class. There are now three schools leading in his recruitment as it currently stands: Arkansas, Ole Miss and Texas. Here is what Calloway had to say on all three:

On Arkansas

“Arkansas was a team I watched since I was little. I’m from Pine Bluff, Arkansas, so Arkansas was always a team I loved watching. I have a lot of family down there that loves Arkansas. That’s some of the reasons why Arkansas is on my top.” 

On Ole Miss

“I visited them a few weekends ago,” Calloway said. “When I went down there I loved the feel. You could tell the coaches have a really close relationship with the players.”

On Texas

“Coach Herman actually reached out to me as soon as he got down there, him and the cornerbacks coach, they still have one more spot as far as the secondary is concerned so they’ve reached out to me a lot.”
