Dallas Bishop Dunne cornerback Chevin Calloway is officially down to three schools — the Arkansas Razorbacks, Ole Miss Rebels, and Texas Longhorns, he told Horns247 on Monday.
An Under Armour All-American, Calloway committed to Iowa over the summer, but then decided to re-open his recruitment in November because the Hawkeyes staff does not allow committed prospects to visit other schools.
Since then, the 5’10, 180-pounder visited Ole Miss last weekend and made plans to visit Arkansas on January 20. Texas will likely receive an official visit from Calloway the week before or the week after he trips to Fayetteville.
The former Longhorns coaching staff seemingly surged with the consensus four-star prospect after hosting him twice between early April and early June, but the surging Hawkeyes won out for his first pledge.
Now cornerbacks coach Jason Washington is trying to build a strong enough relationship to convince Calloway to seriously consider Texas before he makes his second commitment.
Arkansas is currently considered the favorite and has been dating back to August.
Calloway is the No. 116 prospect nationally, the No. 12 cornerback, and the No. 19 player in the state of Texas, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.
Texas currently holds pledges from two cornerbacks — Kobe Boyce and Josh Thompson — but neither is as highly-rated as Calloway and new head coach Tom Herman appears intent on adding at least one more player at the position.
